Not many people will have taken the same route into handbag and accessory design as Coco Barclay. Her training was in fashion and then millinery design and her first job was working in a hat factory where she was employed to convert "rejects" into one-off designs.
She spent many years designing for her own label and in 1991 set up in partnership with Tak Peppas. Together they designed and launched their first interior design product. The gaint wall organizer has become a classic, signature product and remains in the range today.
Coco's real passion is accessories and four years ago she launched her first collection of handbags and jewellery. She works in the highest quality, ethically sourced materials and her designs are fun, uplifting, but always practical too. Her jewellery designs combine natural materials and craft skill with ultra modern production methods. The look is original and feminine.The handbag range is now available all over Europe and Japan as well as here in the U.K. Tak and Coco have brought together their skills to create handbags which connect to the wearer's inner self. People have been known to wear them on Christmas day with their pyjamas!
