Maison Chapal was set up in 1832 in Crocq in Creuse, central France. The company specialises in the design and manufacture of luxury fur and leather clothing and accessories.
The company performs the following processes: - tanning, dyeing and finishing of leather (dressing, stretching, polishing) under the supervision of the team leader/cutter; grading, cutting, assembling and sewing of leather; producing shoes and leather items, iron finishing (traditional). Because each team member works on one item from start to finish, they are experts in every process (cutting, fitting, sewing, etc.) which makes each individual responsible for his or her work and maintains a high level of quality. The company’s customers include some of the best-known labels in the country and private clients all over the world.

The Chapal label is also well-known with car collectors. It also collaborates with other prestigious brands to produce exceptional items. Its history is closely linked with aviation and the French and American armies through the Aviator A1 and Bombardier B3 jackets.
