In September 2014 our Flybird journey began. Flybird, like many great things, started out as an idea. Quickly, we (Rachel and Julianna) knew we needed to make this idea a reality, so we got to work.
We immediately knew we wanted our brand to have a relation to birds. We both had a unique connection to birds that we wanted our company to resemble. Julianna's being connected to her late mother, and Rachel's connected to the symbolism of the freedom of having wings and soaring high.
Flybird stands for the good in the world. To be a light, show kindness, choose happiness and be uplifting for yourself and those around you. Our hope is that our company shows you that, when you purchase a tee it is more than "just a tee". We knew we wanted to always give comfortable pieces that could be worn dressed up or down. Clothing that help you feel confident, beautiful and positive through your everyday moments.
Soon after we launched and much to our surprise, our starting days were busy and growing fast! We knew we needed to continually set ourselves apart. At that time, we had an idea to create our own sleeved tees but we did not have the capability or the means we needed to create it. The original idea of adding patterned sleeves to a shirt kept coming to mind. We prayed for the help to find the resources needed to make this part of our design become a reality. That was the start of it all. The miracle behind the story is everything kept falling into place.
Nearly everyday we see miracles within our brand. It has strengthened us in ways we can’t describe! The growth of Flybird Apparel and the helping hands along the way is truly an amazing thing to be apart of. And we have YOU to thank. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Thank you for helping our company become something greater than we could've possibly imagined. We are truly humbled to see all of you wearing Flybird. Thank you for being a light in this world!
We hope to connect more with our customers and share more about our lives, personal struggles and beliefs along the way. In hopes to be a means of comfort and joy to you in your life. We are all equal in this fight of life!! We can all empower one another to become better than we were yesterday and RISE UP :heart:
"Stay positive. Work hard. Have faith and Make It Happen."
