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".

What do these numbers mean?

Sadly, this iconic messenger is no longer being produced by Campomaggi ... and we only have one bag left! This one is discounted not because of any defects, but because the distressing process yielded some interesting results that not everyone will appreciate: namely, a.) 3 small, faint pinkish discolorations on the front, and b.) dark streaks/striations on the front pockets under the flap, and side and bottom of the bag. Here is your chance to own one of the true Campomaggi classics at a reduced price!

This soft leather messenger makes a great organizer bag, with lots of pockets and a form that molds to your body. Its soft and supple design lends itself to a wide array of uses: as a book bag, man bag, large purse, camera bag, gym bag ... you get the idea! The FERRANDI also comes in Campomaggi's signature distressed leather. Although it is does not have the softness or flexbility of the soft calfskin, the versatility of the bag remains the same. With some time and usage, the distressed leather will become soft and buttery to the touch. Most commonly purchased as a camera and messenger bag, the FERRANDI works well in any situation.

Comes in two leather types: Distressed with a rugged, vintage look, and Soft, which, as the name suggest, is super soft calfskin leather.

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.

  • Handmade with 100% Italian leather
  • One main zippered compartment
  • Two gusseted organizer pockets underneath the flap
  • Zippered pocket in the back
  • One zippered interior pocket on the back wall
  • Two small interior accessory pockets and pen loops on the front wall
  • Two open pockets on the sides
  • Comfortable, adjustable cotton strap
  • Extra-long leather zipper pulls
  • Leather badges on back and inside of bag add character
  • Distressed hardware for an old-world, worn-in look

Bag of Dreams

- By bronwyn, Paddington AU
This bag is capacious, soft and just perfect size to use as my large everyday handbag. Pockets and zips in all of the right places. It is also an object of great beauty... and so so tactile

Review for Ferrandi

- By Carsten, Hadsten DK
I have just got the lovely Ferrandi leather bag. I will just say it's absolutely gorgeous, and fantastic quality. I'm very happy for it, and I can't wait to use it. Thanks for a great great service.
Updated 6/18/14: I just want you to know how happy I am for my Marcopoloni bag. I use it every day, and I have to say that the quality of this bag, is the best ever. I have used it for over a year now, and you can`t see it. It makes me happy every time I use it.

Review for Ferrandi

- By Alex, Bronx NY
Just wanted to drop you a note to say this is one hell of a bag. It's so nice to own something original and not a mass produced clone. I was initially stuck between the distressed cognac and the vintage brown, I think I am glad about my choice as the brown is more subtle. Definite character in this bag. If I'm ever gonna get another messenger it'll be Marco's.

A Functional Work of Art

- By Chris, Tallahassee FL
The Ferrandi soft distressed leather messenger bag is the work of a true craftsman and also extremely functional. A rare combination today. I was a little reluctant to splurge, but this bag is worth every cent and still has that wonderful leather smell after nearly four months! I look forward to many, many years of enjoyment. Thank you!

Review of FERRANDI Messenger Bag

- By John, TOWSON MD
I like the look of the bag and hope to use it for many years. The bag is beautifully constructed and the leather is supple. It would be nice if the bag had a bit more body. Some stiffness across the back would make it easier to use. When the contents carried are soft, the bag looks more like a sac than a messenger bag. Internals: the bag needs a key ring holder inside a pocket. The inside pen loops do not work well. Contents of the bag push the pens out of place because the pen shanks are unprotected. Also, as the pen loops are constructed, pens can damage the lining of the bag.
For those of you seeking a bag with a little more definition (i.e., less sag), we now offer this bag in the Distressed leather as well!

Review of FERRANDI Messenger Bag

I'm in love with this messenger bag. The coloring & quality of the leather is superb. This is a bag that I will keep forever. The staff at Marcopoloni was extremely helpful with their expert suggestions.
