ABOUT THE BRAND
Rochelle Porter Design (RpD) is an Atlanta-based lifestyle brand that's big on sustainable textile and product design. From vibrant abstract watercolors to crisp black and white motifs, our textiles are marked by a global sensibility and playful vibe.
We believe everyone along our value chain should have the chance to live abundantly, from the farmer who picks the organic cotton for our pillows, to our skilled seamstresses who hand sew them, to the customer who puts them on her sofa.
That's why we're committed to ethical manufacturing practices (fair pay, eco-friendly dyes, organic materials whenever we can) that favor the consumer and the earth.
In a nutshell, we aim to design the flyest possible products while doing the least possible harm.
Hey, I'm Rochelle.
A lifelong lover of style, art, and travel, my influences range from Marimekko to Maori moko, and my design aesthetic goes from pretty to pretty freakin' weird. But here's what you really need to know about me:
I've never met a blank surface I didn't want to print on. I can't help myself. I draw on Styrofoam containers, junk mail, old toilet paper tubes... anything I can get my hands on, really.
A few years ago, I strolled though a Large American Department Store Chain and had an epiphany of sorts: The prints on their clothes, stationery, and plates kinda reminded me of my doodles. Hmmm... could I also get my designs on products like these?
It took some doing, but I was able to turn my passion for doodling into a real-life product design studio. (Who knew?) I absolutely LOVE what I do, and love that I get to share it with y'all.
