The Campomaggi label was founded in Italy in 1986
The name is synonymous for hand-crafted, unique bags with a vintage look. Right from the beginning, the founders insisted on designing bags that would not just be good for one season, but would develop their true beauty and character over time. Their motto: "Time doesn't take anything away, it rather enriches".
Fashion designer Marco Campomaggi inherited his creative talent from his father, who was a sculptor. He began designing his very first bags while he was still in school. He started by creating bags from saddle leather and metal mountings, which he then sold to his school friends and along the beach promenade of his home town. His creations became increasingly successful, and his passion became his profession.
Campomaggi bags are made using a special, patented manufacturing process: As a first step, the bags are completely assembled from premium quality cowhide. Only then will the finished bags be washed in a container with dyes and additives, creating their unique and typical look. Moving the dyeing process to the end of the manufacturing process not only gives the Campomaggi bags their distinctive vintage look, it also makes every single bag an absolute one-of-a-kind. The designer leaves nothing to chance when it comes to his gorgeous bags: the differentiated colours of the exterior and the almost oxidised metal mountings enrich his creations, making them timeless.
Campomaggi bags are made of 100% premium quality cowhide that gains in character and beauty with each passing year. The more the bag is worn, the more character it will have. All of the metal mountings bear the Campomaggi logo: a little fish, which represents the zodiac sign and the two biggest passions of the designer: angling and eating. The colour range of the bags is based on muted, natural hues: cognac, dark brown, dark blue, and military green. But for those, who like to mix things up a little, Campomaggi also offers bags in dark yellow, red, grey, and beige. All interior fabrics are 100% cotton from sustainable farming and match the colour of the exterior, as they are dyed and washed together.
The name Campomaggi is synonymous for premium quality, hand-crafted products that become very special, long-term companions. In effect, they are the result of an entirely new life philosophy: A return to our roots that will guide us towards a better future. After all: looking towards our future also means looking back on where we have come from.
