UPDATE: How to help/Hope in the dark

Latest Coronavirus Update - 24th March

Due to the government lock down and social distancing measures, our workshops and warehouse are now closed for the time being. Our number one priority is to keep our workers safe, which means unfortunately that there will be a significant delay to all pre-orders. We are incredibly grateful for your support and patience at this time. If you have not yet recieved your items and want to get in touch, we shall be online on or on our support WhatApp to chat. We're also happy through any customer queries - sizing, style advice etc. 

We really want to be able to support our seamstresses as much as possible during this time, and with our makers being from low income backgrounds we really appreciate your continued support of them and us.

Please do continue to put orders in, and as soon as the world is a little bit safer we'll get to it. We'll keep making beautiful clothes you'll feel good in and supporting local, Living Wage jobs to the people who need it most as long as we have your continued support.

Hope you're all taking care of yourselves and each other.
Big love from the Birdsong team X

how to help

  1. Stay home.
  2. Lists of mutual aid groups in the UK. Join if healthy to support the most vulnerable people in your area from online.
  3. Donate sanitation and food supplies to food banks and homelessness services. 
  4. Consider sponsoring a period for a refugee via our friends at Bloody Good Period.
  5. Support your local artist, musician, and performing arts friends. Shop at local businesses and small shops instead of the big supermarkets.
  6. Take care of your own mental and physical health.

“Inside the word "emergency" is "emerge"; from an emergency new things come forth. The old certainties are crumbling fast, but danger and possibility are sisters.”
