Organic Cotton Stretch Denim Wrens


Latest addition to Bird.

Batch #2 coming soon. Available in limited release only.  Sign up to Birdfeed newsletter to be the first to preorder your Wrens this Autumn.

Dungarees cut from medium weight, indigo-dyed, organic stretch denim.  Easy fit for every day use, the Wren dungarees are as happy in the kitchen as they are in the garden. And everywhere in between.

Attention to detail is key: deep pockets for hands and phones, tailored bib cut for our feminine form and adjustable neck strap in homage to the original Robyn apron.

Those beautiful buttons? They’re crafted from spent mussel shells.

The back strap loop? Elasticated so you can squat, bend and move with ease.

The iconic red Bird label? Yup, still there.

And plenty of well thought out pockets, just as you asked.

“I love the brass eyelet details on the Wrens. The lack of buckles is refreshing because they can often feel too clunky and even dig in at your shoulders. I love the pockets on the back, which is very Carpenter style and always flattering for a ladies bum.”    Michelle Lee, York

The Wren dungarees are made in Plymouth by Makers HQ, a social enterprise housed in the former Jaeger factory, established to reignite fashion and textiles manufacturing in the UK.  See our Makers Page for more details.

Indigo dye is initially very deep and the denim will fade a little with each wash to give a comfortable appearance. The flip side is that there may be some colour rub when new – so please keep your new denim Wrens away from light coloured fabric and upholstery.

To keep your denim looking good it is best to wash inside out and to not use fabric softener. Always follow the washing instructions and do stick to a cool wash.

You'll find the garment measurements 


These are the dimensions for the dungarees themselves, rather than the body that they're designed to fit. The joy of the Wrens is in the loose cut - they are so darn comfy. A good idea is to compare the measurements to a similar, much loved garment you already have to get a real life comparison.

For reference, here I am on Instagram wearing the denim Medium Wrens Medium. I'm a UK size 10 so a Medium is a pretty good fit for me with plenty of room to move. Drop me a line if you could do extra advice on sizing.

Why Pre-order?

Here at Bird, we’re sustainably minded and by cutting to order, we minimise waste and give landfill the swerve. How exciting is it to know that your pair of Wren dungarees has been cut especially for you?

Slow Food. Slow Fashion. Same values.

Happy Wrens

I absolutely love my wrens they are so comfortable. Vicky was lovely and added my little gardeners tab to hold my trowel. They are the perfect fit and a joy to wear and perfect to wear to visit my garden clients. Thank you Bird

Here at Bird we care for the environment and encourage you to too

Our aprons and the environment are happier when they're washed on a cool wash

We recommend hanging our aprons on the line, rather than tumble drying
