The Business Handbag



Work, phone, make up, plastic, keys, sewing kit, mints, first aid, book, lippie … the list is endless. And to carry all of this, is there anything more flexible and adaptable than a handbag?

Well yes, now there is.

Our Business Handbag is handbag, and a back pack and a briefcase. Three bags in one!

A day of meetings followed by drinks and dinner? All your business needs are neatly packed into the slim leather journal with lap top sleeve and pockets aplenty. And the journal is fitted perfectly into a Tardis like bag with plenty of room for all your everyday and evening accoutrements.

We think our Business Handbag is the Chapman answer to that other style essential, the Little Black Dress.

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.
