What is Paper Plane?
Paper Plane is an independent shop and gallery showcasing high quality makers and designers from Bristol and the UK.
Paper Plane opened its doors in 2014 with seven designer-makers coming together to sell their wares in a creative co-op. Five years on the shop has grown into the thriving creative establishment it is today. The shop is now run by designer-maker Alice of ‘Rolfe & Wills’ and ‘Alice Rolfe Illustration’, and her mother Sue. Makers Ellie of ‘Little Paisley Designs’, Hannah of 'Studio Taro' work and sell their wares in the shop. Louise is also a talented nature inspired artist.
With a keen interest in supporting young designers and brands, we currently work with over 30 emerging designers, makers and artists. With a love for fresh and modern design, the shop has a clean and contemporary feel, filled with work from designer-makers who share this aesthetic. Products in the shop range from handmade pieces of jewellery to statement light shades, cushions and wall art, all selected to brighten your home and bring a calm aesthetic to your life!
Our shop consists of a front and back space, We use both spaces to display and exhibit work from artists and designer makers from the UK who sell with us. We wanted to bring a fresh modern shop with beautiful hand made products to the area.
Paper Plane is situated on Gloucester Road Central in North Bristol - no. 196 to be precise, on a lovely little stretch of independant shops and cafes.
