Enduring British Style and Quality, Members Save a Stylish 10%...
Originally a manufacturer of fishing and shooting bags, John Chapman makes hand crafted canvas, leather and tweed bags for travel, leisure, business and sporting activities. We make all our bags in our Tannery Road factory in Carlisle, Cumbria, part of an old industrial site dating back over 300 years. We like to use high quality natural materials of British origin wherever possible.
John Chapman is one of the only British brands to manufacture its bags exclusively in its own British factory, which we recently expanded and refitted in a major investment programme. We believe that manufacturing our products here in Britain is a defining aspect of our authenticity. Over the years we have found that discerning customers from all over the world agree!
When you buy a Chapman bag, you are investing in an authentically British made piece of enduring style and quality. We make men’s shoulder bags and luggage in canvas, leather, tweed and wool, drawing on Britain’s rich heritage of traditional field sports.
Chapman offers an authentically British made alternative for Women. We work with some of the country’s leading designers to offer elegant styles capable of handling all your busy daily needs.
