Today i would like to introduce you more to Rubarb The Bird …
Where are you based ? ..
All my products are made with love from my home in the Norfolk countryside
How did your business come about ?
Until fourteen months ago I was working in distribution before going on maternity leave. My dream, however, has always been to be my own boss and I thought there was no better time to take that step. Since January 2018 it has been a whirlwind of activities including designing the website, researching products and learning all about how business actually works.
How did you come up with the business name ?
I wanted a name that had meaning and was personal. Then one evening, after struggling to think of a name for weeks, craving a snack (lightbulb moment) that was it, Rhubarb the Bird was created. Through three of my pregnancies I craved Rhubarb and Custard sweets – I just couldn’t get enough! “Bird”… This is thanks to my Dad. Whenever my children would get upset he would distract them by searching for birdies in the garden. Even now, before my daughter goes to sleep, we have to say goodnight to the birds.
Tell us a bit about your products
All my products are handmade by me at my Norfolk countryside home. Each item is unique, whereby only a handful of products are made using the same material, therefore you will not be bumping into someone who has the same hair accessory. We use organic fabric in all our products, which is sourced from small British businesses. Our products are available from newborn right up to adult sizes.
Which of your products is your favourite?
Each of my products is something I would happily dress my children or myself in. My range is ever growing, so maybe I will find a new favourite soon!!
