Wholesale Feather Suppliers | Carnival Feathers | Trimming Stores NYC & Miami | Swarovski Rhinestone
Posted: Jul 27, 2016
I heard about Shi’dor quite a long time ago. It was back in the day when there were rumors of Trinidad & Miami Carnival costumes being made in China and India. Out of curiosity I asked around and found out that most of the supplies were coming from Shi’dor and Schuman in Miami. Throughout the years I have watched Shi’dor's work with designers and mas bands, both locally and provincially, and have been inspired at the upgrades in both quality and workmanship.
My own involvement with Shi’dor's came when I played in YUMA. Shi’dor was in charge of the carnival wire bras and custom work for my group. To date my custom bra (36DDD) was the best quality wire bra I have ever worn. My wire bra is still in impeccable condition to date.
In summary, Shi’dor is a supplier of carnival supplies and accessories. The company also makes Carnival costumes, small and large (king and queen costumes). Shi’dor has reps in New York City, Miami, and various Caribbean Islands. Shi’dor is the big band's best kept secret for materials, for example, stones, appliqués and particularly feathers. With more than 50 nagorie hues in stock I have been told this is your hotspot for nagorie feathers in the event that you are in the mas making industry. All of my carnival friends that are into overhauling their costumes and making them more grand go to Shi’dor for stones, trims and feathers.
Shi’dor has been creating enhanced bras, belts and embellishments for both masqueraders and bands in Trinidad & Miami, for example, Tribe, Fantasy, Mascots International, YUMA Vibe, and One Island Band in Miami and New York. It has even been said that Shi’dor is the best trimming store in NYC even though it’s primarily based online.
Consistently I get various messages asking about wholesale feather suppliers, wire bras, trims, gem stones, hackle, and nagorie feathers. I send all of them to Shi’dor. The website for Shi’dor is really exhaustive and gives an outline of items at a bargain while the Instagram profile is constantly overhauled with new things in stock. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org for any new items you don’t see. They are really good with sourcing.
