The Studio, The Founders & Their Work

Orwell and Goode are a smiley duo of designer printmakers based in a stunning location in the Scottish Borders and working from two beautifully converted stable blocks. The pair make an interesting combination which is evident in their creations.

Mrs Orwell (Zuzana) and Mrs Goode (Bronagh) met in 2008 when Mrs Orwell taught Mrs Goode how to silk screen print. They became great friends and while on holiday in Ireland together late 2010, they had the idea for ‘Orwell and Goode’. Liking how it sounded like “all well and good”!  In April 2011, with only a few months to create everything they launched at their first trade show.

But there has been a little more to the story they had been keeping a secret for the first two years of business; Mrs.Goode was also in the Royal Air Force working as an aircraft mechanical engineer on Tornado GR4’s at RAF Lossiemouth. Both ladies where working the business every spare hour they had. During these first difficult years, Mrs.Orwell had her first baby and Mrs.Goode served a 4mth tour in Afghanistan (overlapping the birth of little Hamish!).

OAG are now stocked across the UK, Europe, USA, Taiwan and Japan and have extended their collections to include furnishing fabrics and wallpaper. You can also find Orwell and Goode patterned window blinds in John Lewis stores.

Together along with their very talented team they design, hand print and create products designed in a grounded colour palette with captivating patterns. Products for loving, living and giving.
