Chapel Leather

Chapel Leather

Chapel was founded by Caleb Pedersen in 2009, and evolved from a need they had whilst riding bikes around Cape Town. They couldn’t find a backpack that they liked and was made locally, so they designed one, made it, tested it on friends, and started production on what is now one of their best sellers. 

In the same way all CHAPEL products have evolved from a need they have identified..... and every product has been designed, tested and modified so that the end product is perfectly designed!

Chapel is inspired by the joy of watching an idea come to life and the reward of working through a design problem until a simple, beautiful product emerges. All of Chapel’s goods meet a local need. Each bag, sleeve and garment is produced in small runs that respond to current trends and most importantly, to the demand they see on the street.

All Chapel bags, holdalls, purses and wallets are ideal for the traveller or business person alike. The leather is soft, natural and beautiful. All hand-made in Cape Town, South Africa.

CHAPEL use a range of game, bovine and Kudu leathers as follows:
Chocolate Brown – Kudu Game skin / leather
Tan – Bovine Pull-up leather
Brandy Brown – Bovine Leather
Black – Game Antelope Leather
