Birds of Nature is born out of passion for authentic, beautiful and durable items
with a unique character. The collection balances fine, natural, high quality
materials with carefully thought-out design and attention to detail.
The Birds of Nature team is led by Ilse and Mijke, two creative women
with a background in Branding and Fashion Design in Germany and the Netherlands.
They embarked on this adventure with their love for great design, materials and style
based on an earthy colour palette – not screaming but softly putting an accent.
Birds of Nature believes in the spirit of true craftsmanship;
ethically made and fairly traded products. To ensure the quality of the collection,
Ilse and Mijke personally traveled to Portugal to source the best materials
and to ensure the quality of their products. During this trip they developed
a partnership with a manufacturer specialized in producing leather shoes for kids.
Together they started the production journey which resulted in the launch of the first
produced collection of booties for kids up to the age of 2 in September 2016.
Birds of Nature shoes are hand-made in Portugal with the greatest care and
manufactured under fair working conditions and with respect for everyone involved.
The leather is hand-picked and tanned in Portugal and meets the EU standards.
To guarantee a high quality and honest product for the costumer, Ilse and Mijke
keep in close contact with the manufacturer and are involved
in every step of the production.
