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 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.Features:
