How the Co-founders of Birdies Conquered Manufacturing

If you're all about them dinner parties but also all about them yoga pants and slippers, then you need to know about Birdies: the most comfortable, fashionable house slippers on the market.

As a former Global Marketing Solutions leader at Facebook and group VP of strategy at Ross Stores, there's no doubt that California girls Bianca Gates and Marisa Sharkey have some serious business chops. But like so many others, they went through the trials and tribulations of figuring out the manufacturing and sourcing processes for their products, wearing dozens of hats as business owners and, of course, being patient while their company grew. 

Today, we're getting into the nitty gritty about how they approached the manufacturing world, the first steps to making their business concept a reality, and how they plan to expand their team.

Birdies House SlippersWhen I get home, the first thing I want to do is kick off my shoes and put on slippers. The only problem is that our dining table is outside on our patio, so I need to use slippers that have a sturdy rubber sole so I can walk outside in them. When I came across these house slippers, I loved that they not only had the rubber sole and are extremely comfortable and cozy, but look like “real” shoes. I’ve definitely considered wearing them to work on chilly days.
