In December of 2016, Ashley Mann became a full time stay at home mom to her two sons, Christian and Greyson. As a form of self care during this time, Ashley turned to sewing for herself as a hobby. She perfected her techniques for women’s clothing, studied alterations, tailoring, and pattern drafting.
Ashley developed a passion for well fitting garments and slow, ethical fashion. After feeling frustrated with the waste and ethical practices of most fashion companies, Ashley decided to found her own clothing brand. Grey Bird & Co, LLC was formed in October 2017 with one main goal and vision: to create ethical, timeless fashion and to transform it into something for every body type.
Grey Bird & Co has since expanded to include eco certified fabrics and is always looking toward the future for the most sustainable and eco friendly business practices. Many of the fabric remnants are donated to nonprofits, one in particular is a charity called Mia’s Mission. They use the fabric remnants to make clothing for NICU babies.
Currently Grey Bird & Co employs a local seamstress who sews many of the clothing pieces sold by the company and expects to expand with time. Ashley spends her work hours creating and designing new pieces, marketing, connecting with customers and providing customer service.
Ashley and her family which includes husband Kevan and two children, Christian and Greyson, reside in York County Pennsylvania. When not working, Ashley enjoys reading, hiking and bible study.
