Marco Campomaggi has its creative talent from his father, a sculptor. Even at school he designed his first bag creations. He used saddle leather, metal fittings and sold his first Campomaggi bags directly to his classmates or at the promenade. The company has therefore already at that time attached great importance to design bags that get their character and value over time.
Over the years Campomaggi bags acquire more charm and softness – the more you use them, the more individual is their look. Campomaggi bags are finished with a special, unique manufacturing process. Precious leather is washed in vats of dye and secret additions to achieve the special patina. This technique gives Campomaggi bags not only the well-known vintage look, but also makes each piece unique.
Nothing is left to chance: the heterogeneous color on the surface of the pockets and the most oxidized fittings make these bags simply timeless. The fittings of the bags are provided with the Campomaggi logo: a small fish, which stands for the two biggest passions and the sign of Marco Campomaggi – his hobbies and eating. The textiles are made from 100% cotton and matched to the leather color, having been dyed and washed together with the bags.
Habits are banned, ideas have no barriers. The blend of different materials enhances shapes: wool, reminiscent of military blankets, or dark and light canvas are perfectly matched with leather by the piece-dyeing process of both materials.
