Cuckoo first opened its doors 15 years ago, as a vintage and limited-edition boutique, on the rural converted farm site at Burwash Manor, Barton. Four years later, owners Michelle and Kate, went on to open their second store in bustling St Mary’s Passage in the centre of Cambridge, and both shops are now well known for their selection of clothing, footwear, gifts and accessories as well as multiple award-winning customer service.
Michelle and Kate are inspired by art, design, colour and texture and Cuckoo’s customers have come to expect the clothing to reflect this passion. The carefully curated selection is designed to appeal to women of any age looking for clothes that combine unusual prints and beautiful textiles with longevity, wearability and a mixture of price points. And because they buy in relatively small numbers you can be sure that what you get will be special and unique.
As Cuckoo has evolved, the owners are increasingly keen to put sustainability at the heart of everything they do, both in terms of the fabrics they buy and by adopting retail practices that promote a lower carbon footprint. With 7 children between them, Michelle and Kate are only too aware of the environmental crisis future generations are facing and feel strongly that any little changes they can make in fashion retail can only help and with that in mind they are aiming to phase out all polyester from all their clothing.
Should you be searching for the perfect gift for a loved one, colleague or friend be sure to include Cuckoo on your list. It is highly unlikely that you will leave empty handed as there are plenty of wonderful gift ideas all at competitive prices.
