The story of Hammock Feather Bow Tie derives from an important land feature "Hammock". Smaller than an island, a Hammock offers dry land in the middle of tidal or high water areas, which is important for different bird species for perching, courtship, mating, nesting, and foraging. This small ecosystem plays a large role in the lives of various colorful wildlife. It is made from peacock feathers. Handmade in Charleston, SC.
