Key Benefits :
Indonesia-based design studio SUNBIRD crafts sustainable outerwear and accessories with the help of women artisans based in Bangladesh and Indonesia focusing on women empowerment projects. All pieces are reversible and made from upcycled materials.
Production Description :
Sunbird takes preloved sari materials and parcels them together layering with more cotton saris and using hand embroidery to hold it all together. Each of the pieces is one of a kind. We take old pieces from our stock that we love in two different colorways, and disassemble and reconstruct them.
Environmental Considerations :
Using only upcycled and repurposed materials Sunbird is diligent in making sure nothing it puts out there is without purpose. If it's not repurposed, it has other elements: supporting craftsmanship, upcycling preloved vintage saris, or supporting women artisans.

Story : Whilst raising funds for a women’s shelter for displaced women in Bangladesh Samira (co-founder/designer of Sunbird) came across women who were making throws (Kathas) while going through therapy. The idea of Sunbird as a social enterprise came about through candid conversations around the fate of the Kathas made. For Samira, these colorful vibrant Kathas ensued hope! and a realization soon set in that fair wage employment for these women artisans would be more beneficial in the long run than relying on charity. Sunbird was launched to fulfill its lofty ambition: making ethical outerwear and supporting women artisans.
