Review: Birdsong

Do you want to be ethical whilst staying comfy in bed finding Dorito remnants in unspeakable places?*

Then Birdsong is just for you!

They’re an emerging London-based fashion brand who find the best clothes makers from women’s groups and bring them to you, with a promise of no sweatshops and no Photoshop. Not only will you look good (obviously) but you will feel good about wearing them too.

Birdsong necklace

From migrant seamstresses to knitting grannies, Birdsong champion women from all kinds of backgrounds who share a love of fashun. And all of these beautiful, finely curated clothes are modeled on diverse, unedited women. A refreshing change that GFL loves!

Since 2014, Birdsong have made over £20,000 for women’s organisations and they do this by choosing designs that are made to last, meaning their customers keep going back for more. Check out the website and see if you can pick between the chitenge printed Malawian designs, to fine needlework from around the corner in Brick Lane, or traditional Palestinian embroidery.

Coat Birdsong

Whether it’s luxurious lingerie (wit woo), affordable tote bags, or one of a kind bomber jackets, Birdsong has something for all our much-loved GFL readers (we do really love you).

GFL rating: 4 stars

*Doritos are made with palm oil, an ingredient which is leading to the squishing of the Amazon rainforest, so step awaaaay from the Doritos.
