New Product | Designing the Simple Key Toggle

September 16 2018
Earlier this year we set out to reduce the amount of leather we waste. Untangling the spindly off-cuts onto our studio table it became obvious that it would be somewhat of a design challenge. We started rolling the strips into spiral toggle shapes and noticed that any marks were concealed in the lower layers.  Plus, the shape that formed was beautifully sculptural and satisfyingly tactile.

Simple Days | Birling Gap to Dungeness by Lydia Harper

August 08 2018
Photographer Lydia Harper is never happier than when travelling, so it seems fitting that when we asked her to capture a Simple Day in the UK she chose to explore somewhere new.  Lydia drove along the South East coast, stopping off at a few places along the coastline from Birling Gap to Dungeness.

Product | O Tote Gallery

July 04 2018
A project that started after meeting Oli through Instagram, it is so rewarding to see photos of people wearing O Tote on the same platform.  The project seems to have come full circle and it is exciting for us to be able to share some of those images.  We very much intend to add to this gallery as the project continues.

Simple Treats | Villa Scarpariello, Italy

June 27 2018
It has been eight years since we'd packed our bags and escaped for seven whole nights away from it all. Villa Scarpariello Relais is about 1.5km east of Amalfi and has 11 apartments that are built into the cliff face overlooking the sea. A historic building in an incredible location, it really does take your breath away.

Ones to Watch | Thibault de Schepper

March 09 2018
What I am willing to share on my account is what I’d purchase myself, what I really do believe in, and what I use, wear, and most important, keep for a very long time. I am too old for fast fashion, and I guess I always was. Every single item you see shared on my account is loved and kept, instead of captured and sold.

Product | Simple Key Wrap

March 09 2018
Much loved by us, and many of our customers, the Simple Key Wrap keeps our keys neat, tidy and feeling nice. Since it’s launch in 2013, we’ve had a few emails from people asking if their car key will fit inside. All car keys are different shapes and sizes, but they are usually quite chunky so the straightforward answer is probably not.

Simple Treats | Alchemilla, Nottingham

February 06 2018
Stairs lead down from the roadside to a warm welcome, views into the open kitchen and a first glance into a lovely space of red brick archways broken up with large skylights. The atmosphere is calm, we’re early, and as more people arrive a gentle buzz circulates.

2018 | Happy New Year

January 02 2018

After a week spent with family and friends, we are feeling well fed and ready to welcome in the New Year. 2017 will always be a memorable year for us. At the end of July we gathered together our nearest and dearest to get married. A weekend full of love and laughter that we wish we could relive all over again.

Ones to Watch | Ume Sacranie

December 12 2017

Effortless chic, says a comment left under a photo of Ume Sacranie on her stylish Instagram feed @umeromaan. Ume does make dressing look simple – keep colour just-off monochrome, wear slim pants cropped above bare ankles, throw on a statement coat and leave the house carrying a neat little bag. Easy.

New Product | Simple Zip Corner Wallet

November 16 2017
We don’t rush things at Campbell Cole – if we're going to create something new, it needs to be right. We obsess over detail, shape, function, proportions, colour, materials and trims. Working closely with our craftsmen; tweaking, iterating and testing until everything is just right, and we're happy to put our name to it.


Calendar | designjunction 2017

October 02 2017

Two days set up and five days exhibiting at any show can be a daunting prospect but this year's designjunction was an absolute pleasure to attend and seemed to fly by.  The key to success is always in the planning and we had carefully designed our stand over the previous few weeks. 

Simple Days | Sand Dunes at Lytham St Annes by Jim Marsden

August 23 2017

Jim Marsden is a photographer from Lancashire. So enamoured with the quality of image that is produced when shooting with film, he doesn’t use digital. We approached Jim to photograph a Simple Day inspired the British seaside, as we knew the rich, almost tangible quality of his work would be perfect.
