Happy weekend, everyone! We’re celebrating over here by featuring London favorite, Alice Gabb. Alice will be bringing her beautifully illustrated paper goods to our London Holiday Market this weekend!
Alice is an illustrator and stationery designer creating whimsical paper goods in Hackney, London. Everything made in her studio is either screen-printed or riso printed by Alice. Her work is inspired by her love of language, British regalia and vintage curiosities. We love the British influence Alice adds into her illustrations.
The collection of fine stationery Alice has created was designed with the hope that it encourages people to write more letters by hand. The dramatic length of some of her invitation stationery matched with the handwritten details of Alice’s pen perfectly marries together the intimacy of mail with the significant nature of the stationery itself. These days, receiving a letter or invitation in the mail is quite special.
Sustainability is always on Alice’s mind when it comes to her business. Alice works hard to only use vintage or reclaimed textiles in her products. Her new materials are carefully sourced, and if she does need to buy new, she works with small, independent companies in the UK.
We love Alice Gabb and her amazing collection of work! Be sure to say hello to Alice and pick up some stationery to send to friends this holiday season at our London Holiday Market! Not in the UK? Check out Alice’s webshop and stay up to date with her on Instagram and Twitter. See you all this weekend!
