Combining timeless elegance with a fashion forward sensibility, British accessories brand, C.Nicol, creates luxury leather handbags for women.
Founded in 2013 by Scottish designer, Cathleen Nicol, the aesthetic is always graceful and uncluttered. Sourcing fine materials and undertaking high standards in manufacturing are both loyal to the brand’s ethos.
Each bag is hand-cut, sewn and finished by a team of craftswomen, led by a chief maker who has been creating handbags for some of Britain’s best leather brands for 15 years.
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.
C.Nicol was tipped as one of the 'British bag designers you need to know now’ by The Telegraph’s Stella magazine and the new HOLLY
bag became a firm fashion week favourite in 2018, featuring on top online and print fashion publications including Vogue UK, Vogue Paris, WSGN, The New York Times Fashion and The Telegraph.
