NIXEY celebrates the artisans of the British Isles.

 

Laura-Marie Nixey (Designer and Founder) has always been proud of the rich cultural tapestry of the British Isles. A NIXEY leather bag pays homage to this by reinventing the sporran, a classic piece of national Scottish, Irish & British military dress.

From Laura:

"NIXEY began in 2016 with a sketchbook and pencil on my dining table in South London.

With my own family history spanning England, Ireland & Scotland, I wanted to design a bag that celebrated this. With a decade working in the Art & Decorative Arts industry, I also have a real passion for the artisanship thriving in Britain today. I found a traditional leather-maker near the Scottish Highlands who appreciated my design & brand values & so the original 1834 bag was born.

Today I run the business from my flat in London where I live with my partner Alex and our little boy Dylan. Dylan and I take regular trips to Scotland!"

NIXEY is committed to creating the finest leather goods to champion the abundance of skill, quality and heritage of the British Isles.
