FORLANINI - Small Distressed Leather Messenger Bag

Interior: Approx. 10.25"H x 10"W x 4"D

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 have been using, admiring, selling, and repairing Campomaggi bags for many years, and have helped thousands of fellow Campomaggi fans. Many shops have jumped on the bandwagon since then, carrying a handful of Campomaggi bags ... but do they know Campomaggi like we do? We think not!

The FORLANINI messenger bag gets noticed. This was the first Campomaggi bag that our very own Anita set her eyes on. She custom-ordered it for herself soon after joining Marcopoloni, then wrote two blog posts that generated so much interest that we knew we had to order more.

And we are glad we did. The FORLANINI is a most beautiful messenger bag and a rare smaller Campomaggi bag that clearly appeals to many fans of the brand. It is still spacious because it is somewhat deep and the three pockets in the front provide plenty of organizational options.

The snap-button closures have a built-in locking mechanism. If you know you will be opening the bag up again in a short period of time, snap the closures down just once. Snapping the closures down further (until you hear two clicks) will tightly lock down the bag! It's a great anti-pick pocket for those of you who frequent public transportation.

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.

  • Handmade in Italy with 100% full-grain Italian leather
  • Front demi-flap with two snap-button closures
  • Two large open pockets (approx. 5"H x 3.75"W) in the front
  • One gusseted accessory pocket (approx. 3"H x 5"W x 0.5"D) with snap-button closure behind the flap
  • One external side pocket with fish rivets
  • One open cotton-lined main compartment
  • Interior with one zippered pocket and a metal Campomaggi logo badge on the back wall
  • Smartphone friendly accessory pocket on the interior front wall
  • Adjustable (from 51.5" - 62" long) leather strap
  • Campomaggi logo badge on the back

Enrico Forlanini - .Enrico Forlanini (1848–1930), engineer and aeronautical pioneer. Inventor of the helicopter (1877) and hydrofoil (1900)
