I just found out that in our next Campomaggi shipment we are going to receive a copy of The Brander. The Brander is a book about successful artisans who allowed the writers to take a look behind the scenes. I remember reading the article about Campomaggi and it was full of insights that made me love the brand even more. In a way, it affirmed and expanded on the qualities that make the brand so special, but, on the other hand, everything was already revealed by the products.
I don’t know of any other products that can convey the purpose and personality of their creator like Campomaggi products do. When I touch a Campomaggi bag I immediately feel that it is the best bag that the artisan could have made and that is something that Marco conveyed to me when he said: “when my company was up and running, I took a step back and decided to make leather bags the way I would make them for myself, without worrying about any boundaries set by market conditions.
At a later stage Marco said that his ambition is to let us experience the emotion of the passage of time. I often remind myself of that and turn to my Colombo to have my “time” moment. After a few years with your Campomaggi bag you will know what I am talking about. Marco, for sure, has accomplished his ambition.
