Chapman Bags + Giveaway

18.9.15

I'm passionate about supporting British brands, and I'm delighted to introduce you to one of my favourites, Chapman Bags.

Originally a manufacturer of fishing and shooting bags, Chapman Bags  makes hand crafted canvas, leather and tweed bags for travel, leisure, business and sporting activities. Using high quality materials of British origin, all of the bags are made in their Tannery Road factory in Carlisle, Cumbria. This great video shows how the manufacturing process works:

Chapman Bags are committed to their base in Cumbria, and the natural beauty of the surrounding Lake District and Borders has provided much of the inspiration for their canvas, leather and tweed bags. A number of the bags are named after local places and pastimes.

Most of the employees are Cumbrian born and bred, and whilst some have been with the Company for much of their working lives, Chapman Bags are also committed to taking on and training young people, an investment essential to maintaining the technical and craft skills required to manufacture in England. They recently launched three new apprentice programmes, all vital for the continued success of the business.


I've teamed up with Chapman Bags to give one lucky reader the chance to win a Large Border Rucksack. A classic canvas rucksack style designed for carrying larger loads; the bag is suitable for hiking, touring, cycling and commuting. Features adjustable 2" shoulder straps made from military specification 100% cotton webbing. Quick release flap opening. The bonded cotton canvas is multilayered, rugged and waterproof.
