Chapman was originally established as a manufacturer of fishing and shooting bags. We now make bags for men and women in leather, tweed and nylon as well as our heritage canvas material. We sell worldwide under our own label and also work with many of the UK’s leading brands to produce authentically British made bags and luggage. If your enquiry is about becoming a Chapman stockist, please email us at trade@chapmanbags.com or call us on +44 (0)1228 514514.

The company has always been based in Carlisle, Cumbria, where all the company’s bags are still made. We recently opened a new manufacturing facility which integrates our old site with a larger and more modern manufacturing area. There is a new reception, office and design area for visiting clients as well as a factory showroom and shop. We welcome visitors, although it is always helpful to call us prior to your visit on +44 (0)1228 514514.

We offer a full design, sampling, development and production service for private label clients. Production can be either on a fully factored or CMT basis. Please enquire for further details on minimums and payment terms by emailing us at trade@chapmanbags.com or calling on +44 (0)1228 514514.
