About us

Who we are

Birdsong is an emerging fashion brand for people who expect more from their wardrobe. We find the best makers from women’s groups and bring them to you, with a promise of no sweatshops & no photoshop.

 

We’re seek to revolutionise the way we shop, by sourcing products from women’s organisations with rare skills. From migrant seamstresses to knitting grannies, we unite women from different backgrounds.

 

Combining the skills of women’s groups with the talent of contemporary designers, we bring our brand to life using diverse, unedited, models.

Why we do it

Started by three feminists in their twenties, Birdsong began in 2014 as founders Sarah, Sophie & Ruba saw the effects that funding cuts were having on women’s organisations. Many of these women had incredible crafting skills that weren’t being shown off to the world.

 
With our digital marketing, photography and design skills, we decided to source beautifully made clothing from these groups.  We’ve since made over £20,000 for women’s organisations doing great work.

What you can expect

We offer finely curated clothes from an eclectic mix of skills and cultures. We choose designs that are made to last, not just from season to season, but to see you into the future. From our chitenge printed Malawian designs, to fine needlework from Brick Lane, and traditional Palestinian embroidery, our makers are selected for their incredible craftswomenship.

 

Whether it’s luxurious everyday lingerie, to affordable tote bags, and one of a kind bomber jackets, we have something for every woman. For the products we manufacture, we make clothes in any size.
