Handcrafted in Carlisle
Our workshop is on Tannery Road, which is a clue to the long tradition of leather work in this small corner of Cumbria.
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.
Our craftspeople serve years of apprenticeship and as they say, ‘practice makes perfect’, so we never stop learning how to perfect our art. Each new product presents a novel set of challenges and as modern life becomes more complex so do the challenges of making bags and accessories to help us all lead that life.
And because our designers and craftspeople work together in the same workshop good ideas about design and crafting just happen which means that every Chapman works perfectly for you.
We only make our bags in Britain and we use British suppliers wherever possible, not just because they share our standards of excellence, but because the road to sustainability is not in road miles, let alone air miles.
