#intheknow

In the know is an unfiltered look at our company, pricing, sourcing, manufacturing, and desire for an open line of communication with our customers. We’ve partnered with amazing factories around the world and we’re proud to share their stories with you. We’re continually working to provide the most high quality and safe product at accessible prices and margins that are fair to you.

#INTHEKNOW is about spreading a message that extends beyond just our products.

Sourcing

We’ve spent years finding the best factories around the world. We visit and check in with them often to build strong personal relationships with the owners to verify our common goals and standards for sustainability and working conditions. They know that we ask hard questions and they respect us for that. Each shares a dedication with us to produce fabrics using the highest environmentally friendly process. We have a mutual love for linen and it’s reputation for being one of the worlds most sustainable textiles.


Manufacturing

From the first WildBird sling stitched at home with care, we knew we wanted to continue that tradition of pouring love into every sling we make. Today we are proud to say that every sling is still hand made with care and attention. We currently employ 45+ professional seamstresses, mostly mothers, to skillfully make each sling in the comfort of their homes. And while this unconventional production process isn't as quick & easy as mass manufacturing would be, for us it has always been about more than just a product. It brings us so much joy knowing that every one of your slings makes a wider, lasting impact.

Our number one priority is the safety of your bird in your sling. Our slings are compliant and tested with The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

We sacrifice speed for precision and pay a premium for talented sewers that have years of professional experience. When wearing your baby in the sling, you can appreciate the craftsmanship that went into making it.

Our Seamstresses

  • Proudly own and operate their own business and are paid above-average wages
  • Work in dedicated sewing areas that are safe and clean
  • Undergo several weeks of skill verification and oversight before sewing for WildBird
  • Pass their work through a quality control specialist

Price

It’s our ethos to provide a product for parents and caregivers that does not include a large and unnecessary markup. From materials to transportation, we choose to reveal the costs behind our products because we’re proud of the fair markup that we offer.

We’re continually working to keep our prices accessible and our margins below the industry average while still providing the highest quality product. We aim to make the best quality, safest carrier from the highest grade of linen as accessible as possible, and we work hard to make our prices reflect that.
