About

The Story so far…

Founded in late 2013, Nikki Strange Ltd is an independent British accessories label based in Hackney, London specialising in whimsical, travel inspired prints. We pride ourselves on creating beautiful and original designs that are applied on a range of carefully considered stationery, travel bags, tech accessories & greeting cards, though the range is constantly growing! All our products are proudly made in the UK using independant manufacturers whom we work closely to ensure all products meet our very high expectations and are made with the love and care that we put into designing them.

All our prints are designed in house by Nikki, who uses watercolours and inks to create fluid and highly textural motifs and patterns which are then put into seamless compositions. Her love of nature, travel and colour act as her main sources of inspiration.

Doing our bit

Ensuring  our products here at Nikki Strange  are as ethical and sustainable as possible is something that is very dear to our hearts which is why we work closely with UK manufacturers to ensure quality & standards are met. We also love supporting other small businesses who have been there on our journey and will continue to.

Stationery Products

The majority of our paper based products are produced using FSC certified 100% recycled paper stock, printed using eco friendly vegetable inks. Please see the product descriptions for details on which products are made from recycled paper. All products are printed on FSC certified paper here in the UK.

Fabric Bags

All our fabric bags are made here in the UK with fabric digitally printed in the UK. We have two fantastic manufacturers who we work with to produce these.

Fabricworks, a truly wonderful enterprise charity based in Limehouse, London, teach and train unemployed women in the local area with the necessary sewing skills to give them the skills to work in their inhouse workshop. We love working with Katie & team and are always impressed with the speed and quality that they’re able to get the bags to us!

We also use wonderful local seamstress Rachael to make our bags. Rach is a one woman machine who  always manages to get our bags to us bang on time despite juggling multiple jobs and childcare.

Phone cases

All our phone cases are printed here in the UK by our wonderful manufacturer Adam who we’ve had the pleasure of working with for two years. Working with a local manufacturer means we’re able to offer made to order phone cases which is why we can offer so many styles and models.
