Influences of modernity, minimalism and functionality have set the boundaries for the Kuku Big Bag creative language.
Kuku Big Bag is a brand of handcrafted, functionally designed leather accessories founded by designer Candice Lau. They are a modern take on traditional leather work and the belief in maintaining this art is upheld by the individual craftsman who hand make each bag. With leather sourced from selected European tanneries and traditional leather working tools, Kuku Big Bag is a mark of quality and professionalism, designed for those who appreciates its aesthetic statement of bold, contrasting colours and its juxtaposition of shapes.
In 2011, Candice Lau moved into a shared house in Highbury. There it was, underneath the staircase was the 1970s sewing machine which would become the humble beginnings of her journey away from advertising and into leatherwork. 'The Hendrick' was her first experimentation with the use of leather. This inspired and became the catalyst for further training and she eventually gained expertise in her field of leatherwork through the College of Fashion.
