We produce elegant leather and canvas products at our studio in Woodstock, Cape Town. All the materials used are sourced locally and quality is of the highest standard. The designs are refined, original and contemporary. CHAPEL was started by Caleb Pedersen in 2009. He was inspired by a trip to India, where he came across the name for his business chappel, which means sandal in Hindi. This set his first venture into motion- which was one of sandal making, this soon developed into the creation of the Rider Backpack- and the rest is history!
