WHAT IS THE FOWNDRY?
It’s a hub. A repository. An online shop. Full of hand-picked products that Ryan, Ben, Satnam and the team have found on their travels throughout the world.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN ‘PRODUCTS YOU’VE FOUND’?
We’re cool hunters. Design detectors. Curators of curios. We’re passionate about finding the most cutting edge innovations in design, tech, homewares, and gadgets; and bringing them here for you to enjoy. Well, to our HQ in Oxfordshire actually. But here is easier to visit.
CURIOS? INNOVATION? YOU MEAN YOU SELL NOVELTY STUFF
Wash out your mandibles. No. Everything you see in the Fowndry is here because it’s brand new, exclusive, innovative, quirky, beautiful, different or simply makes us smile. If it’s not worthy of your money and attention, we won’t sell it. The world has enough landfill.
WHAT MAKES YOU SO QUALIFIED?
Ben has a very powerful pair of eyebrows. But also, we have over 30 years of collective experience in global product sourcing, ecommerce, product development licensing and wholesale. Which in normal speak means we’re good at finding things, making things, buying things and selling things. For brands you might have heard of, like Firebox, Argos, Harrods, The Conran Shop and the The Discovery Store; as well as awesome products you might have bought, such as the Volkswagen Camper Van Tent, Flip Digital Video Camera, Giant Gummi Bears, WiFi Bathroom Scales, the Magic Wand remote, the Voodoo Knife Block, the iCade for iPad and so on…
WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
It’s all for you! The Fowndry is a place for you to discover everything cool, quirky and cutting edge that’s happening in the world right now. So take a look around. Ask questions. Share your discoveries with your friends.
The Fowndry only works when curious people start looking...
