C.Nicol is an independent luxury handbag brand based in the Highlands of Scotland. Combining timeless elegance with a fashion forward sensibility, we create beautiful leather handbags.
Launched in 2015, our aesthetic is always graceful and uncluttered and we love to use the playfulness of colour throughout our collections. Sourcing fine materials and undertaking high standards in manufacturing are both loyal to our brand’s ethos.
In 2016 we took home one of the top prizes (‘Best Resort Bag’) at the International Handbag Designer Awards in New York.
We’ve been very lucky to have support from the British fashion community and media too; C.Nicol was tipped as one of the ‘British bag designers you need to know now’ by The Telegraph’s Stella magazine and our new Holly bucket bag became a firm fashion week favourite in 2018, featuring on top online and print fashion publications including Vogue, The New York Times Fashion and The Telegraph.
Whilst C.Nicol doesn’t have a permanent retail outlet in Grantown on Spey, please do contact us if you would like to book an appointment to see our collection or be invited to our seasonal launch events and sales in the area.
“C.Nicol bags are British accessory classics. I feel like everyone should have at least one. I’ve been carrying two C.Nicol bags for years and they’re still in great condition and continue to garner compliments. It’s always a pleasure to be able to support a business with design flair and integrity.” Kate Finnigan | Fashion journalist and creative consultant
“My C.Nicol bag is a delicious LTB, Little Tan Bag. Organised and sleek. Makes me feel at least 20% more pulled together, but not at all like I’m trying too hard.” Polly Vernon | Grazia UK
