Our loungewear is made using GOTS certified organic cotton. Our jersey strappy and loose tops contain a hidden support layer which is made from 95% cotton and 5% lycra. This is the only part of our range which is not 100% organic, at this point, and something that we are actively working on. It's all about supply!
Our fabrics are printed by hand or handwoven by artisans in India and all dyes are GOTS certified, AZO free, colour-fast and environmentally friendly.
We aim to support small scale artists and designers by collaborating on prints each season as well as designing in-house.
At Moonbird we are committed to producing our loungewear in an ethical and transparent way. We use a few different suppliers to produce our full range of garments. The Mehera Shaw production facility that we use in Jaipur, India is a member of the Fair Trade Federation. The Zenana Women production facility we use is based in Lucknow, India and is accredited as a Fair trader of Australia. All of our giftbags are produced by Freeset Global who are a Fair Trade certified cooperative which has a number of facilities in Kolkata, India and in Bangladesh.
Businesses go through an involved auditing process in the areas of environmental, charitable, worker and supply chain standards and financial transparency.
We are proud to be a B Corp and work with B Corp International to promote the accreditation system and we choose to collaborate with other B corps who we recognise to be aligned with our values.
There are over 1,752 B Corporations worldwide and the number is growing every week.

Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides and fertilizers. In developing countries cotton may account for 50% of total pesticide use. Accidental pesticide poisoning is common among farmers, and the cost of buying the pesticides can cause some farmers to be faced with such insurmountable debt that they take their own lives. The pesticides and fertilizers used in conventional cotton production can cause skin irritations and be carcinogenic.
We believe that in business we should respect people, planet and animals and therefore we do not use animal products in our collections.
We are working with Climate Friendly to offset our carbon emissions from freight, travel and waste. This year we are proud to be carbon neutral in Australia and we will work towards offsetting our manufacturing process over the next few years.
We have embarked on a partnership with Sydney Women's shelters:
Buy a set for you & we will give a set on your behalf…
It’s easy to be oblivious, but homelessness is a big issue. More than 1 in 2 women are turned away from crisis accommodation in Sydney EVERY night. We can’t imagine the turmoil a woman may feel as she falls into bed on her first night in a Women’s Shelter. She is likely to have arrived with no belongings, only the clothes she's wearing. We hope that we can help her feel supported & loved as she rests in bed that night in her own pair of lovingly made, organic Moonbird PJ’s.
It’s the little things & together we can make a difference.
