nancybird's new season

In addition to our current jewellery sale, for the next two weeks we will be having a 20% reduction on all Spring/Summer Nancybird stock (cash sales only).

Even more exciting than that is the new Autumn/Winter which landed on my doorstep this morning. Glory, its totally gorgeous.

This seasons range is inspired by the warm layered texture and colours of Autumn. Fabrics are all hand printed in Melbourne, using upholstory grade cotton from small Sri Lankan fair trade textile mill, running since 1958. The fabric has been completely hand made by women local to the area. All dyes and inks used are non-toxic and water based.

The leathers used are a combination of soft vegetable tanned Italian sheep hide, and embossed cow leather, all custom made just for this seasons collection. Vegetable tanning has a lower environmental impact than other tanning processes and produces a high quality soft feel leather.
