Each Campomaggi bag is a prime example of Italian design art
In 1986 the label was founded in Italy. Campomaggi stands for handcrafted, unique vintage bags and wallets.
Right from the start, the founders insisted on designing bags that would not just be suitable for one single season, but would develop their true beauty and character over time. Their motto is: "Time doesn't take anything away, it rather enriches".
Fashion designer Marco Campomaggi has inherited the creative talent from his father, who was a sculptor. He began designing his very first bags while he was still in school, using saddle leather and metal hardware. He then sold them to his school friends and along the beach promenades of his home town. When his creations became more and more successful, he made his passion his profession.
Campomaggi bags are made using a special and patented manufacturing process: First, the bag is assembled from premium quality cowhide. Afterwards, the bag will be washed in a container with dyes and additives which creates their unique look. Moving the dyeing process to the end of the manufacturing process not only gives the Campomaggi bags their distinctive vintage look, but 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 colors of the exterior and the almost oxidized metal mountings enrich his creations, making them timeless.
Campomaggi bags are made of premium quality cowhide that gains in character and beauty with each passing year. The more the bag is worn, the more character it will get. All of the metal mountings bear the Campomaggi logo: A small fish, which represents the zodiac sign and the two biggest passions of the designer: Angling and eating.
The color 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 color of the exterior, as they are dyed and washed together.
Campomaggi means finest quality
The name Campomaggi is synonymous for premium quality and hand-crafted products that become your very special long-term companion. 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.
