The Chapman Weekender



How do you improve on a great idea like a weekend away?

Well, we’ve been handcrafting weekender bags since Chapman opened for business, so you could say that this newest addition to our range has been about 30 years in the making.

Perfecting timeless designs demands combining tradition with innovation. So we have added a lap top sleeve and waterproof shoe pocket to our signature combination of canvas and leather to create a bag of both elegance and utility.

We are so confident of its qualities that we think it will be a long time before you will need or want another bag for a long weekend … and it will be a long time before we design a better one.

And tradition is the key to our craft skills.

Just as it takes time to create something timeless it takes time to learn the skills to do so.
