About Goose Island


I'm Karen Hutchings, the founder of Goose Island. It feels great to have you interested in my company so let us tell you a little more about us.

With the head office based in Swansea, South Wales, Goose Island is a family business that has been successfully sourcing, importing and retailing high quality ladies fashion for over twenty five years.

I have a keen eye for quality and constantly strive to create a unique range of women’s clothing, that is comfortable, affordable and stylish, and not to mention one size! The Goose Island Buying Team regularly visit our Italian suppliers to source the latest prints, fabrics and designs for our two high street stores, online store and wholesale market, keeping our ever evolving brand up to date and on trend.

Goose Island has become a brand associated with individuality, quality and comfort and has consequently created a loyal and broad customer base throughout the UK and mainland Europe. It is known for its relaxed, layered style with intricate fabric combinations, beautiful prints and elegant feminine shapes, and also excellent knitwear and unique accessories to compliment any occasion. 

There are currently two retail stores based in the classy market town of Cowbridge, the vibrant and popular holiday village of Mumbles.

The Cowbridge shop has been opening its doors on the high street to customers for more than twenty five  years, the Mumbles store has been welcoming clients on busy Newton Road for over 20 years. In each store you will find a warm welcome, friendly staff and unique clothing to suit you.

Lots of Love Karen Hutchings x

P.S  *Myself and my team take pride in showcasing our latest and newest styles every Monday & Friday at 4pm on our Facebook channel. Don't forget to head to our page, like and follow us, and we'll keep you updated on all the latest.*

Goose island has now been repeatedly recognised with awards for both the retail stores and individual achievement including winning the best Welsh fashion and accessories store in the welsh SME business awards 2019 and 2017.
