Goodship founder, Julie Maclean, is a New Zealand born, Brooklyn based textile designer. She's been designing textiles for fashion companies around the globe for over 10 years, including working at the innovative New York print studio, The Colorfield, as a designer, then later as design director. During this time in NYC, she created prints for many labels, including Diane Von Furstenburg, Oscar de la Renta, DKNY, J.Crew, Topshop and The Gap.
In 2009, Julie started out on her own with Goodship — a line of printed canvas accessories which merged her love of textile design with a desire to always be making stuff. The range consists of fun, functional bags and accessories, in a variety of graphic prints, hand-dyed canvas and carefully curated colors.
Goodship's production is sourced locally (in NY) and the goods are hand-printed and sewn in small quantities. Fabric is sourced from organic suppliers or overage from larger manufacturers, and utilizing the off-cut fabric then recycling any leftovers is all part of the process. Inspired by an eclectic collection of vintage textiles, Goodship's focus is on prints, pattern and color.

We teamed up with daily email, Tasting Table, earlier this year to design and produce a wine tote giveaway. Making the bags was a Brooklyn affair, from the printing and sewing, right down to using Tasting Table's amazing logo designed by Brooklyn branding agency, Red Antler. Working with Tasting Table was a real treat as we're big fans of their epicurean finds.
Goodship collaborated with Anthropologie designers to create a custom Roll Up Tote. Using their seasonal themes as a starting point, we developed a number of prints, including a safari spot and a hand-cut graphic floral. The Roll-Up Tote made the perfect canvas for the bright prints, while offering a stylish and robust, reusable shopping tote to Anthropologie's customers.
