Real Speed is a fun British lifestyle brand taking inspiration from sailing, rowing and dancing.
We create unique clothing and homewares using modern sailcloth and luxury fabrics. The shop is an artist design studio, unique to Falmouth and goods are made on the premises.
Real Speed was trade marked in 2012 by artist and designer Fiona Speed and uses the iconic Real Speed logo with the bullet through the text. Real Speed, pronounced Ray-al, meaning royal is influenced by Arturo Speed, Fiona’s Great Great Spanish Grandfather-in-law.
In 2013 the Real Speed tortoise “Dubby”was trade marked. Inspired by the Galapagos tortoise sculpture that Fiona had seen while walking her dog on Plymouth Hoe.
Fiona spent her childhood in Falmouth where her Grandfather “Dubby”, had a fishing boat the” Solan Goose”.
