Marco Campomaggi's bags boast a style that is rugged-chic, and possess a distinctly artisanal look and feel.

His bags undergo a unique manufacturing process, where each bag is washed and dyed in its entirety after all the parts are put together - straps, lining and all. This technique (patented by Marco's Campomaggi brand) not only gives Marco's bags their vintage, weathered look, but also makes each single piece really a one-of-a-kind work of art.

The leather used is 100% Italian full-grain leather - the finest quality - and the more you wear it, the more charm and personality it acquires. The fabrics and straps are all made of 100% environmentally-friendly cotton, adding to the timelessness of Marco's bags.

Everything about Campomaggi bags exude character - from the uniquely-dyed leather and the distressed hardware to the confident designs that invite you to "come see what I'm made of".

WE. KNOW. CAMPOMAGGI.

Classic
(Item: IT-CM-RC01)

Authentic. Genuine. Real.
If these are characteristics you value, then this distressed leather messenger bag may be just what you are looking for. It marries Italian design and craftsmanship with Italian Vacchetta leather and antique-finish hardware, and exudes a sense of quiet confidence. Furthermore, the natural beauty and peculiarities of the leather are carefully preserved, giving each individual bag a highly distinct, one-of-a-kind look.

A word of caution: this bag is intentionally made to be imperfect. It's been distressed and then distressed some more by a unique manufacturing process, resulting in a downright beaten, weathered, and non-uniform look. This PATENTED TREATMENT guarantees that no two bags are exactly alike. Because each "skin" is unique in the way it absorbs color, stretches and shrinks, each finished bag is distinct in its color, tonality, and texture. The resulting shape and size may also vary slightly.

Read a Marcopoloni Staff Review of this item.

Features:
  • Handmade with 100% Italian full-grain Vacchetta leather
  • One main compartment with zipper closure
  • One zippered interior pocket
  • One small interior accessory pocket
  • Comfortable cotton strap, adjustable in length up to 50" (unless indicated as leather strap)
  • Extra-long leather zipper pulls
  • Campomaggi leather badges on back and inside of bag add character
  • Distressed hardware for an old-world, worn-in look
Cristoforo Colombo - or Christopher Columbus, as we all know him - requires little introduction. Please note that although this bag is named after the famous navigator, we can neither confirm nor deny whether he actually used a bag like this one.

Customer Reviews

FANTASTIC Product and Service

- By Meg, Cheney WA
I ordered this bag after buying a backpack of the same leather last year. Not only is this a stellar, well made, gorgeous bag, it is easy to wear and not too heavy even though it is quality leather. Customer service and follow up was outstanding. This is my third purchase from Marcopoloni and I can't say enough about the overall service and quality every time I order, thanks so much!

Most Beautiful Bag EVER

- By Cory, Ames IA
I have been using this bag for a couple of weeks now and I love it more than any bag I have ever owned and I am sure it will last a very long time. I've owned A LOT of bags! It is supple, versatile, and roomy. The craftsmanship is outstanding - the bag truly is a work of art. Daniele and Anita were more than helpful in making sure I received the perfect bag for my needs and expectations. All of my questions were answered promptly and fully. I will be ordering more products in the future.

My Favorite Bag!

- By Patricia, Brooklyn NY
This is the second one I've owned--The first has a fabric strap which I have needed to replace a couple of times because this is the bag I use everyday. It is fantastic...

Review of COLOMBO Messenger Bag

- By Isabel, Australia
I am happy to fully recommed purchasing a bag from your website. I found the website easy to use, and received prompt responses to all my email inquiries. My puchased bag was delivered promptly, was well packed, and in perfect condition. The Colombo Messenger Bag I bought was a 21st birthday present for my younger brother, and he loves it! He has already taken to wearing it everywhere.
Thanks again for your wonderful service. When looking for more beautiful leather goods, I will certainly use the Marcopolini website again!

Outstanding bag!

- By Tom, Minneapolis MN
I've had this bag for about five months now, and have traveled with it all over the U.S., Scotland, England, Hong Kong and China. I bought it because I needed a bag big enough to fit my iPad, a notebook, a kindle or book, a wallet, cell phone, and pens. This does the job perfectly, it's begins to swell slightly if I have all of that in it, but it works. I've owned a number of shoulder bags over the years and am quite picky about what I like. They have to be really well made of quality materials, comfortable to wear, and, as a guy, I want a masculine look. This is my all time favorite. It looks great - I get compliments on it everywhere I go. I like that each bag is unique; I've referred a couple of friends who have bought the same bag, even ordered the same color, yet each one is distinct. I also really appreciated the help from Marcopoloni in talking to me about what was in stock, specific sizes and colors of different bags, etc. This is a terrific bag from a terrific shop.
