The story of Gipsy Parrot
Gipsy Parrot originated from Annas maternity leave, from her own need for beautiful and practical breastfeeding clothes.
Behind Gipsy Parrot is Anna, a 37-year-old mother from Turku, whose family has been in Tallinn a lot since 2011 due to her husbands work.
When her first daughter was born in January 2017, Anna traveled a lot between Turku-Tallinn homes, visited the village, the city and cafés. Breastfeeding clothes could not be found suitable for just about anything, and so Anna decided to design one herself.
"I walked around Tallinn with my baby, looking for a sewing shop that would make a shirt for me."
A sewing shop was found and proto began to be made. I also had to look for a fabric, and finally I found a suitable Oeko-tex 100 certified, 100% cotton beautiful timeless checkered fabric from the Netherlands (the eco-tex certificate guarantees that the product is free of harmful pesticide, heavy metal or formaldehyde residues).
Through many bends, the first batch of Mama Bird breastfeeding shirts was completed in December 2018. This small sewing shop is in Tallinn, only five tram stops from home, and there are really lovely people, the service and the quality of work is beautiful and clean.
"I transported the first sets of fabrics in wagons walking from home to the sewing shop, it seems to have a hundred meters of fabric."
When the product development and manufacturing of the shirt took time, Anna started sewing hair bows for her own girl and selling them to friends as well. Quickly through Instagram in January 2019, customers found bows and were already in a hurry to set up an online store.
The online store opened on 16.02.2019.
"Immediately after the first month, all the work alone felt very challenging, I was also home with a two-year-old at the same time. I got overwhelmed with my sister's help, and together we immediately grew a selection of small skirts and collars."
The dream is to increase the selection to more breastfeeding and children's clothing for the future.
Gipsyparrot's products are made partly in Turku and partly in Tallinn, and the warehouse is currently located in Turku.
We also dream that we could employ, for example seamstresses some day.
