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.

Multi wear - clutch, shoulder & crossbody


The Kate shoulder bag is the perfect companion for low-key days and nights. Clean lines and a simple structure are complimented by fine Italian leather, perfectly placed stitching, and gold-tone fittings. Comes with two straps – one shorter strap for wearing over the shoulder and another for wearing across the body for a hands-free approach
