Feathers of Knysna Gallery

Feathers of Knysna known for its carved wooden birds

Feathers of Knysna's story began more than 24 years ago in the picturesque coastal town of Knysna. Situated along the famous South African Garden Route, Knysna has a rich heritage of artists, and is a town particularly well known for its carved wooden bird industry, which was started by Feathers in 1986.

Original collection - first bird carved

A modest start indeed, the first bird being carved on a dining room table with rudimentary tools. The original collection comprised of 14 different carvings, now numbering some 380 collectable and limited edition figurines.

Range of wooden birds and animals crested with fine pewter heads

Originally, Feathers of Knysna specialized only in wooden birds, but as the company grew, the product range expanded to include various other products, made with equal attention to quality and detail. The range now includes ceramic castings of wildlife, ceramic birds, cats and an incredible range of wooden birds and animals crested with fine pewter heads.

Corporate gifts, Trophy’s and gifts
Feathers of Knysna is the choice for bird and wildlife corporate gifts, having the distinction of being commissioned for designing presentations for President Jacob Zuma, ex-President Thabo Mbeki, Princess Irene of the Netherlands, and many prestigious companies requiring trophy presentations, and gifts.
