Handmade Bags in Cape Town
In 2009, Caleb Pedersen made a backpack to wear while riding his bicycle. Little did he know, a lot of other people would want that same bag. So, he started making bags for others which led to the launch of his brand Chapel. All bags are handmade in their workshop at the Woodstock Exchange. In fact, you might bump into Caleb when you visit. Everything they use to craft their bags is sourced from South Africa. Bag designs are functional and universally stylish, so you'll look good in Cape Town and everywhere else your travels may take you.
