Rolling In Roses is a small, British, sustainable indie label. producing chemical free, ethical wedding dresses using peace silk and recycled fabrics.

We aim to offer a range of styles to cater for all tastes, so our zealously individual brides are free to choose a wedding dress that suits both their personality and figure. Our mission is to meet the needs of everyone from all walks of life and of all shapes and sizes.

All our gowns are individually made to order by a tiny team of talented seamstresses here at our atelier in York, England. This small-scale ethical production means we are in complete control of the quality of our gowns and are delighted to be able to offer customisations for individual brides who request them. We also have no size restrictions on our dresses so each design can be made in any size required.

The name ‘Rolling In Roses’ is taken from an early Patti Smith poem. Colloquially known as ‘the godmother of punk’, she embodies our ethos of designing for the offbeat, sophisticated, fiercely independent bride. The dreamers, the poets, the music-makers, the lovers.

We use sustainable, ethically produced, organic and eco-friendly fabrics, and offer vegan alternatives to silk. We also recycle all our fabric offcuts, and package our dresses in biodegradable bags, recycled acid-free tissue paper, and unbleached cardboard boxes. We strive to run our business as ethically as possible in every way.

I found the gorgeous ‘Vega’ dress made by ‘Rolling in Roses‘ (who specialise in dresses made with ethical and sustainable fabrics, and hand-make their dresses in their studio in York) at the beautiful ‘Story of my Dress‘ shop in West Malling. I had seen them on Instagram and knew they had such a selection of beautiful and different dresses; not like I’d seen anywhere else.

The team at Story of My Dress bridal boutique were so lovely. Rolling in Roses design and create ethical and eco-friendly wedding dresses, and make them by hand in Yorkshire. So, that was that! I think it was truly meant to be, and I walked out with that dress, and carried it on the train home with me that day. It was such a relief!

I knew I wanted lace and long sleeves for my dress. When I met Cara at Story of My Dress and she showed me some of the Rolling in Roses designs I just fell in love with their whole vibe.

I purchased it at A Most Curious Wedding Fair in Shoreditch, London. Hayley, the designer, is so talented and lovely. It was the first dress I looked at and tried on. It stood out from the rest! I love sparkles and angel sleeves and the back detail is just stunning.
