Introducing our pimped Paisley hand printed greetings card.  

A Paisley pattern usually features flowers, foliage and sometimes the occasional animal. In a unique Furious Goose culture clash, we've placed humanity at the centre of the leaf shaped boteh in the form of a classical nude. 

✓ Hand-printed in London with a risography machine

✓ A6, 280gsm Lambeth Cartridge Paper

✓ Blank inside

✓ Coloured seal and peel envelope

 

  • Free UK shipping – Worldwide over £250

Risograph printing is a wonderfully tactile method of creating art. It's worth a whole blog article but essentially it is a unique machine a bit like an exotic photocopier that uses rice paper to create print screens. These misalign quite often creating the beautiful hand-printed effect. It also allows for wonderful inks such as the fluorescent pink that we've used in these cards. Because it's risography please be aware that no two cards are the same and some of them have areas of distressed tone. All part of the charm!

The Paisley print has its origins in Persia and Kashmir, known for their rich textile traditions. It features a stylised floral motif known as the boteh that represents the abundance of nature. The shawls and scarves that featured this woven pattern became insanely popular in the 18th and 19th centuries.

With the advent of the industrial textile revolution the design was "borrowed" and brought to the United Kingdom and manufactured in Paisley, Scotland. Local weavers and manufacturers replicated the designs and, using the new technologies available to them, added colour and detail, giving rise to its association with the town.

In the 1960s, the Paisley print took on a new significance as it became a symbol of the counterculture and the sexual revolution. Embraced by musicians and fashion icons, it represented rebellion and gender fluidity. In our latest collection, we've introduced a unique twist. By incorporating classical nude sculptures into the Paisley pattern, we aim to challenge the traditional boundaries that separate mankind from nature.

Placing the human figure within the traditional motifs represents the fundamental connection between humanity and the natural world. We are, after all, and for better or for worse, part of intricate tapestry of nature.

We've used a paired back palette of three colours for each of the colourways. The pink is a fluorescent ink which is super exciting and really pops!

Testimonials

★★★★★

Love the bright, beautiful patterns with the added bonus of being British made. Bought a pocket square previously and then a tie for male relatives. Very impressed with how quickly the items were packaged and despatched. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for something a bit different.

I recently buy a pocket square from the collection "Enchanted Forest". Both materials and design are absolutely outstanding. The silk is soft and heavy-enough to give a nice drape. Colours are brilliant, and the printing of the design was fantastically executed in both sides of the piece. Fully recommended!
