We're Sam and Rich. Co-founders of Goose Studios, we've been busy making organic clothing since 2016.
But what if we told you to think twice about buying our clothes?
To first look at what you already own.
To buy less, repair more and choose well.
Back in 2016, we set out to make fashion affordable for you and the planet.
We'd read a book called 'Let My People Go Surfing' by Patagonia's founder and it opened our eyes do a different way of doing business.
One that realised whenever we create or buy a product there is always an impact on the earth.
Being a "conscious consumer" was starting to become a thing, and we understood our job was to make our impact as small as possible when making, enjoying and disposing of any fashion style.
The problem was that the 'fashion' part of this solution didn't seem to be very low impact at all...
In 2016, "Sustainable Fashion" hadn't become the glossy term the fashion industry had fallen in love with yet.
It was 'alternative fashion' vs 'mainstream fashion'. Hemp ponchos vs ASOS. There seemed to be only one winner.
So we took the time to learn what a more sustainable, ethical clothing industry would look like, and how we could become part of it.
We worked for brands like Finisterre who chose to do business differently.
Organic, ethical, durable, re-worn, recycled.
We started to create a brand that was human, easy going and not afraid to occasionally tell it like it is!
Sourcing reasonably priced organic cotton basics that could be worn by everyone, everyday, for years to come.
Not the cheapest, not the most expensive. But offering great value for years of use at a lower impact.
We came up with a simple mantra for our business -
"Good Times, Organically Sourced"
Wear great clothes, have some fun and help save the planet. Simple.
We only use 100% GOTS certified organic cotton fabrics.
Our packaging is biodegradable and recyclable at kerbside.
Our suppliers are members of the Fairwear foundation - ensuring the development of worker rights.
We're even PETA-approved Vegan brand.
But that's not to say we don't still have an impact on the planet. Every time we choose to buy something new it's a use of resources.
So when you buy from Goose Studios make sure it's because you really do need a new t-shirt or sweatshirt.
If that old sweatshirt you really loved is beyond repair, then we'd love you to buy one of our super-soft organic cotton styles!
We know ours will last you for years to come. It's why we sweat the details.
But when you shop, anywhere, keep 4 words in mind. Buy less, buy better.
It'll start a little revolution with every purchase you make.
Because together we can change an industry.
Maybe even do our bit to help save the world.
Anyway that's all plenty enough talk about ourselves!
Thanks so much for checking out what we're up to here at Goose Studios.
