Nicolson Russell Cutlery

WORDS Nomfundo Nkambule

Nicolson Russell’s gorgeous designer cutlery ranges are inspired by the company owner’s travels.

Emma Jane Russell, owner and head designer at Nicolson Russell, has travelled the world in search of inspiration for her designs and to find designer cutlery to import and manufacture under her brand.

Nicolson Russell has an extensive offering. There’s something for every table and budget, from the price smart Bella Casa range, perfect for everyday use, to the luxury titanium-plated stainless steel cutlery range, which is available in Black, Champagne Gold, Rose Gold and Two-toned.

“Two-tone cutlery is very trendy right now,” says Emma, “and titanium is the best material to use for this purpose, as it allows us to do many colour and texture variations. It is also more durable and less prone to scratches than other materials traditionally used in cutlery plating.”

Nicolson Russell cutlery designed by Emma is manufactured in Europe and China, and packaged here in South Africa. Look out for eco-friendly stainless steel straws, glass underplates and a biodegradable napkin range, which will be available soon.
