FACTS & HISTORY: Throughout history and all over the globe, the extraordinary pheasant has been hunted for game and sport, prized for its tail feathers and pelts, as well as being used for food and kept as pets. There are over 15 different species of pheasants, and many sub species. The most well known to the Western fashion world are the colorful male peacocks of Asia, the Long Tail pheasants such as the common RingNeck, and the Ruffed Lady Amhurst pheasant. Many more exotic pheasants such as the majestic Firebacks, the colorful Monals, the Grand Argus, and Japanese Mikado, are less well known, but equal in their beauty.
Feathers have been used for adornment and decoration since prehistoric times. The Ancestral Pueblo (Anasazi) Indians constructed a turkey-feather and yucca-cord fabric before their introduction to the loom. Highly advanced featherwork in Hawaii, New Zealand, Tahiti, and New Guinea had its counterpart throughout Mesoamerica and Peru.
