Our Story

I want to tell you my story … and perhaps you might become a part of it.

I created the brand, Cecily Clune, partly out of frustration. I wanted to own a designer bag, not for the logo – that’s the last thing I wanted – but for its unique design, quality and sophistication. 

I wanted something beautiful, handmade and not worn by everyone - and it shouldn't cost the earth.

My Quest

There should be no reason to compromise between design and cost.

My quest has taken me nearly 10 years and all over the globe (pre-COVID) discovering the hidden secrets of the handbag universe that has many illusions.

So finally, I am very proud to present a small range of upscale handbags that are:

  • as good as, if not better quality than couture brands
  • are reasonably priced
  • exceptional quality - that only handmade gives

My Inspiration

I've been inspired by the exceptional design and quality of some of the world's most premium brands. In particular the French and Belgian artisan brands with an extraordinary price tag.

They were exquisite, beautifully made in bespoke leathers and unique. You could tell they were different: they were special.



The secret to Cecily Clune is what we don’t have: middlemen.

I’m obsessed with quality and in order to offer the highest standard at an accessible price, we handle everything ourselves, in-house.

No third parties mean no unnecessary mark-ups.

It’s the very simple reason why we no longer have to choose between luxury and cost.
