About our makers

Our Studios line is hand cut, sewn and finished by women’s charities based across Brick Lane, Limehouse and Poplar in East London.

FabricWorks gives free tailoring courses to local women experiencing unemployment, low confidence or domestic violence.

Heba was established by and for women of colour over 27 years ago, and continue to provide a safe space for migrant and refugee women today.

Embroidery details designed by Birdsong, and machine stitched by Mona at a community sewing project. A queen of her community,  Mona provides training, sewing classes and moral support to the Poplar housing estate in which she’s based.

Hand-painted daisy and orange motifs by a group of migrant and low income women based in Bow. Roksana and the gang practise their fine painting for Birdsong while their children attend school in the same building.

The women at each of these groups are each paid a London Living Wage per hour to manufacture goods for Birdsong.

Our collection was predominantly made from reclaimed, recycled textiles courtesy of Traid.Dress and sweatshirt by Know The Origin. T-shirts manufactured ethically by Stanley & Stella.
