Handcrafted Leather Travel Bags For Adventurers.

Chuupul’s story has everything a story recipe requires to be successful: a great dream, plenty of love and passion, and of course, a pinch of adventure!

"Most dreams sound just a little bit crazy when you say them out loud.
 -Natashia Paul

I am a nomadic soul with an entrepreneurial mindset - the countries of the earth have graced me with the opportunity to experience her treasures and commune with her people. For me, there's nothing like the freedom of travel.

In search of mental and physical liberation, I drove from New Orleans, LA, to the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, with my dog Foley, just us two...dreaming and driving. As I moved throughout Mexico, constantly unpacking and repacking my luggage along the way, my imagination found a home in Chuupul Leather Travel Accessories. 

Inspired by the Mexican culture and designs, I decided to combine my long-lasting love for handbags with my passion for traveling, and just like that, Chuupul was born! 

Creating Bags That Celebrate Minimalism. My goal is to offer discreet luxury to business and vacation trips by creating minimalist designs with no attention-grabbing embellishments or logos.

Made with 100% premium full-grain leather, our pieces will last years and get even better over time.

Each Chuupul piece is handcrafted. Every scratch, scar, cattle brand, and color variation add individuality to our products, making every bag unique.


We are developing A Socially Active Brand.  A considerable part of Chuupul's mission is to assist the many communities Natashia calls home. Based in New Orleans, Louisiana, Chuupul Leather is NOLA proud, a city known for its resilience.  Chuupul Leather is committed to sharing the in spirit of perseverance.

Delivering on that mission, the company has developed supporting programs in Mexico offering food and jobs to people and artisans affected by the pandemic. In the States, we are donating backpacks to kids in foster care and an array of other charitable organizations.

Natashia's ultimate goal is to use something small, like a backpack, to inspire people to go after their dreams while also giving back to those in need! 

We are committed to providing high-quality travel accessories with a purpose.
