The Birdie Fortescue brand is based on a rich heritage of global inspiration interpreted into a range of textiles and interior accessories designed to suit classic contemporary living. Our look is about achievable style with an emphasis on clean lines and curated colour.
Birdie's background as an interior designer and antique dealer led to the opening of her first shop in Burnham Market in 2014. From here the business has grown and developed into a design-led lifestyle brand combining home accessories, antique furniture and contemporary art as a simple, cohesive look.
India is at the heart of our collections, providing the initial inspiration for every colour, pattern and technique. From Jaipur to Moradabad and Firozabad, Birdie works with highly skilled artisans using traditional dyeing, metalwork, glass blowing and carving methods.
The subtle colours of the textiles reflect the authentic natural vegetable dyes of Rajasthan. The borders and patterns in the textiles are hand block printed to Birdie’s designs. Minor irregularities in the printing and colours only add to the charm of this ancient technique.
