Inspired by the beauty found in the understated, our collections of leather handbags are made to last a lifetime and not just a season. 

Established in 2013 by designer Cathleen Nicol and based in the Scottish Highlands, our brand aesthetic straddles contemporary and heritage. The use of high-grade leathers from tanneries with sustainable practises, and luxury textiles from Scotland woven with attention to detail, clean lines and subtle branding are all key to our brand ethos.

Our best-selling Holly bag

One of the first bags created by designer Cathleen, and firmly a C.Nicol bestseller online and in stores. The Holly mini is a chic, slim leather bucket bag with a fixed, soft top handle and an adjustable, removable shoulder strap.

We made our first Rosa bag in spring 2018 and after five years with a strong and structured form, she’s back, but this time with a softer, slouchier more casual feel.

The perfect shoulder bag


Chic, soft, deceptively spacious and made to be shoulder-slung. The Fia bag is made from fine Italian leather and is the perfect companion for taking you from day to evening out.
