Chapel began when we started riding bikes around Cape Town and couldn’t ﬁnd a backpack that we liked and was made locally. So we mocked it up, tried it on our friends, and started production on what is now our number 1 best seller, The Rider.
This idea of locally sourced material is our foundational value and governs the whole design process. Everything used to craft our products, from the leather to our ﬁne woolen lining is made here in South Africa – and this core value creates the type of challenge that our team has a passion to solve. We keep pushing with what we’ve got until it meets our standards of excellence and durability.
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 our goods meet a local need. Each bag, sleeve and garment is batch produced in small runs that respond to current trends and most importantly, to the demand we see on the street.
