Rogers & Goffigon Ltd. uses old world weaving techniques to fabricate designs in natural fiber textiles. For more than 20 years, the company has gained recognition for their refined linens and neutral color palette.
When she first learned of the company, Sara was intrigued by the name Goffigon–one of the oldest families on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Her interest was piqued further by the company’s textile designs, many of which were named for the barrier islands on which she played as a child. Jamie Gould, one of Rogers & Goffigon’s principals, explained that he and his partner named the company after their wives’ maiden names. Before she married Jamie, Dale Gould was Dale Goffigon from Cherrystone Creek, just a mile from where Sara was born. It’s just another example of the quirky coincidences that seem to follow Sara wherever she goes–what her friends like to call “Sarandipities.”
The Rogers & Goffigon collection includes large pattern linen damasks like Kingston Lacy, an eighteenth-century design based on British document fabric. Rogers & Goffigon’s collaboration with Sara resulted in a superb translation of this fabric pattern into mosaic.
