Nancybird is a Melbourne based label, committed to good making and good design. Everything we make is designed in our sunny Northcote studio. The collections of leather goods, footwear, garments and home wares have a distinctively Australian feel, using raw, earthy materials.
We work directly with our makers, who are all small producers, in Australia, China, India, Korea and Europe.
We have produced custom ranges for clients such as NGV, AGNSW and Anthropologie US.
Nancybird is conscious of their environmental impact, and we have implemented changes large and small, for example:
- our HQ uses 100% wind power
- we flat pack all items and use recycled cardboard boxes
- wherever possible we choose to sea freight our bulk deliveries
- our preference is for natural materials – silk, cotton, linen and vegetable tanned leather
For Leather Bags and Wallets:
We manufacture our leather bags and wallets in China, just outside of Shenzhen, in a small family run factory of about 30 skilled workers. We met them through another Melbourne label, who had been producing with them for many years. They started their business almost 30 years ago, producing initially in Hong Kong, and we have been working with them every season for 9 years. We source the leather from a small Korean tannery, custom producing high quality vegetable tanned cow leathers, using hides exclusively from the USA.
We have been working with our footwear manufacturer for almost 4 years, after making contact through a trade fair in Hong Kong. We were impressed with their lovely raw, earthy leathers and excellent finishing – they stood out from the sea of bling. They are based in Guangzhou, a small factory of about 60 skilled workers. Starting with just one style, we have slowly built our range of footwear to include sandals, boots, loafers and lace ups. With handmade stitched and printed details, vegetable tanned sheep leathers, we produce small quantities each season to keep it special. They will always be in super wearable shapes too – no high heels around here!
We have been working with this small Hangzhou garment manufacturer for a bit over 2 years – our newest manufacturer in the Nancybird family. They are a very small independent factory of 10. We found them after a long search for a producer to make our signature digitally printed clothing – a relatively new printing process with a big variation in quality. We were so excited to get our very first samples from them – spot on colour, vibrant, high quality finishing. We have conducted an independent audit on the factory, checking working conditions such as voluntary overtime, factory cleanliness and light, age of workers. We were really happy with the results, and plan to visit later this year.
Our small capsule ranges of homewares uses various small artisans both locally and worldwide. There is a strong focus on ethically made, with production supporting traditional communities and use of low environmental impact materials a must.
