Language Of The Birds

Language of the Birds is a print based brand founded in Honolulu Hawaiʻi. Our studio is a barn in Upstate NY. We are slow fashion. Fabrics are silk screened in the US. Sustainability and aloha are the heart of our manufacturing approach. We design our own prints.

The inspiration behind the label’s creation emerged when New York native Tsia Carson travelled to Hawai‘i a few years ago. Not only did the visit spark a deep affection for the islands, and necessitated a move to Honolulu for a number of years, but it also recast all the garments she’d love to wear—mu‘umu‘u, kappogi pants, holokū—in a new perspective. Equally thoughtful in scope, production is deliberately done in small batches—ethically and sustainably with trustworthy partners and collaborators. The result: Clothes that can be worn and appreciated for years to come.
