Who are we?
Founded by Rosie Moorman and Will Evans, Rise & Woll is a Yorkshire based team of creatives offering a fresh appoach to design. We’re an independent studio with a difference, creating beautiful design experiences with a strong aesthetic. We are passionate about craftsmanship, traditional techniques, innovative design and bold colour, working with clients globally on a range of scales.
Contemporary Woven Textiles
We aim to break boundaries with our wovens. Based in beautiful West Yorkshire, in the heart of England’s textile industry, we respect the heritage that surrounds us whilst always looking to the future of textile design. We work with our clients to create bespoke, innovative design solutions for the global fashion and interiors markets. Internationally renowned for our innovative use of colour, and with strong technical foundations, we’re flexible and super adaptable.
We produce seasonal in-house collections of woven and multi-disciplinary fabric samples, available to purchase by design. These designs can be purchased as artwork, as a foundation for building collections or for industrial development. Pieces are sold with full design rights and technical details, enabling a smooth transition to manufacture. We also offer short run production on our studio dobby, and offer consultancy services for design and production.
Internationally renowned work with colour
Here at Rise & Woll, we pride ourselves on our eye for colour and our palette development. Inspired by our travels and surroundings, we’re pretty passionate about colour sensibilities. Our seasonal collections focus on the creation of timeless colour with a real inherent beauty. From muted mid-century tones, to flashes of neon and organic hues, we’ve done it all. And we do it well.
In 2017, our Co-Founder Rosie was the winner of the Society of Dyers & Colourists International Design Award, alongside being shortlisted for the Texprint Colour Award, and winning the Woolmark Prize. Praised by the likes of Maurizio Sarti of Lanificio Faliero Sarti for our bold and experimental use of colour, we have been cemented as one of the best in the world for innovative colouration.
Our textile lead, Rosie is a tea-dependant northerner, weaver, and award winning surface designer. Having trained in Woven Textiles, she never really grew out of colouring in, and since graduating has spent most of her life in a Mill. Rosie is often found at trade shows, or hiding in our weave shed. She is also a well known yarn hoarder.
Will handles our graphic and product design projects, having trained and worked as both an Industrial and Graphic designer. Normally found behind a Mac, Will is a coffee fanatic, beard-wearer, and hipster-in-denial. Occasional wearer of bold shirts. His passion is harnessing the power of design to grow local businesses.
