Chapman Bags

 

The latest collection from Cumbria-based outdoor entrepreneurs Chapman Bags comes in the form of the British Rivers Collection.

Quintessentially British, each bag in the British Rivers Collection by Chapman Bags is named after a river in the United Kingdom, with each managing to flow nicely with an alliterative title. The collection includes landmark accessories such as the Tyne Tote, the Conon Clutch and the Ribble Rucksack and various other lavish linguistic luxuries. Inspired by the most acclaimed fishing rivers across Britain, each bag is made in the Chapman Bags factory in Carlisle, Cumbria. We take a look at some of the British Rivers Collection – and the classic British rivers that inspired them.

 

Chapman Bags - The Tyne Tote

To open proceedings, let’s begin with the Tyne Tote (£175). The River Tyne is in the North East of England and is a well known British River, running through Newcastle upon Tyne, and is formed by the confluence of two rivers – the North Tyne and the South Tyne.

Totebags are commonplace today, casually slung over the shoulder, adorned with various patterns, colours, and quotes to suit all styles. Embodying this fashion statement while blending it with their signature style, Chapman Bags offer the Tyne Tote in shades of khaki and olive. Made of the finest 18oz proofed British dyed canvas, dry waxed to give a showerproof finish, the Tyne Tote features reinforced leather base corners, metal feet, and a large interior leather trimmed zip pocket. For additional device security, this pouch has been well padded to ensure your gadgets travel just as safely as the wearer. Leather hand grips ensure the bag remains both sturdy and practical, and brass hardware ensures a long-lasting life, full of many an adventure.

Moving onwards and up through the United Kingdom, we find ourselves in the Scottish Highlands, stood at the bank of the River Conon.

Chapman Bags – The Conon Clutch

 

Handmade in Cumbria and designed with travelling light in mind, the Conon Clutch (£105) from Chapman Bags is the perfect bag for the adventurer ‘on-the-go’, fitting a tablet snugly for those quiet moments. Weaved from shower-proof British canvas, you’re safe in the knowledge your gadgets will stay dry, whatever the weather. The Conon Clutch’s separate front pocket allows today’s traveller to carry anything else they may need, from notepads to pens and pencils, making it the ideal accessory for any journey of discovery. With a detachable hanging strap, the Conon Clutch can be slung lazily over the shoulder or carried by hand for a casual ‘man about town’ aesthetic.

Last but by no means least, we dip down into the North West of England, as follow the stream of the River Ribble, which flows through Lancashire and North Yorkshire. This classic British river has a lot of history, and was well known to the Romans.

Belongings are kept safe with the Ribble Rucksack’s interior padded technology compartment, which accompanies the bag’s main compartment, sealed with lockable double zips and leather pullers. Handmade in the brand’s factory in Carlisle, Cumbria, the Ribble Rucksack features brass hardware which tastefully complements the bag’s vegetable tanned leather trim.
