Jane Buck established the Foxy & Winston line in 2005. Her charming shop and studio (opened in 2009) is in Red Hook, Brooklyn, just a few short blocks from the water and nestled in amongst a row of wonderfully unique stores. Here she creates playful and vibrant designs on stationery and textiles, using screen printing and letterpress techniques. Over the years she has built a reputation from her whimsical line of paper goods, organic screen-printed textiles and custom letterpress stationery.

"Everyone who cares about design seems to want wedding invitations made with letterpress printing—the old-style craft printing that shows the bite of type into thick paper. And every happy couple discovers the same thing: It costs a fortune, easily topping $2,000 for a set of even basic invitations. Jane Buck’s Red Hook home-goods-and-stationery shop, Foxy & Winston, is not dirt cheap—no letterpress printer is—but it’s at the lower end of the price range, and her custom design work is perfect: whimsy for one event, cool elegance for another, and everything in between. One-color letterpress save-the-date cards are $525 for 100; two-color letterpress invitations are $660 for 100"
Jane studied Fashion and Textiles in England, her native country. Her inspiration comes from a love of animals and nature, with a spot of humor thrown in for good measure. Jane lives in Red Hook, Brooklyn with her Kiwi Husband Simon and their beloved Beagle Beatrice.
Alongside the Foxy & Winston brand, Jane has curated a delightful selection of goods made by friends and makers from all around the globe to create a store that has a little bit of something for everyone.
