Kathryn Sillince is the creative and founding director behind Magpie Accessories, a British luxury accessories label which since its launch in 2010 has quickly gained a reputation for its craftsmanship and quirky original designs.
Stemming from her background in Fine Art and training at London College of Fashion, Kathryn brings her love for Photography and Illustration to her passion for printing on leather, transforming premium veg-tan hides into kaleidoscopic ‘surfaces’ for her unique designs. Prints range from her personal collection of photographs taken on her travels, to her hand-drawn illustrations.
Kathryn’s flair for designing products for larger than life eccentrics like herself, who need practical yet unique accessories to serve and visually please them at the same time is the reason Magpie Accessories took flight. “Every one of our products is as unique and individual as our clients, as we specialise in creating exquisite bespoke accessories to meet your requirements.”
Most items in our ranges can be embossed with your initials or a personal or meaningful quote, making them the perfect unique gift for that special someone. We also offer a gift wrapping service, customised to your requirements.
Kathryn still hand-crafts many pieces herself, although in 2016 she started a partnership with a long-established British manufacturer who shares her passion for leather craftsmanship, thereby keeping production local and supporting the UK economy.
