Frequently Asked Questions
It’s crucial that you know no bird has been harmed for their feathers. Brackish obtains all feathers as humanely as possible. When birds molt, they lose old feathers naturally in preparation for new feathers. When possible, the feathers are obtained in this manner. In other instances, feathers are obtained through farmers who raise free range birds. The feathers are usually thrown away as a waste product, but Brackish sustainably reuses them. We wholeheartedly believe in respectfully repurposing nature.
All of our products are handcrafted from start to finish in our Charleston, SC studio. If you’re ever in the area, please stop by for a tour and see our artisans at work. We are open Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm, excluding holidays.
Yes, gift cards are available for purchase online and/or at our studio in Charleston, SC. If you purchase a gift card online you will receive it electronically via email. Electronic emails can either be sent straight to the recipient, or the purchaser for later gifting.

Note - Gift cards cannot be redeemed or returned for cash value, reloaded with additional value, resold, or transferred for value, except where required by law.

Yes! Each Brackish cuff has been intentionally designed to protect the feather craftsmanship. Though firm, each is adjustable. To size the cuff to your wrist, clasp your hand around the hardware and gently apply pressure.

Returns & Exchanges
Our standard policy offers a 30 day return and exchange policy from the date of purchase on all orders purchased directly from Brackish. No exceptions. All returns must be approved by our Quality Control Department before a refund can be issued. If the product shows signs of wear, we cannot issue a return. Refunds on shipping costs, gift wrapping, promotional items or box engraving are not available. Unfortunately, because of customs and tariff issues, Brackish cannot provide complimentary return shipping for international orders. Nonetheless, we will be happy to work with you to find an efficient way of returning the product. If an international order is returned and duties and/or fees are due at the time of delivery, this will be deducted from the refund amount.

Orders with all in-stock products will ship within 1-2 business days of the order being placed.
