My First Birds creates hand silkscreened home items made to be used, worn, washed, loved, used, washed again and worn again. These are items to use in your every day life. Whether in the kitchen, in the garden, in the studio, cleaning up, or lying down, these items will work with you. 

Everything is made of 100% cotton and decorated with designs drawn by me, artist and owner Emily Browne. 

This all started in 2013 when I got my first brood of chickens. My First Birds was originally a journal of the chicks first days, the building of their first coop and the transition of the tiny yard into an urban farm. Now there are a few more birds, a new house, two cats and two dogs (yikes). 

Everything has a story. The drawings really are of my chickens - each with its own personality. Eleanor pecks at my legs to get attention and goes after shiny jewelry, Ginger flies up on my shoulders to get away from bullies, Vera is calm and aloof but always sticks close. 

The herbs are ones I often use in my garden and kitchen. Each represent something special and inhabit a great deal of real estate out by my patio.

I hope you love these items and drawings as much as I do. 

Thank you for visiting My First Birds.
