About

Burdy started out of a need for a creative outlet while going about a busy life, full of babies, and toddlers. It was a need that was met by making fun things to dress mamas and babies in. Adding sanity to a somewhat insane time of life.

Over the years it has grown beyond imagination. What started as simple applique baby clothes for friends, has turned into women's dresses, the essential hoodies, tee's, skirts, pants and anything else we find and fall in love with.

We start with high quality garments made by innovative American companies such as American Apparel, or Alternative Earth. We choose our colors carefully, and hand-dye our garments, to create the color palette burdy is known for.
We then Create and cut unique designs from eco-spun felt or recycled material, layering the pieces to add interest…

We then Create and cut unique designs from eco-spun felt or recycled material, layering the pieces to add interest and

detail, always trying to push further and innovate. Using a sewing machine we applique on our designs adding artistic detail to each piece. Making garments as unique as the ones that wear it.

About the Process:
I hand dye in small batches to get some great colors, which also adds to the uniqueness of each piece, no two will ever be the same.

I use a polyester ecospun felt, made of 100% recycled post-consumer plastic bottles (how cool is that) for my appliques and basically draw on the shirts with my sewing machine, I use a contrasting embroidery thread to add great detail.

All screenprinting is hand done and all ideas come from my crafty hands and head to yours, no assembly line in this house, each one is a piece of art.... It feels good to make a piece of clothing as unique as the little ones that will wear it... check us out at burdyflyaway.blogspot.com...

Care Instructions.. .
Everything is machine washable.

The dye on all shirts has been set and pre-washed, so no need to worry about color bleeding, like any clothing just wash with like colors.

The felt will not bleed any color. It may pill up slightly, if you are picky about it you can wash items inside out, this will help avoid pilling, also avoid washing with linty things like towels, or sweatshirts. This will keep the lovely designs looking lovely for years to come!
