Ned Corbett-Winder, the founder of subscription-based gift service Not-Another-Bill has spent the last give years scouring the globe for beautiful but hard-to-find products made by independent designers and makers. Each month his subscribers receive a new and exciting gift in the post – a romantic concept that he describes as ‘making letterboxes a more magical place’.
Armed with his now encyclopedic knowledge of product design and gift curation, Corbett-Winder and his team have launched Bill – a collection of leather goods, travel accessories and homeware products all designed in-house. With an emphasis on high quality materials and playful designs, products include everyday items such as a leather folio (£70), key case (£40), and passport wallet (£45), all made in the UK from Italian vegetable tanned leather.

With the first collection already launched, a line of scented candles and solid brass stationery items are set to join the mix next year. The candles, a collaboration with florist Willow Crossley (who also happens to be Corbett-Winder’s sister), blend natural scents from unique floral combinations and will be packaged in elegant marbled boxes that are also designed in-house.
‘Since launching Not-Another-Bill five years ago we've scoured the world for the most interesting products and collaborated with a variety of some of the best designers,’ says Corbett-Winder of the new Bill collection. ‘Having worked alongside these designers to curate thousands of gifts to send out to our subscribers each month it's left us in a unique position to be able to combine all these learnings and with huge pride launch our very own elegant brand.’
