A BIRD UPDATE
Mark your calendars! On Monday, 16th September, Bird's first collection will be making its way into the world.
We are deep in testing mode for all three pieces. Our first samples are currently making their rounds in kitchens across the UK.
Our wear-tester recipe: wear, report, update, repeat.
Above you can see Naomi Devlin chopping and wear-testing away in our Phase 2 Chef White. On top of some helpful feedback, she mentioned, “I’ve been mentioning your project (in a nonspecific way) to female chefs I’ve been working with and there is so much of an appetite for it!”
It is our main goal to satisfy that very appetite, and so we've asked Naomi and other wonderful wear-testers to give our samples a spin. We want to provide all of you Women In Food with the pieces you've been waiting for.
Thank you to all the women helping us take these massive steps forward in creating this special line. 16th September, here we come!
