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 (a sleeve or case is recommended), other small valuables or documents. The rugged character that the Domenico exhibits is a result of the unique dyeing and distressing process the bag goes through to mimic how leather ages over time. This is accomplished by using full grain leather throughout: the best quality leather that will absorb what interacts with it, shows scratches, and will regenerate with care. Every time you touch the DOMENICO you will reminiscence and be reminded of how that characteristic scratch on the front flap was acquired, the experiences that you've been through with the bag and how wonderfully the leather has aged.
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:
