“Happiness is the greatest measure of success”

heidi and adele fish leather bags

In 2013, after over twenty years of friendship, Heidi Carneau and Adèle Taylor launched Heidi & Adèle, an independent hand bag and accessories brand specialising in eco-exotic® leather.

Inspired by their Franco-British upbringing and love of the unique, Heidi & Adèle products are a combination of Parisian elegance and flirty London exuberance. Their design philosophy focuses on creating simple and elegant products, using eco-friendly innovative materials in a large array of colours and textures. Using high grade leathers and incredibly vibrant eco-exotic® skins, Heidi & Adèle create inimitable pieces that fuse beauty with practicality – a spot of every day luxury for the relaxed, glamorous and confident woman.

Ethical trading and sustainable sourcing are the brand’s top priorities and Heidi and Adèle have travelled the world to source the suppliers and manufacturers who share their ethos as well as their dedication to producing exquisitely crafted products. Passionate about eco-exotic® leather, Heidi and Adèle have made it their mission to put it on the map as an eco-friendly viable alternative to more traditional exotic skins which often use endangered species. 

Heidi & Adèle is driven by the sincere belief that fashion has an important part to play in making sustainable and ethical choices accessible to everyone. Meet the rest of the team whose talent and commitment is central to the Heidi & Adèle brand:
