Jodi Gibbs, founder, creator and mother of Bird & Kite was a child born to be wild. Raised in the Australian bushland of the Wattagan ranges, by a family of artists, idealists and creatives, she was surrounded by all things handcrafted. From her bushrock home to her hand knitted clothing, every part of her upbringing was inspired by a keen sense of aesthetic. It was a natural consequence she would devote her life to design.
Jodi’s unique upbringing led her to stamp out her own path in life. Jodi was a renegade, bypassing the traditional avenues for emerging designers. Instead, Jodi followed her own natural instincts in honing her eclectic style and carving out her own design identity. In 2009 her adventures led her to Bali. It was in this cultural hotbed of creative entrepreneurs that the first seeds were sewn.
Bird & Kite was born.
Jodi’s innate, rebellious spirit, her insistence upon quality in all aspects of life, her appreciation for the natural world and her fascination with vintage bohemia, remain a constant influence. To this day Bird & Kite is designed to make women feel beautiful. Natural textiles that kiss the skin, hand embroidery, woven embellishments, screen-printed fabrics and traditional dyeing techniques define the Bird & Kite aesthetic.
Jodi continues to live her life by bespoke. She now resides in the tropical Island of Bali. She spends her days soaking in the colour and vibrancy of the Balinese artisan culture, eating lots of papaya and creating beautiful designs.
In Bird & Kite, Jodi shares with you a little piece of the ideals she holds precious in each garment: a little piece of her world in each stitch.
Pieces to adore.
