If you are a long-time fan of Campomaggi bags, or simply bought enough of them, you know very well that each Campomaggi bag is unique in more ways than one. This is particularly true for the distressed leather bags which absorb the dye differently, shrink differently, and sometimes even stretches differently. This, on top of the use of full grain Italian vacchetta leather, which in and of itself shows its character differently every time, ensures that each bag is very different from the next.
We realized this right away and immediately offered to our customers pictures of what was available. Last year we made the decision that Campomaggi bags should be sold as one-of-a-kind and that customers should be able to see exactly what they will be getting before they buy.
This immediately created a ton of work for us at a time when, with the birth of our son Marco, our productive time has shrunk. Yet, we think that this is the right way to do it and you will notice that more and more bags will show you exactly what is available. We often do this in response to a customer request. For example, yesterday someone wanted to buy the VALLA in Distressed Olive Brown. We had four in stock and they were all pretty different. Perfect! We took pictures of the front and back and posted them on our web site. Our customer chose hers and now there are three left for other people to pick.
