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 award winning shops are now well known for their selection of clothing, footwear, gifts and accessories.
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 owners also believe that clothing should have longevity, wearability and offer a mixture of price points. As Cuckoo has evolved, the owners are increasingly convinced of the need to offer sustainable brands. 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 their clothing from Spring 2020.
After a successful experiment in designing their own dresses with unique prints this year, Cuckoo hopes to develop this further and are excited by the ‘made and designed in England’ credentials that this can offer the Cuckoo customer.
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.
It is easy to see why Cuckoo has become such a firm favourite in Cambridge!
