Rockcoco - Purveyors of Fine Fans was founded in 2014 by British sisters Denise Frankel and Janis Sher based on their passionate belief that the time was right to revive high-end luxury hand fans as the ultimate luxurious and practical accessory for the modern woman. The sisters have collected and used antique fans for many years but could not find in the current market any of the same high quality. After researching the market extensively they could see that these sorts of fans did not exist and thus Rockcoco fans was born. The brand was named Rockcoco which the sisters felt embodied their product, classical with a modern and edgy twist.
As the first luxury hand fan producers in London since the early part of the 20th century the sisters have become the go-to women for these exquisite accessories available through three Rockcoco fashion collections - Bridal, Bespoke and ready-to-wear. The Rockcoco collections are created by artisans using traditional skills and a deep understanding of the rich history of the fan. The hand fans are characterised by attention to detail, luxury materials and an elegance and grace that speak to the modern woman. The fans are made from only the finest quality materials including mother-of-pearl, ebony, fine silks and cottons, ostrich feathers and laces.
Finding craftsmen who share their passion for creating the highest quality fans has been critical to the brand’s success. The sisters have been working with Artisans from Spain who for generations have been producing high quality, hand made hand fans. Rockcoco are also proud to be working with British companies to reintroduce fan making to the U.K. Bringing together this expertise combined with the stunning new designs.
We also source our luxury fabrics such as silk and chantilly lace, from royal warrant holder Joel & Sons of London.
As the first British hand fan makers for over 100 years Denise was honoured to be invited to join the Worshipful Company of Fan makers, a Livery Company in the City of London which was established in 1709 by Queen Anne.
