We are Juan and Anna Donado, owners of Goose Grease.
As a fair trade company, Goose Grease was born in 2011 and ever since has been expanding in unexpected directions. Soon after painting wooden dolls for children, Goose Grease branched out to produce THE ORIGINAL custom wedding cake toppers and custom painted families. Selling unpainted supplies just seemed to be the next logical step, putting together DIY supplies of all kinds. Goose Grease's Artistic Director is Anna Leigh Donado who, along with her husband Juan Carlos Donado, is committed to growing this purpose driven company. Goose Grease’s vision has always been to provide the highest quality, most personalized service. We are happy to have established a fair trade relationship with a small carpenter in Bogotá, Colombia that makes our doll bodies. We use the help of local artisans, who we train and employ, to paint our standard designs. We hope to continue this tradition of seeking out wood-worked items from fair trade, artisanal, and sustainable sources.
Short company Bio for Media Purposes:
Goose Grease dolls are unique hand crafted products, made to last a lifetime. Each doll is carefully hand-chiseled on an electric lathe in a small carpentry shop in Bogotá, Colombia, using sustainably forested wood. Goose Grease trains and employs skilled artisans to hand-paint each peg with non-toxic water-based materials, making them perfect for kids of all ages. Goose Grease is owned and run by Juan Carlos and Anna Leigh Donado in Brooklyn, NY.
