Looks good, feels better: Adding sustainable pieces to your wardrobe with Bird & Kite

GABRIELLA DRESS 

If you’re new here, to adding sustainable fashion to your wardrobe that is, don’t worry, so am I.
Before I met Bird & Kite, understanding the value of thoughtful, slow fashion wasn’t really on my radar.

Sure, I’ve shopped sustainable brands before, intentionally browsed the ‘conscious’ section of my favourite sites and even been surprised and proud when I learned that some of the brands I know and love are practising sustainability without me even knowing it.

But Bird + Kite are the ones who got me hooked. Admittedly, it was their raw, minimal and dreamy designs that first made me think, ‘yep, I need these in my wardrobe’. Sustainable or not, I wanted in.
So when I learned about all the incredible things they were doing behind the scenes, to make sure their designs were waste-free, produced without plastic and with traditional methods of production that empowered artisans, wearing their designs became even more of an honour.

Because, when you wear a consciously created piece from Bird & Kite, it’s not just a gorgeously crafted outfit that looks good. It feels good too.


There’s something about knowing that what you’re wearing was made with minimal impact on the environment that will have you feeling crazy good about your outfit. Not to mention the fact that it was made by a company that empowers women (with 80% of garment workers being women) and pays them fairly for the traditional craftsmanship they pour into every design.

So if you’re thinking of embracing slower fashion, the kind that is handcrafted and made to last (so that you can wear it over and over again!), I encourage you to indulge in everything Bird & Kite. And while you’re there, make sure you check out their brand ethos, because believe me, it will have you feeling even better than you look.
