The choice made by Marco Campomaggi in 1983 was a precise one: to create objects that last over time and tell a unique, personal story. Campomaggi bags do not wear out over the course of a season. They are objects designed to be passed down, from fathers to children, acquiring value over the years. A lifestyle that leads back to a return to basics, to dreams pursued with constancy and sacrifice, in search of a personal taste, to a luxury that is intimate and not ostentatious in which excellence, raw material and creativity intertwine to create authentic beauty.
Heart, Skin and Hands
“Leather is a living material, its entire story is written on its surface.”
Campomaggi bags are made using a particular manufacturing process that involves producing the articles using fine quality 100% Italian full grain natural cowhide, of indisputable quality and resistant to time and treatments. All the work necessary to complete a Campomaggi bag to the highest standards of workmanship is rigorously carried out by hand, since it is the human ingredient that makes each object unique, original and not standardized. Once the model has been built, the bag is subjected to the ancient vegetable tanning technique, a completely natural manufacturing process that uses the tannins contained in wood and vegetables, taken from trees such as the mimosa, chestnut, quebracho and oak.
