Brand Story

Rolfe & Wills is run by me, Alice Rolfe.  I'm a Designer & Maker of contemporary homewares. I focus on interesting colour combinations, vibrant design keeping it modern and fresh. I try to keep Rolfe & Wills as ethical as i can, all printed items are organic and printed with organic ink. I use biodegradable packaging as well as FSC certified hardboard for my coasters and card for my prints and greetings cards.

All my designs are hand drawn and developed for the surface design process in my studio in Nailswroth.  Attention to detail is important to me, I like my designs and products to be of a high standard and quality. All my products are organic, responsibly sourced, and printed with non-toxic, organic inks. The full range includes mugs, coasters, placemats, cards and art prints – so there is something for everyone!  To get in contact, go to the contact page in About, or click here

Alice Rolfe spent 10 years studying Fine Art, Sculpture and Print in London gaining a First class degree and MA in Fine Art.  During this time she was teaching and exhibiting in and around London and Europe.

Making is Alice’s passion, so moving on from the conceptual world she came back home to Bristol and with the help of her school friend Chloe Wills, started an upholstery company which eventually evolved into a design company.  Chloe left the company after 6 months to start her beautiful family.

Alice also has a couple of other companies, one is her illustration business - 'Alice Rolfe Illustration' - you can see her Bristol based drawings and products here.

And a bricks and mortar shop called Paper Plane on Gloucester Road, Bristol.  Here i stock over 50 local designer-makers work. You can find it's website here.
