Every Saturday I am featuring a different small business, getting to know a little more about the business and the people behind the brands! This week I interview the lovely Elisha from Rhubarb The Bird.
I hope that by reading this interview you may find another small business to support or if you're interested in maybe starting your own business, you may find some inspiration here too...
Hi I’m Elisha the creator behind Rhubarb the Bird. Pre-covid I spent my days working part time, whilst being a mum to three Rhubarbettes. My evenings and free time are spent designing and making.
Rhubarb the Bird was born shortly after our third daughter. Being a mum to three beautiful girls they are my inspiration, models and testers for all my beautiful products. I really felt the need for quality and uniqueness by only having a selection of products made using the same material. My little aim is adding style that can be lovingly worn and passed down.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Anything chocolate oh and cream, I have such a sweet tooth.
What makes your business a little different from the rest?
All my collections are handmade by me using Organic or Oeko-tex standard 100 fabric, I only make a handful of products in any one fabric making the products you buy unique. I like to think the variety of products I make are suitable for women and children.
What TV show could you happily lose a day bingeing on?
You will always catch me binging on a good soap, I am a sucker for Home and Away. (Blue sea, white sand - gets me every time) and anything murder mystery. Ive always got a series on record on Sky.
What is an absolute non-negotiable in your day?
My family, they come first. My girls are my number one priority
What topic would you speak about if you were asked to give a TED talk on something outside of your main area of expertise?
I LOVE houses and anything interior design, you will find me on Rightmove daily.
Tell us one thing about your business that you are most proud of?
For me, it’s been continuing my little dream and juggling mum life and working. I’m proud that I have found that happy medium and have wonderful customers and family who have supported me along the way.
