Our Mission

About Us

BirdieBlue is an outdoor adventure brand committed to generating joy and protecting our #birdiebluedays by turning old, discarded ski clothes into personality filled, and sustainably created accessories....and keeping as many clothes out of landfills along the way.

Our Story

How it Started

It all started with a ripped pair of beloved ski pants. There was no amount of duck tape that could save these babies. Refusing to toss them in the garbage, Kate’s wheels started turning. Could there be a way to make something NEW from something OLD?

And after three years of product development, sewing partner testing, and refining and perfecting as sustainable and transparent a production process as possible... BirdieBlue was born.
