Marco Campomaggi's bags are intentionally made to be
In short: if you are looking for an even-toned, uniform-looking, cookie-cutter bag that looks like it came off of an assembly line, look elsewhere. Those of you who love a bag with uniqueness and personality to match your own, look no further.
The leather used in Marco's rugged bags and accessories is 100% Italian full-grain leather - the finest quality - and the more you wear it, the more charm and personality it acquires. There are several varieties of leather used, which are:
If you are familiar with the Campomaggi brand, you probably know that for Campomaggi items, a Cognac is not a Cognac, and an Espresso is not an Espresso. You may come across an Espresso bag with a light, vintage hue to it - and you can also come across an Espresso bag with a warmer, chestnutty tone. This is the beauty of Campomaggi products, and it is also why we post photos of each individual bag in stock. Because you may not be in love with one shade of Cognac, but may find another shade to die for.
Let's go back to the part about the bag being dyed after it's been put together ... well, since the individual pieces of leather that make up the bag are not pre-dyed, it's impossible to know which parts will acquire more or less color. For example, you may see different shades of color in the body, flap, and pockets. Now, these characteristics would be considered a fault when you're talking about non-Campomaggi bags ... but only increases the desirability when it comes garment-dyed (fancy word for dyed after put together) bags. If you like a bag with strong, uncompromising characters, you'll want to look for these. After all, these effects can't be reproduced on command!
