Piperchief began with founder Damian Bell, who as a life-long bagpiper and traveller, decided the soft and bulky bags on the market just weren't good enough for the job.
He wanted a well crafted, beautiful flight case to keep his family bagpipes safe, as well as allowing him to show off his culture and heritage as he travelled the world playing his pipes.
Watch our video on how Piperchief is crafted below.
A Flight Case specifically designed for Bagpipes, it is sized to meet majority airline hand/carry-on luggage regulations, giving you peace of mind that your pipes are with you all the way and will arrive at your destination by your side.
Our cases are handcrafted with Scottish Leather, worked, stitched and finished by hand by expert craftsmen near Edinburgh.
The water-resistant interiors are hand-machined and formed to provide plenty of padded space inside. Along with adjustable straps, your pipes are kept secure and dry. The tamper-proof, lockable and waterproof zipper protects the case and its contents on its travels.
The advanced hard-shell construction, that keeps your pipes protected, is manufactured and tested extensively in Glasgow, to ensure they hold up to the wear and tear of travel.
We also put the bag to the test, and into the claws of Orla, the Golden Eagle, who can apply two tons of crushing power with her claws alone.
A matching range of Drone-rolls, Chanter Tubes , Reed holders and pouches are available to keep accessories contained and give dissasembled pipes an extra layer of protection during transit, arriving organised and ready to set up.
And finally, we use the best Lochcarron Woven Tartan and leather stamping to give each bag an individual, Scottish twist that can also be customised to you or your team.
