Ali Miller London is a quintessentially British luxury homeware brand offering fine bone china tea sets and playful textiles, all which tell a story. Each piece is crafted from the finest materials, designed and decorated by hand in the UK.
Ali’s work are collages of personal experiences, family history and identity. Her designs are inspired by childhood memories. She is passionate about creating new from old, breathing life into memories so they can continue to exist in new ways.
As a child growing up with severe dyslexia, Ali found solace in art. After graduating from art school, Ali worked in window design at Selfridges and Fortnum and Mason, London, Ali started to experiment, designing on household items such as tables, chairs and wardrobes. It was her idea to bring to life her Grandmother’s unwanted china, that led to Ali’s first of many china tea-sets.
Ali exhibited in London, Paris and New York. In 2010, John Jones Framing invited her to run a major exhibition. Her collections sold out, and Ali Miller London was born.
