You found me! Welcome to the home of the Chopper Bag!

The Chopper Bag has been around a long time. It is bespoke quality hand made custom luggage. This iconic product is now in my capable hands, being produced in Hatton Vale, Queensland, Australia. More information on the product and its background is on the website.

My name is Loretta Matthews. I am a craftswoman with years of experience in custom made canvas goods, and in excellent customer service. I have stepped in to fill Jenni Murphy's (the original designer and manufacturer) shoes. I sincerely hope to exceed all your expectations and make owning a Chopper Bag a memorable experience in buying Australian Made and Owned.

Please feel free to contact me (below or over the phone) with any enquiries or to place an order and pay over the phone. The webstore will also help you order your Chopper Bag and pay online to secure your position for manufacture.

Please check in on the website regularly and feel free to send your own testimonials and photos of your travels with your Chopper Bags through to be added to the site. Please also share with your friends!

I love to have you visit. The workshop is a busy place and based at our personal residence. Consultations for a bespoke build can take over an hour and require my undivided attention. So I need to know you're coming. Life also gets busy and I would hate to miss you if you plan to take the time to come visit. Please just drop me a line before you come.

The details

The top view and unique buckle down closure using stainless steel buckles and hand made leather fittings. A thing of beauty and excellent design.

Small Chopper "Pinky"

My little pink Chopper travels everywhere. She met another great icon whilst at Straddie - the Alvey fishing reel.

In her colour!

Pinky at Coronet Peak, NZ

First time in the snow! New Zealand. Handled it like a professional.

Gear kept perfectly dry.
