About


KdBird,  a small line of vintage inspired children's accessories, was developed after the birth of my daughter Grace.  I, Kate Robin, design, knit and sew while she sleeps.

My artist husband, daughter and myself live and create in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, quite literally on the shores of the Puget Sound in a historic beach community, built on pilings above the water, called Salmon Beach.  We walk up and down 200 stairs to reach our homes and heat with drift wood harvested from the sound.

All of kdBird products are handmade.  Artisan, hand dyed, yarns and textiles are purchased in limited quantities, ensuring that your item is unique and product line is ever changing.  

Pinafores are made with season fabrics and naturally dyed linen and cotton.   Natural dyes used include: indigo, quebracho, avocado, madder, and foraged plants.  

Liberty of London Tana Lawn is 100% ultrafine cotton and finshed without using crease-resisting chemicals or irritating allergens. Many of Liberty's prints are seasonal and limited edition.  I choose to purchase small quatities of many prints, this way I can offer a vast selection.
