Nancybird originated in 2002, with founder Emily Wright creating a small range of bags & purses in her backyard studio, as a side project to her fine arts degree.
As they have grown, Nancybird looked further afield, connecting with expert makers & Australian artists to realise their designs.
They have created a community of artisans from China, India, & Korea (& occasionally countries such as Bolivia & Latvia!), whose expertise has allowed them to broaden into apparel, footwear & recently into homewares.
Nancybird believe that big change is best effected through a series of small, mindfully made decisions, & are consistently guided by the simple principles of good making & good design.
Most importantly Nancybird are always considerate of the social & environmental impact of their products, the longevity of the material, the design choices, & how the final product will be used.
Nancybird like us at Dalcheri are passionate about a slower, more considered approach to fashion: one where quality & integrity can provide an antidote to the negative impacts of short-lived trends & fast fashion.
A collaboration with amazing Australian artists over the last few seasons has resulted in the creation of fabrics & designs that are literally a work of art that will showcase in your wardrobe for years to come.
They are continually learning, exploring & refining to make their products, & practices, the best that they can be.
SO THIS IS WHY we love to support this amazing Melbourne based Australian Designer!
