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

We welcome visitors to our factory shop, which has been significantly expanded and refitted. We sell a wide range of bags and showroom samples, many at attractive prices

We also receive numerous requests for bespoke bags, a service we have happily provided since the Company’s inception. This kind of personal service has always been important to us, and we feel it’s a real point of differentiation to the increasingly impersonal way in which luxury products are sourced and sold
