Description

Chapal is the reference for luxurious and meticulously crafted leather jackets and accessories. Founded in 1832 in Crocq​,​ Creuse​,​ as a tannery and fur maker​,​ Chapal's reputation slowly grew within France. They open their first Parisian atelier in the 1850's​,​ in Montreuil​,​ and create a new technique to treat fur​,​ mostly by tanning the leather with Colza oil. In 1878​,​ Chapal was decorated with the Gold Medal at the Paris World Fair​,​ followed by another in 1889. In 1881​,​ Chapal story expands to the United States with a new manufacture in Brooklyn.

They sublime products such as rabbit fur so that they ressemble more luxurious items like otter​,​ insulate sheep fur​,​ and create water-repellent for leather.
