Fact + Fiction started life as revolutionary gym bag brand GymTote, founded in 2012 by Helena Searcaigh and handbag designer and mum Nicola Kearney. After years of carrying an ugly gym bag around (and once pulling out a sweaty sports bra in a meeting!) Helena knew there must be a better way to carry her kit to and from work. When Helena met Nicola, the brand was born.
But we quickly realised that people were using our bags as far more than just a gym bag, especially mums and commuters - so we rebranded Fact + Fiction in 2017. Our name reflects that our bags have two side to them: they look like an ordinary handbag but hide a wealth of cutting edge features. We're proud to be a British owned and run company. We love making our customers lives easier - join the handbag revolution!
