Florida-based international stationery and lifestyle brand Rifle Paper Co has been building fans since it was started in 2009 by husband-wife team Anna and Nathan Bond, an industry-leading brand known for greeting cards, planners, calendars, and more. The company has a growing presence in the UK, stocked by many independents, as well as John Lewis, Paperchase, Bentalls, Dobbies and Selfridges.

Its signature aesthetic, shaped by Anna Bond’s hand-painted illustrations, appeals to a spectrum of customers with a look that is both modern and timeless.

Building on the coompany’s successful collaboration with US sneaker company, Keds to launch a collection of canvas sneakers featuring Anna’s prints, Rifle has teamed up with L’Occitane, with a limited edition shea butter collection and Valentine’s Day range.

“I started Rifle Paper Co. with the hope of bringing beauty to the everyday,” says Rifle Paper Co’s co-founder and creative director Anna Bond, “I’m thrilled to partner with L’Occitane, a brand that shares the same sense of small pleasures, as we create a custom collection inspired by the gardens of Provence.”

Little Paperie, a card and stationery shop in Derbyshire is one of the indie stockists of Rifle Paper Co. products. Co-owner Lucy Sticka says: “We have stocked Rifle Paper Co. since we opened in 2014. We (with co-owner Heidi Richardson) were both big fans of the brand before we opened Little Paperie and knew that if we wanted to be a luxury paperie we needed to secure some of the iconic American stationery and greeting card brands.”

Lucy is a big fan of Anna’s distinctive design style, describing Rifle Paper Co as “more of a lifestyle brand; it’s like buying into a piece of art with each product. Everything is worthy of being pinned on the wall! The greeting cards fly off the shelves and more recently the agendas have been very popular.”
