How can we help?


About Rare Birds

How do your clothes cater to the needs of neurodivergent individuals?

At Rare Birds, we take pride in creating clothes that are truly special. Our garments stand out from the crowd due to a combination of carefully selected fabrics, sensory-friendly design, and innovative elements.

Firstly, we believe that the right fabric can make all the difference in terms of comfort and quality. That's why we have meticulously chosen four Signature fabrics - FlexSoft, ThermoSoft, CloudComfort, SnugLite - that form the foundation of our clothing line. Each fabric serves a specific purpose, catering to different needs and preferences.

In addition to our premium fabrics, we pay special attention to the design of our clothes. We understand that sensory-friendly clothing is essential for individuals with sensory sensitivities. That's why our designs incorporate features that prioritise comfort, such as seamless construction, tagless labels, and soft, non-irritating materials. We want everyone to feel at ease and confident in our clothing.

Furthermore, we love to innovate. That's why we've introduced elements like magnetic zips, making dressing and undressing effortless and hassle-free. Our commitment to incorporating smart and practical features sets us apart from the rest.

Are your products designed by individuals that are neurodivergent?

At Rare Birds, we believe in the power of collaboration and inclusivity. Our dedicated team consists of both neurotypical and neurodivergent individuals who work hand in hand to design our clothing.

We understand the importance of creating garments that meet the specific needs of the neurodivergent community. That's why we actively involve individuals from the neurodivergent community at every stage of our design process. Their valuable insights and perspectives help us develop clothing that is not only stylish and functional but also addresses the unique sensory sensitivities and preferences of neurodivergent individuals.

In addition to working closely with the neurodivergent community, we conduct our own continuous research to stay informed about the evolving needs and challenges faced by individuals with diverse neurological profiles. This allows us to incorporate the latest findings and innovations into our clothing designs, ensuring that they remain relevant and supportive.

By fostering a collaborative environment and embracing diversity within our team, we are committed to creating clothing that celebrates neurodivergent individuals and provides them with the comfort, functionality, and style they deserve.

What are your environmental commitments?

At Rare Birds, we are deeply committed to making sustainable choices in every aspect of our clothing production. We understand the importance of minimising our impact on the environment and strive to lead by example. Here are some key examples of our environmental commitments:

  • Durability for Longevity: One of the most effective ways to reduce the environmental impact of clothing is by ensuring durability. We design our clothes to be long-lasting, using high-quality materials and meticulous craftsmanship. By creating garments that stand the test of time, we encourage you to wear them longer, reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimising the stress associated with finding new clothes.
  • Eco-Friendly Fabrics: We carefully select fabrics that are not only gentle on your skin but also eco-friendly. We prioritise the use of sustainable materials, such as organic cotton and bamboo. These fabrics are grown using methods that minimise the use of harmful chemicals and promote soil health, ensuring a reduced environmental footprint throughout their lifecycle.
  • Responsible Manufacturing Practices: We partner with manufacturers who share our commitment to sustainability. Our production processes adhere to strict environmental standards, including efficient energy and water usage, waste reduction, and responsible disposal practices. By working closely with our manufacturing partners, we ensure that our clothes are produced in a manner that aligns with our eco-conscious values.
  • Continuous Improvement: We understand that sustainability is an ongoing journey, and we constantly seek opportunities for improvement. We stay informed about the latest advancements in eco-friendly technologies and materials, regularly evaluating and updating our practices to reduce our environmental impact further. We believe in transparency and will continue to share our progress with you, keeping you informed about our efforts and initiatives.

By choosing Rare Birds, you can be confident that you are supporting a brand dedicated to making sustainable choices. We are committed to preserving the environment for future generations while providing you with stylish and durable clothing that you can feel good about wearing.
