PapillonKia Ltd was set up in June 2014. The whole concept was developed around Buying New Designer Handbags and Accessories at Used/Affordable Prices. That has been our business case and motto from day one and will continue to be so.

The business has always been an e-commerce business purely to keep costs down and therefore forward these savings to customers. The brand was established with an ebay shop named PapillonKia Ltd (or kia6814) followed by a Facebook shop shortly after. Sales have rocketed and within the first 3 months of development, PapillonKia became a Top Seller on ebay with a feedback score of 100%.

PapillonKia has now entered the Pre-loved market due to increased demand, but all of these items are in ‘as new’ condition. They will have only been used a handful of times and are carefully inspected and scrutinised before re-sale.

PapillonKia is also looking to enter the Consignment field where by client’s old designer handbags can be sold for a small commission. This will be updated later.

All bags sold by PapillonKia (new and pre-loved) have been sourced from authorised re-sellers and past clients. All bags have been authenticated and are 100% Authentic. Papillonkia do not entertain the counterfeit market and one of the main reasons for establishment was to stamp out fakes.


Well I’m Aqila….! I am 1 of 7 girls, YES 7 girls (No. 6) to a lovely Asian family. Brought up in a family business it was inevitable that I would have my own business one day. After years of studying, up to MBA level, so that I didn’t have to get married alas though, it eventually happened..!

I worked for many years in the Banking and Investment Banking Industry in the City of London only to realise it was time for my husband and I to start a family. Mother to 2 beautiful princesses who are my absolute life – another chapter was formed.

It was whilst being a stay at home mum that I realised my priorities had changed and I couldn’t just nip out in my lunch hour to purchase the latest Gucci or Louis Vuitton bag without having a care in the world. I have over 30 years experience of buying designer handbags and decided to search the web for Pre-loved bags to purchase to fuel my passion as they would be a lot cheaper wouldn’t they? Goodness wasn’t I wrong…! That’s when I decided there was a need for Papillonkia to be born. After over 700+ sales in the last 10 months – I think I was right…..
