John Chapman established in Cumbria makes hand crafted bags for travel, leisure, business and sporting activities. Featuring a contemporary approach to classic English style Chapman is known for for it’s unsurpassed quality.
One of the last remaining companies to make bags exclusively in the UK in their own workshops, Chapman also ensures the highest possible product quality with around 80% of the direct manufacturing cost of our bags is accounted for by the materials alone.
Focusing mainly on multi layered waterproof bonded cotton canvas for the body of most bags which is accented by sturdy bridle leather trim, Chapman still hand cuts the material for each bag which is then machined by hand.
Of course, it’s the commitment to filling customers exact needs via their bespoke services, which is the main purpose of this post. Remember, one doesn’t need to become exceeding complicated and arrange an original design to use these services. From the numerous models available on their website, you can begin to piece together an idea of your own creation through the combination of various existing elements coupled with you own size requirements (a shortcut to your own distinct luggage with very little time and effort).
Below are a few models which may give you inspiration for your next piece of luggage.
