Handmade Bags in Cape Town
In 2009, Caleb Pedersen made a backpack. He'd wear it around town while he rode his bicycle. Little did he know, that exposure would lead to a lot of other people asking, "Where'd you get that bag?" So, he went to work and started making bags, which led to the launch of his brand: Chapel. All bags are handmade in the Chapel workshop at the Woodstock Exchange. In fact, you might just bump into Caleb when you visit the shop. 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.
