Bag Range Inspired By Last King Of Cumbria
UK accessories brand Chapman has released a line of bags inspired by Dunmail, the last king of Cumbria. Made with British dyed and woven military grade Cordura, the Dunmail range draws on Cumbria’s rich heritage of mountaineering, wild fishing and outdoor pursuits. Models included feature a unique toggle fastening, inspired by a traditional fishing float, made from turned and waxed domestic ash and finished with marine quality paint. The bags are further enhanced by the use of bespoke brass fittings, cast in Walsall, including a classic four-bar slide strap adjuster for the rucksack. Other British materials include woven shock cord, military grade cotton webbing and dyed cotton lining. The collection features three styles, all named after locations close to Dunmail’s cairn: the Helvellyn Rucksack, the Grisedale Satchel and the Patterdale Pouch. The bags are offered in Cumbrian-inspired colour ways: slate blue and graphite grey. The rucksack has a capacity of 25 litres, while the Grisedale Satchel has a fully padded interior compartment and full leather flap to secure twin front pockets. The line retails for £125 – £299 and is sold online and through select retailers in the UK, Japan, Germany and Scandinavia.
