The most essential value to White Bird is to create lasting and intimate collaborations with free-spirited and talented designers. Many of them have been here since the beginning, and every new alliance must presage a lasting agreement. The cornerstones of the project are, therefore, not the stones themselves, precious though they are, but those who work them, solitary or in small workshops.
The hand that makes is identical to the hand that receives. It is with the same attention and the same warmth that we weave relations with our customers. At the arrival of each visitor, in-shop or online, we deploy a service that is simple and irreproachable, based on the transmission of our knowledge and our passion.
For each precious object, a box ... or three. Our three boutiques, on the first “arrondissement”, Le Marais and most recently in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, meet the same need to be unique, original, and warm without departing from the deep pleasure of being simple. The materials of which they are built - lime, wood, brass, felt, wicker - accompany the vintage and artisanal furniture adopted, like our jewels, for its soul.
Not content to remain true only to our human and creative values, we believe it is also crucial to produce the jewelry we love in a sustainable and responsible way. By choosing to surround ourselves with designers who work mainly by hand, in small workshops, we significantly reduce the production stages and, at the same time, the environmental impact. Beyond these constraints, we are also attentive to the interest of our designers in the environmental, societal, and ethical issues related to our profession. For each jewel, we make sure that the materials used come from sustainable sources and that they have not undergone any treatment. Full of faithful respect for the sovereign brilliance of the diamond, we are constantly seeking to arouse the interest of designers and customers for stones and materials that are little used, yet filled with rich interior qualities. All that glitters is not gold...
Of course, the special attention we pay to our jewelers extends to all our partners. To stay close to all those who contribute to our history, we prioritize the company of human-sized structures, small businesses, start-ups, or micro-entrepreneurs. With them, every day, we establish a personalized relationship and a collegial work based on trust, respect, and sharing of common values.
White Bird is no exception to the desire to create eco-friendly jewelry for its own collection. In order to make high-quality parts accessible to as many people as possible, we produce in a French company in Thailand, where mercury and cyanide gold mining is totally prohibited. The respect we owe to our planet is matched only by the respect we owe to women and men. The staff at the workshops are all Thai, and we have ensured that the working conditions on site are in line with our values. In fact, our supplier gives all its employees access to social security and promotes their development and human interaction through an annual trip to different regions of the country. We also make several visits a year to the craftsmen, for the development of our models. We want to redouble these efforts and multiply the opportunities to work in this way so that the small treasures that adorn us exhaust neither the hands which create them nor the great treasures of the Earth.
WE GIVE COLLAB
In 2020, WHITE bIRD participated in a series of auctions organized by the association WE GIVE COLLAB via Instagram. By offering a piece of jewellery up for auction, the first one raised funds to support caregivers during the first COVID sanitary crisis. Other auctions followed for associations such as La Maison des Femmes, Entourage, and Info-endométriose.
A generous endeavour that brought WHITE bIRD to a public united for the good cause.
WHITE bIRD 10 years anniversary
Founded in November 2010, WHITE bIRD’s first decade was celebrated by ten iconic designers who have created exclusive jewellery pieces that were sold in our three stores in Paris and on the website. The profits (around 7 000 €) from these sales were donated to the WECF (Women Engage for a Common Future) association. This international network of women's and environmental organizations supports the activities of women's argan cooperatives in southern Morocco with donations from companies chosen for their values. Their ancestral work is part of the United Nations world heritage.
The choice of this association resonates with Stephanie's values. The cause of women, their autonomy, craftsmanship and the wish for a better world are the cornerstones of her professional adventure. The WHITE bIRD ‘s donation has helped to finance a local solar equipment chain, which will be used to roast argan fines and thus empower the women of this rural region.
