“We founded Birdsong based on our experiences working with marginalised women on the frontline, in women's organisations in the UK.
We are an ethical and sustainable fashion brand, but first and foremost we're a social enterprise. This means that even through tough times like this global crisis, our number one priority is the well being of our makers.
With your support we can come out of this and continue to provide meaningful, dignified work and living wages to the local communities we support.
Thank you, we couldn't do this without you."
"I am proud to be one of the Birdsong makers (providing embroidery services). I have never felt that I am displaced as a migrant, feeling lost or I can’t fit in, but working with them has always made me feel at home, comfortable, accepted, safe, and understood.
They support migrants and create job opportunities. I admire their commitment and vision of enabling women from different background (my students and myself) to become independent, with no limitations such as who we are or where we come from."
"I design everything in house from our East London studio, collecting inspiration from art, nature and culture. Together with our makers, we build concepts around their skills to create our collections.
We hand sketch every silhouette, detail and print, then share them online, keeping feedback from our community in mind through the design process. Finding partners to source our fabric from with an equal commitment to ethics and sustainability is no easy task.
We only source from the most ecologically friendly and high quality suppliers we can find."
