As Australia’s first climate neutral business, ‘Bird’ is a young brand with
a big voice and a strong platform for creating awareness about sustainability amongst consumers.
Bird is the brainchild of designer, Rachel Bending, whose work focuses
on pioneering sustainability in design.
Rachels work started with Slingfings, a brand widely recognized for its environmental consciousness, spearheading a new era of consumerism.
Bird continues this brand ethos.
Birds’ collection of exquisitely designed fabrics are at the core of the brand.
The prints are designed at our studio in the Byron Bay hinterland and hand printed using water based dyes. A range of timeless garments, homewares
and giftwares have been developed to compliment the fabrics. The products
are then handmade using solar power.
Bird is a range of luxury eco products for those who appreciate quality
and style, and care about the planet on which they live.
Rachel is from the UK originally, and studied textile design at the renowned Glasgow School of Art in the early 90’s. She spent several years working as
an event director for The Princes Trust and the Saatchi group in London
before emigrating to Australia in 2001 and has combined her passion for
the environment with her training in design to create Bird.
Bird products are handmade on the edge of the rainforest, in the Byron Bay hinterland, on the coast of northern New South Wales, Australia.
Bird ……pioneering sustainability in design.
