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".

If you are looking for a bag with personality, this vertical leather tote may be the one you've been waiting for. Rugged yet stylish, spacious yet organized, it is the perfect way to add a touch of Italian flair to your everyday fashion.

A word of caution: this bag is intentionally made to be imperfect. It's been distressed and then distressed some more by a unique manufacturing process, resulting in a downright beaten, weathered, and non-uniform look. This PATENTED TREATMENT 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
  • One main compartment with top-zip closure
  • Front gusseted pocket with faux-buckle magnetic closure
  • Extra front compartment with zipper
  • Zippered pocket and small accessory pocket on interior back wall
  • Cotton-lined interior
  • Double leather handles with approx. 9" drop
  • Removable and adjustable leather strap for hands-free carrying (cotton strap when indicated)
  • Extra-long leather zipper pulls for quick access
  • Intricate stitching and hardware details
  • Campomaggi logo badge

Giacomo Costantino Beltrami - this 19th-century Bergamo-native became famous for having discovered (what was thought to be) the source of the Mississippi. There is a county in Minnesota named after this explorer and naturalist.

Customer Reviews

Gorgeous bag!

- By Joanne, Weatherboard AU
This is the most beautiful bag with wonderfully soft, rich leather. It is clearly made by talented artisans who care about quality. The top zip ensures all contents stay safely inside and the external zip and buckle pockets allow you all the space you need to stow personal items where they are quick and easy to access. This is a bag for lovers of gorgeous leather and old-world quality!

Beltrami Bag

- By Katherine, Seattle WA
I am a woman and close to 70. This is a bag that can easily be carried by a man or woman. The quality of the leather, both in terms of look and feel, is what truly attracts me to the bag. It is clear that it will last and wear well. It really looks good. I bought it with the 1" leather strap, and am able to wear it on the shoulder or cross-body. It holds my 13" MacAir laptop, although with the extra snap case, it is really tight --I don't zip it. An 11" would be fine. When I first tried the bag, the zipper was sticky. I almost refused it. I was advised to run it a few times, that it would heal itself. It did. Perhaps the seller could do this before shipping, so that the first experience isn't off-putting. I want to add kudos for some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. Flexible, responsive, professional.

Great bag, amazing customer service!

- By Stacy, Mesa AZ
Daniele made my experience so easy I can't say enough nice things! He sent me pictures and measurements of the specific bag I would receive so I felt completely confident in my color decision. Shipping was super fast and the bag is AMAZING. love everything about my experience. I will definitely shop here again and refer friends!

Review of BELTRAMI - Italian Leather Vertical Tote

- By Miguel, Manati Puerto Rico
I believe your bags are not only well crafted but elegant and sophisticated to please anyone. The quality of the materials used and the handcraft make each unit a treasure to hold and keep. I am more than satisfied with my bag and encourage everyone to buy and support the difficult work of the artisans working with leather in order to produce such a beautiful product. I will keep buying your products for ever.

One very cool bag.

- By Tom, Portland OR
The Beltrami is SUPERB. This is what I call a “city bag.” A real man bag with room for a variety of things; the height allowed me to put my daily books and notebooks in the bottom then load a few things on top of them, with the front pocket for glasses and keys. I love the color: really really unique.
