>As I gobbled up Bird Textile’s website I discovered they are Byron Bay based and claim to be Australia’s first climate neutral business they design 3 new fabrics each season and make stylish clothes from their beautiful fabrics.
They have a strong focus on sustainability using solar power for fabric production and sewing. Other emissions such as freight of raw materials and delivery of finished goods are offset through climate friendly.
Dyes are water based and materials are 100% natural and purchased from locally owned small businesses where ever possible.
They sell both fabrics and garments and encourage purchasing through local stockists however they will make to order through their sister company slingfing.
Their commitment to sustainability is clear, but they haven’t compromised style. I was so excited by Bird Textiles that I rushed off to my nearest stockist as soon as possible to pick up some fabric. I chose the vine leaf design in blood/ruby. I can’t wait to start sewing!
