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".
The DOMENICO is a fairly large messenger bag (see our laptop bag comparison table) that provides enough room for a laptop and other small valuables or documents. It is designed to be rugged and the distressed leather used by Marco and his team of craftsmen really gives it a rugged character. This is accomplished by using full grain leather throughout: the best quality leather that will absorb what interacts with it, will show scratches, and will regenerate with care. This kind of leather is perfect for the unique dying process patented by Marco: the leather and the dying process ensure that each bag is very unique as each leather will react to the dying process differently. Every time you touch the DOMENICO you will be reminded of how special this bag is and will probably often wonder how it will age over the years.
Please note that the PATENTED TREATMENT these bags go through 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.Features:
