MEET THE DESIGNER: BONES AND FEATHERS COLLECTIVE

Bones and Feathers Collective
Natalie Mauro and Cole Morrall SHOP ALL
Approximately 30 seconds after Kate Bosworth was spotted sporting one of Natalie Mauro (left) and Cole Morrall’s handcrafted floral headpieces at Coachella in 2010, all the cool girls who wanted flowers in their hair were abuzz about Bones and Feathers Collective, a company that was practically birthed from a midday text message. “I was working for a designer, and he said, ‘Why don’t you start an accessories line?’” Natalie recalls. “So I texted Cole saying, ‘Do you want to start a line together?’ She responded ‘Yah! We’ll make it out of bones and feathers!’”  READ MORE

Though the pair graduated from NYC’s Fordham University just a few semesters apart, they didn’t meet until a mutual friend introduced them in L.A. Right away, they bonded over their East Coast escape: “For us, New York was a bit draining. L.A. is nurturing and fulfilling,” Natalie explains. Creatively, fulfilling meant drifting away from their line’s bohemian, flora-filled roots toward the tough stuff, eventually crafting jewelry from beads and charms cast from shark, snake, and fox vertebrae. “We’re both interested in indigenous cultures and how they repurpose materials into something awesome,” Natalie explains. “For me, it really brings an awareness of the animal,” Cole adds. —lauren caruso
