John Chapman Ltd. is a British bags manufacturer. It started out with bags for fishermen and hunters, but soon became an all-round company that will supply anything from a briefcase to a weekender bag. What made John Chapman so popular still remains the same - all of the bags are handmade and sturdy, made from high quality canvas, leather and tweed. We live in a changing world where many of the formerly British brands have since relocated to Asian countries in order to lower the costs. John Chapman remains a proud exception with their one and only manufacturing plant still located in the Cumbria county in North West England.
