We will be running our next clothes swap on 17th August 2016 at Dalston Roof Park from 6.30pm, more details and tickets are available here. This event will be in aid of Birdsong London but we need your help to decide how these funds are allocated.
No sweatshops, no photoshop
Birdsong finds the best female makers and brings them to you, no sweatshops, no photoshop. Started in August 2014 by a trio of feminist founders, Birdsong sources fairly made fashion, from chitenge-printed bomber jackets to quirky bone jewellery. Each purchase gives 50-85% back to the women who made it, from groups in Malawi to seamstresses on Brick Lane.
The founders saw the effects that funding cuts were having on women’s organisations. Many of these women had incredible crafting skills that weren’t being shown off to the world. Birdsong London decided to source beautifully made clothing from these groups. In doing so they help make over £10,000 for women’s charities annually.
Vote which group to support
Our August event will donate funds to one of these groups and we would like your help to decide which one.
