The Makers

 

The Apron That Actually Fits

Bird has been making high quality kitchen clothing since 2019. Currently our outstanding aprons are handmade across two different sites in the UK.


Makers HQ, Plymouth

We develop our aprons and create our limited drop ranges at Makers HQ, a social enterprise in Plymouth, based in the former Jaegar factory. Makers HQ was founded in collaboration with Plymouth College of Art, Millfields Trust and the Stonehouse community to reignite fashion and textiles manufacturing.

Find out more about Makers HQ over on their website.


Yarmouth Stores, Great Yarmouth

Yarmouth Stores make our denim Robyn aprons and are a seventh generation family-owned business. The factory is based on the quayside in Great Yarmouth, overlooking the River Yare, manufacturing garments to last a lifetime and improve with age. Here at Bird Kitchen Clothing, we couldn’t be happier to have our aprons made on their watch.


The Finishing Touches

Our brass eyelets are made by a small plant in Tipton that has been operating for nearly 150 years, and our fabric labels are made by a family firm in Pembrokeshire. 

The brass eyelets on your Wren dungarees and limited edition Robyn aprons are then hand-applied in my kitchen at home in Wales.
