The Flock's Profile
Welcome to the Flock, a range of hand embroidered bird toys based on endangered birds from Australia and the Philippines.
Flock was designed to develop an awareness of endangered species in a fun and desirable way, while supporting craft practitioners to use their traditional skills and heritage to earn a livelihood.
The Flock is designed in Australia by TheFlockDesign and made by hand by Pinagkaisang Magbuburda ng Lumban, a group of disadvantaged embroiderers in Laguna, The Philippines, using scraps of recycled fabrics, minimising waste and making use of locally available materials.
Flock was developed and prototyped through Omnium Outreach Projects www.omnium.net.au/oop/
