New Product | Campbell Cole x Oliver Hooson Update

April 17 2019
We have been working with Oli on a new style to follow on from O Tote for quite some time and had planned to launch it around about now.  The design work is done, trims are starting to arrive, we're just waiting for the fabric... and this is the exciting part.

New Product | Designing the Simple Key Toggle

February 01 2019
For some time, we've been keen to reduce the amount of leather wasted during production. 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.  The shape that formed was beautifully sculptural and satisfyingly tactile.

2019 | Happy New Year

January 03 2019
2018 was an exciting and busy year for Campbell Cole as the product we had been quietly working on for some time, designed in collaboration with photographer and influencer Oliver Hooson, finally came to fruition. Looking back we had no idea how the launch of O Tote would be received and this was the main reason we decided to work with one local maker to produce small batches.

Wish List | Ian and Felicity's Christmas Gift Guide 2018

November 27 2018

There's a chill outside and a cosy feeling of comfort in our house. It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas. Admittedly, it takes a while but I love writing our Gift Guide.  A little self-indulgent perhaps (as it's basically an elaborate hint to Father Christmas ;-) but also because it's fun to gather together all the lovely things we've discovered over the year and share them with you. Enjoy...

Adam Barclay is a Sheffield based photographer and, alongside his wife Katie, co-founder of In-Grid – a contemporary women’s label celebrating minimalist design and British craftsmanship.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
