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".

Thick, full-grain Italian leather and does not get any more classic than that! The SANTARELLI is a beautifully distressed briefcase with a bold, rugged look. Large enough to fit up to a 15" laptop and more, this is one of the largest capacity briefcases designed by Campomaggi! Armed with two front exterior pockets, a zippered pocket on the back and a spacious main compartment, this is the truly a no-nonsense briefcase. Whether you decide to hold it in your hand, wear it on your shoulder or wear it crossbody, the SANTARELLI comes with a removable and adjustable strap that maximizes function and versatility.

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.

Customer Reviews

Terrific Bag, Terrific Service

- By Mark, Chicago IL
I bought the Santarelli briefcase in Distressed Espresso, and it's one of the best bags I've ever owned. It has enough room for a laptop, as well as papers and other odds and ends (including a book). It feels very sturdy, the lining is very strong as are the zippers and pockets---they're not flimsy---and it looks terrific. I have camera bags as well as a duffle, etc, and this is one of the most beautiful I've ever owned. The service is first rate too, some of the best I've seen anywhere. It was a totally positive experience for me. Highly recommended.

Beautiful craftsmanship & amazing customer service

- By Anita, Marina del Rey CA
I have been in search of the perfect brown, double buckle messenger-style leather satchel for YEARS! I saw a girl with a beautiful one years ago at the train station when I was living in Switzerland and have been coveting one ever since. Every one that came close to what I was dreaming was lacking in something...either the size, ruggedness, leather quality, or color. Then I was reading Paris Street Style: A Guide to Effortless Chic and they mentioned the Campomaggi brand for quality leather bags. I did a search on Pinterest and found the bags to be so gorgeous and exactly the styles I like. I then googled and found Marcopoloni as a retailer that sells the brand in the US and was in love! They had the EXACT bag in the EXACT color I wanted (Cognac, lighter). I contacted customer service as I wanted a leather strap and it was sold with a canvas strap and they were able to upgrade me to a leather strap. Emi even posed with the bag so I could see the size against a petite female. How many times will a company do that for you?! I just received the bag yesterday (2 days after ordering...on a Saturday) and it is exquisite! Beautiful leather smell, quality, rustic and just gorgeous! I cannot wait to use it! And to top it off, the customer service was just amazing. I will definitely be shopping here again (as soon as I can save money for another Campomaggi!). Highly recommend this bag. It is a good size to carry a laptop, notebooks, etc and has two deep pockets in front for easy access items. A small zippered pocket inside and a leather cell phone pouch inside. It also has a zippered pouch on the outside back. The buckles are fully functioning adding to the security of the bag if you will use it for travel (like I plan to) and there is also a clasp in the middle. The whole thing is lined in cotton and overall, it is a very sturdy bag. I upgraded to the 2" leather strap in Cognac to match the bag (I didn't want the canvas strap). The bag and the strap come in its own dust bag for storage. I know will be keeping this bag for a lifetime!

A work of art.

It is beautiful. A work of art. Your standard of service has been most excellent.

Santarelli Briefcase

- By Sabine F, Alpharetta GA
My husband bought this bag in aged olive brown, and the color is IMHO the best color from Campomaggi. The bag is quite large, fitting a laptop and a multitude of paper work and folders comfortably. The downside is that the bag itself is substantial, so it can get a little heavy. The buckle closures are very secure and the shoulder strap attaches to the sides of the bag (not the flap) thus ensuring longevity, again my opinion. There is also a zippered compartment on the back of the bag, great for wallet and the front has two slip pockets that we use for keys and cell phone. There is even a little pocket inside the bag for business cards! This is just another example of amazing Italian craftsmanship. Thank you Marcopoloni!

Review of SANTARELLI Briefcase

- By Kevin, Norwalk CT
I absolutely love the bag and the quality is great. Many people have asked me where I got it and I refer them to your website. My only suggestion would be to change the shoulder strap from cloth to leather. I hate the cloth strap that it came with and think it cheapens the look of the bag. Other than that, it's great.
