WHAT WE DO

We’re an Outdoors Company Specialising in Technical Lifestyle Gear and Performance Workwear

Rainbird believes that the weather shouldn’t get in the way of living life, getting your job done or having fun. Whether you’re using our products to commute to work, hike your favourite trails or to stay dry on the job site, Rainbird has a specially designed product perfectly suited to the task.

Designed in Australia by our team of weatherproof experts, we combine together the three important aspects of performance, style and functionality.

Here at Rainbird, we ensure that you and your customers can have a wardrobe full of innovative products that are there to keep you warm, dry and protected – whatever the weather.

Using the latest technologies in fabrics and finishes, we rigorously test them to AUS/NZ standards to make sure they’re up to the job. That’s why we can confidently back ourselves with our 3 Year Warranty on every single product within the Rainbird range.

Every product we have is Tried, Tested and Trusted and developed specifically to deal with the unique extremes of our climate. Hot one minute, wet the next, we guarantee our collection can handle whatever weather is thrown at it.

Using breathable and durable fabrics (and telling you the specific AUS/NZ ratings these have) you can rely on us to protect you from the elements.

OUR HISTORY

Our History

Textile House has a long and rich history, growing and evolving through the years from a small local business to a well trusted and respected company trading throughout Australia and beyond.

Originally founded by Stephen Nowak in the mid 80s, Textile House became the umbrella company to Rainbird and are proud to be one of the first to pioneer bright coloured raincoats in Australia. The 90s saw Rainbird extend its range into kids wear and the introduction of the iconic STOWaway jacket. An industry leading product the STOWaway continues to be a winning jacket today not only in style but in performance and design.

Rainbird has since expanded its range, specialising in technical lifestyle gear and performance workwear for the outdoors. Through all of these changes Rainbird continues to stay true to its ethos; to deliver quality products of high performance that are made to last for years to come.
