Where are we based?
Furious Goose HQ can be found at the OXO Tower Wharf in central London.
The OXO is a cultural landmark offering galleries, restaurants, cafés, and a curated collection of shops that are also working studios where shoppers can meet the artists. All with river views!
So if you're in London it's well worth popping down to the South Bank to pick up a unique gift and have a chat with us creatives.
The OXO Tower is right next to Blackfriars Bridge so you can really make a day of it and also visit the Tate Modern, Shakespear's Globe, The South Bank Centre and all that the Thames has to offer.
Where do you manufacture?
We design here in London and we manufacture across the UK. It's very important for us to be made in Britain for several reasons. First and foremost is British Quality. The traditional textile industry in the UK offers some of the best artisans in the world and we are also known for innovation and new technologies. Making here also gives us more transparency over our supply chain. All the people we employ are paid a non-exploitative wage and work in good conditions. Many of them are fellow textile artists and we know a lot of them by name. This might make our prices a bit higher but we think that's worth it in the long run. There are also environmental benefits to making locally including reduced shipping and sampling costs.
What about the artist?
Patrick Morrison is a trained artist who specialised in Fine Art Printmaking including screen print, woodcut and etching. After university he moved into graphic design where he honed his skills in digital illustration and colour. Since then he has studied digital print on fabric at Central St Martins in London and fused fine art and graphic design into the unique signature style that is Furious Goose. We like to think of it as the same journey a butterfly makes. A creative splurge as a student before the chrysalis of a career in graphic design where he honed his professional design skills and colour awareness, before emerging onto the scene as a fully fledged artist.
