Ukuleles are beloved by travelers and artists for their compact, easily transportable frame that packs a surprisingly loud sound. Blackbird Guitars took the small and simple instrument to the next level by introducing the world’s first flax-fiber string instrument.

The Blackbird Clara Ukulele was also the recent recipient for the 2014 Industrial Designers Society of America IDEA product design award.
