ZAVATTI - Italian Leather Travel Backpack

Weight: 3 lbs 3 oz. (1.4 Kg)
Size: 14"H X 12"W X 7"D

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".

Customer Reviews

great travel piece!

- By Heidi J, St. Louis MO
I am completely addicted to these bags. Love this backpack! Great travel piece--exactly what I was looking for. Quality is amazing (like all Campomaggi items).

Italian Leather Travel Backpack: Distressed Olive

- By Michele, Westerly RI
I received my backpack about seven days after I ordered it. The bag arrived in a cotton "sleeper" and was exactly as described on the website, The leather was rich and buttery, I use the bag daily and receive tons of compliments. I love it! M

Absolutely stunning bag.

- By Yangyang, Singapore SG


- By Maria, Martensville CA
Gorgeous bag and have no complaints. I love the way it opens the way the material looks inside. The leather is beautiful and rich in touch. Many compliments I receive with this bag.

Zavatti backpack

- By Jennifer, Newport OR
Just received my backpack. Words cannot truly describe how extremely pleased I was with this beautiful, true supple leather which is exactly what I wanted as I am a spoiled brat! Anyone looking for true quality, superb looks and class, should strongly consider purchasing from you. It is a bit pricey but you should expect higher prices for quality products. Delivery was perfect, fast and again, I cannot praise enough how beautiful this is and oh yes, comes in a cloth cover for storage. Thank you very much!

My new best friend

- By Meg, Cheney WA
I bet I have bought over a dozen (expensive) bags trying to fit my needs for travel. None of them really worked. Too heavy, too large or small, whatever. This time I have finally found it! This backpack is luscious, a perfect size, and easy to carry. It is gorgeous too. Great space for organization. I love it so much I bought other pieces with the same leather. Everywhere I go in the world, I receive compliments on this bag. If you have looked wide and far look no more. The Zavatti backpack is an outstanding choice.

Beautiful backpack

- By Rita, Cleveland TN
Nice leather. Very useful item. Only suggestion would be to make magnets stronger and easier to snap closed. They pop open a little too easily. Otherwise, I love the bag.

Very Happy!

- By Steven, San Francisco CA
Excellent hand made beautiful bag, backpack, very fast delivery, and quick communication. I am very happy with the service and products offered by Marcopoloni! Steve L. San Francisco

Gorgeous bag!

- By jeannie, new york NY
Love the camo backpack that I just got. I have been using it everyday since I got it. It's perfect for my everyday needs and love that it's handsfree. It's also a lot lighter than I thought it would be so will definitely make for a great traveling bag too! The leather is gorgeous and love that the camo is a smooth leather. Of course, have to also add that the customer service at Marcopolini makes it a wonderful shopping experience!!!

Best bag ever

- By Tina, Claymont DE
I have been searching for a long time for a real unique leather bag and I finally found it. Love the quality and the look

Review for Zavatti

- By Pamela, Silverdale WA
I just received my Zavatti bag/backpack today. I love it! It has such an "old" look to it, and definitely a handmade one-of-a-kind feeling. The leather is absolutely gorgeous. My little ultrabook computer fits inside perfectly. Plenty of room for anything else I might want to carry with me as well, and I have a feeling I'll be carrying this bag around with me just about everywhere. This is my second bag from Marcopoloni, and I will keep coming back for more!

Review of the ZAVATTI backpack

- By Liz, Levelland TX
I take my Zavatti backpack on all my flights and it is just the right size to hold everything that I used to carry in my briefcase (except for documents), including my netbook. The two front pockets are big enough to hold my smart phone and everything else that I need to have instant access to. The backpack is made of a rich brown leather that's not too thin and not too thick, sort of worn-in, and that attracts so many compliments. I love it!

Review of the ZAVATTI backpack

- By Lisa, New York NY
Campomaggi are the best bags EVER. If I could own every single one of them I would. I will be using my Campo until the day they cart me off to the old folks home. This little backpack, in my opinion, is for women. It is too petite for a man. It is a perfect little everyday bag. The outside pockets are fantastic for blackberry and cel. Love it! I do wish the drawstring was a bit longer. On a side note, I bought my husband a Campomaggi bag and he refused to carry it at first. "That's a purse!" he cried out in accusation. I told him it was NOT, it was for MEN. Months later he finally picked it up, stuffed some papers in it and hasn't put it down since!!! Although he does call it his purse. ANDY (shouting from the other room): "Have you seen my purse?" which cracks me up. Trust me, you will never ever regret purchasing a Campomaggi bag. And Marcopoloni is the most amazing company staffed with THE nicest people. I have not encountered this level of customer service in a very, very long time. I would never buy a Campomaggi bag from any other store now because I want to support this company!
