ABOUT NIKKI WILLIAMS
NIKKI WILLIAMS is an Australian handbag label that celebrates the journey from the country to the coast, the homes of the woman behind the brand. Created from a necessity wear bags she couldn't find, inspired by the country she loves.
Rising from a desire to offer women a carefree and effortless bag that adds a hint of feminine strength, NIKKI WILLIAMS consists of timeless pieces with a twist. The core designs use top-grain and suede leather that gets better with age, allowing them to be used year after year.
We have a simple set of values: Make beautiful handbags. Treat people well. And tell you all the story of the leather goods we make. All of our beautiful leather bags are entirely handcrafted in limited numbers and not mass produced, which is what makes each bag so incredibly special.
Foregoing fast fashion in favour of classic shapes and quality leathers, a down to earth attitude runs through each piece we create.
The Harriet handbag was first released in 2016, in the labels very first collection. It’s recognisable horseshoe-inspired design made for an iconic bag whose magic is in the fine details. The bag features intricate stitching, braided leather, hidden monogrammed logo in the tassel and the signature knotted details.
To reduce our environmental and social impact, all pieces are made by hand and in limited quantities. We carefully source our materials from places who share our commitment to ethical production and environmental sustainability.
We are actively zeroing our use of plastic to keep our planet and tomorrow plastic free. All orders are now shipped using compostable mailers. Larger orders are shipped using recycled paper boxes that can go into the recycling bin.
All orders come with a natural cotton dustbag. You can use the dustbag to store your piece or use it to keep your small belongings safe.

"My handbags are the story of me... many things inspire me, but my memories of growing-up on a farm riding horses are what inspire me most. I always loved the braided leather of the saddles and bridles, I am just re-creating my own 'designer' version."
