These stylish bags have unisex appeal and make great gifts. Each leather bag is carefully crafted by hand in Cava de' Tirreni, Italy. Vincenzo and his small team of leather craftsmen at Dionigi are proud to be in a workship that carries a tradition of over 70 years. These folks don’t believe in mass-production - in fact, they deliberately limit their production to ensure the highest quality and customer satisfaction. Only the best raw materials, the best designs and the best craftsmanship are good enough to create a Dionigi product.

A unisex messenger bag for grown-ups. Forget stiff attaches or boring briefcases - with this leather messenger bag you don't have to sacrifice style and comfort by going all-leather. Also popular as a bike messenger bag!

The leather used is 100% vegetable-tanned Tuscan leather with its unique surface and unmistakable aroma. Please note that this type of leather contains characteristic grains, wrinkles, tonal variations, and small blemishes which are preserved to maintain the leather's natural beauty, rather than being buffed away to create an artificially even surface.

Features:
  • Handmade with genuine full grain Italian leather
  • Magnetized flap for easy access
  • Two fully lined main compartments measuring approx 2"x13.5"x9.5" each - lining varies by color: Rust Brown and Espresso come with an off-white, lightly padded interior and Black comes with a retro plaid fabric lining.
  • Two small interior accessory pockets
  • Three pen loops and a snap-button key hook (Rust Brown only)
  • Large zippered pocket in the front
  • Large zippered pocket in the back
  • Small vertical zippered pocket in the front flap
  • Comfortable strap, adjustable in length from 25"-46"
  • Two pen pockets on the side
  • Small accessory pocket on the side

Customer Reviews

3+ years later, and the compliments keep coming

- By Kashif, Miramar FL
I have now had this bag for over 3 years. This bag has gone with me from New York to California, Toronto to miami, London to Berlin and even Malaysia to Indonesia and many more countries not to mention daily to and from work and the bag is a beast. It has only gained character over the years as the leather has held up perfectly and the color remains stunning to this day. I started a new position 3 months ago and as soon as i walked in i was complimented on my bag. You will not be disappointed with this bag! the name Dionigi may have started to fade from the strap but the quality remains impeccable. This is the ultimate lifetime messenger bag. My only gripe initially was the magnetic closure wasn't as strong and didn't hold down the front flap as it should have. I spent about $5 on amazon for 4 neodymium magnets and placed them at the same position on the inside of the pockets and the flap now requires two hands to pull off the bag. Very secure and strong. I do wish i could have my bag's strap replaced or cleaned somehow but other than that the bag has been spectacular!

had it for a while

- By Hannah, Glendale CA
I love this bag. I have had it for 5 years and got another complement on it today. I have a crackle finish version, which just looks better and better with wear. It is the perfect size -- small enough for a 5 footer like me, but big enough for a laptop or newspaper. It was more than I ever spent on a bag and worth every penny. Way better than nylon bags that look shredded and grubby after 6 months. At this point, the strap is fraying, and a zipper is broken, and I'd love to re-line it. But it still looks good and functions great. And that's after 5 years of daily use. The only thing I'm not so sure about is the magnet clasp -- by the time I put stuff in it, the magnets don't line up. Not needed.

Review of STORIA Messenger Bag

- By Daniel, Cerritos CA
I love my bag. I use it all the time to carry my Macbook Pro and there is plenty of room for a neoprene sleeve for extra protection. But what I love most about this bag is the compliments I get every time I sling it across my shoulder. Within the first week I got it, my professor complimented me on it as he also had a leather messenger bag but was astounded by the rich brown and texture of my bag versus his. To put it in simple words, you get what you pay for and what you pay for is amazing.

A lot of people at the hospital ask about the bag! Especially because it's such a nice color leather, so hopefully I've sent a few customers your way!

Gorgeous, durable bag

- By Nadia, Coppell TX
I've had this bag for 3 years now, and I absolutely love it! I have received numerous compliments on it, and its held together well over the years. I'm very petite (5'1"), and did not want a bag that looked huge on me, and this bag is perfect! It's large enough to fit what I need to carry, without looking humongous. I can fit my 13" macbook and charger inside, and there will still be room for some file folders too. I love the pockets as well. There is a large zipper pocket in the back that fits a file folder, a smaller zipper pocket up front that is as wide as the bag, but a little shorter in height, and a great little zipper pocket on the front flap that fits my wallet and is quickly accessible. There is also a small slot on the side that my iphone fits perfectly in, and 2 pen slots on the opposite side.

Review of STORIA Messenger Bag

- By Mary, Tulsa OK
I was extremely happy with the bags -- and I loved the little bags that they arrived in. The bags are gorgeous and are really wonderful quality. My niece and nephew were really surprised by such a nice gift and apparently they are already using them. I am excited to give them something that can become an heirloom and I plan on continuing the tradition for the rest of the family. (All 21 of my nieces and nephews, and my own daughter!)

It's a beautiful bag, and the pictures on the web were great. The only thing is -- I wish the magnets in the bag were stronger.
