We're Sam and Rich, co-founders of Goose Studios. Cheers for stopping by and checking out what we're up to. We hope you're doing ace!
We're a friendly bunch who like to keep things personal, so have a read about what we're all about - then come say hey over on instagram 👋 goose_studios.
We set out to make quality clothing that'll look great for years and is affordable for you and our planet.
We've always been pretty into clothing. We love that workwear vibe of high quality, built to last style that can take us from the pub to the dancefloor to a weekend adventure.
Loving brands with a quality workwear heritage like Carhartt or the sustainable and ethical credentials of Patagonia.
Our problem was that apart from nabbing the odd style in their sales, when it came to needing a new basic tee or sweatshirt we could never quite afford the price tags.
Living life in or around our overdrafts meant when it came to our day to day basics, the lure of fast fashion over sustainable alternatives was pretty strong. Which always felt frustrating.
It never seemed right that when we're living through a climate emergency and our pennies are being pinched more than ever - most of us have to make a decision about whether we can afford more ethical and sustainable clothes, or whether we guiltily end up at H&M or Urban Outfitters. All because sustainable fashion comes with a premium price-tag.
In 2016 we figured we'd try to build a brand that fit what we were looking for.
Creating stylish, quality basics at a reasonable price. Putting people and planet first and profit second. Taking the future of our planet seriously but not taking ourselves too seriously.
Using 100% organic cotton. Having a transparent ethical supply chain. Being honest. Always trying to improve. Using plastic free packaging. Being nice. Having a laugh. Playing good tunes.
4 years later this is us.
It's cracking to have you here ✌️
Sam & Rich
p.s. We nearly forgot! We have a question for you too.
Do you need to buy our stuff?
The impact from clothing on the world comes from when each one us buys something new. So when you buy from Goose Studios make sure it's because you really do need a new t-shirt or sweatshirt.
When that old one 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. It's why we sweat the details.
We're big believers in the phrase 'buy less, buy better'. It'll start a little revolution with every purchase you make.
Because together, we have the power to change the world.
Which sounds crazy.
But might just be true.
