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 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. Shop hours are 1000 to 1600 Monday to Friday. Please call us if you wish to visit outside those hours, which we may be able to accommodate. We also cater for factory tours by individuals and groups of no more than 15-20.
