Simple Days | Useful / Beautful Exhibition at Harewood House, Leeds

Last weekend we visited Harewood House, located on the outskirts of Leeds. Built in the 18th century, the house sits within 100 acres of gardens, which has a surprising collection of rare Birds, including penguins and flamingoes! The house plays host to many events and we had made the trip to see the current exhibition ‘Useful / Beautiful: Why Craft Matters’, which runs until 1 September 2019.

The Simple Shop | Jerry bottles

June 26 2019
We have found our favourite water bottle... Jerry bottles are made from stainless steel and is double wall vacuum insulated meaning your water not only tastes fresh but also stays cool for up to 24 hours, or hot for up to 12 hours. We love the minimal design and its clean lines also make it easy to clean.

June 10 2019

The Campbell Cole x Albam collection has been designed to compliment Albam’s seasonal creative story ‘Japanese Gardener’. Delving into this story, our research focused on how Japanese gardeners carry their tools. Tools that are used regularly are carried around the waist so they are close to hand. Often hung from belts made from webbing, with sharp edges safely in leather pouches.

2019 | Happy New Year

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. We particularly admire the sculptural quality of his studio work so were delighted that Adam suggested taking his camera outside to document a Simple Day at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park...

New Product | Designing the Simple Key Toggle

September 15 2018
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.

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.

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.
