Where is Furious Goose based
All of our delectable luxury silk scarves and designer pocket squares are designed in our studio in Brighton on the sunny south coast of England. Brighton is famous for its decadence, colour and sense of rebellion so it's perfect for us.
What about manufacturing?
We design here in Brighton but we manufacture across the UK. It's very important for us to be made in Britain for more than just patriotic reasons. We like to think it's pragmatism rather than patriotism that makes us choose our manufacturers. Here are two reasons why. First of all quality control. With the best will in the world it's harder to communicate with far-flung factories than it is with closer-to-home workshops. We have a very close working relationship with all our suppliers, from our printers in Macclesfield to our hemmers in London or Ireland. Our second reason is more ethical in nature. We can guarantee that all the people we employ are paid a fair wage and don't work in dangerous conditions. This might make our prices a bit higher but we think that's worth it in the long run.
Do you have a shop?
As yet we don't have a physical store of our own. We are already dreaming up what it will look like so watch this space. All our our exquisite silks are available on our website (of course) and also at a select group of elite retailers. If you do wish to view a product before purchasing and you are near the studio then do get in touch and we can arrange it.
