In 2015, British handbag brand, C.Nicol, was created by designer, Cathleen Nicol.

The C.Nicol aesthetic is always graceful, fresh and uncluttered and colour contrasting is used carefully throughout selected styles.

C.Nicol prioritises leathercraft over flash trends and this shows in the product composition. Every handbag is made in a manufacturing studio in East London by a team of craftsmen, led by our chief maker who has been creating handbags for some of Britain’s top leather brands for 20 years.

The collection is our young brand’s fresh but authentic take on attention to classic design and a nod to British heritage.

In 2016, C.Nicol took home one of the top prizes for design at the IHDA awards in New York – an annual programme for international handbag designers, and was tipped as ‘one of the British bag designers you need to know now’, by London’s Telegraph newspaper.

Manufacturing in the UK is key to the brand’s ethos; each bag is made in London. The lining artwork is printed in London and changes each season, commissioned from British illustrators, graphic designers and artists.
