We have added to our Campomaggi messenger bag and business bag collection. Well, actually more than added to it we have expanded our collection to include some necessary gadgets for today’s shoppers. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize – but I am not sure if they meant that to mean iPad cases, wallets and belts! But it didn’t stop us from trying out these new items from Campomaggi to our 2012 New Collection.
The distinct washed leather look translates well into these Campomaggi unisex belts . Though the chain link with the leather woven inside is more on the feminine side – the distressed leather belt with the metal studs can definitely go either way – sexy and casual on a lady and rugged and manly on any guy. Either belt is approximately 3.5 cm high and is available only in the color shown here. These are most definitely accessories worth adding to your wardrobe because not only will they compliment any of the Campomaggi bags but they are the perfect touch for a pair of jeans – in blue, black or brown.
More on the masculine side are the two new gadgets – one is a Campomaggi wallet with a chunky chain which hooks to your belt loops, while the wallet tucks safely into your back pocket. Though there is a place for business cards and a zipped section – I can also see this as ideal for holding your tobacco, filters and paper. It has the feel of a mix between Harley Davidson Biker – the chain is very unique and a more country feel with the rich earthy tones in the leather.
This mini pouch from Campomaggi with detachable cross body strap will easily fill a plethora of needs – any time you need to be hands free, this gadget will fit the bill. It has a simple snap closure and is available in the dark cognac. There is a cell phone pocket on the external part of the pouch, underneath the flap and an unlined section for keeping keeps and other personal gadgets.
Finally a piece that everybody can use – male or female alike! This iPad case in the delicious washed leather (available in two shades – dark and light brown) has a security snap closure. The inside of this iPad bag is lined with a thick felt, reminiscent of the blankets used to protect horses while wearing a saddle – so it will surely be enough to give added protection to your iPad.
Sometimes a beautiful distressed leather and fantastic structural design is not enough – you need space, and lots of it. This messenger bag has all three qualities made of the signature distressed leather from Campomaggi and following the simple lines in the messenger bag design, it was easy to add inches to the right and left, up and down to create a super sized messenger bag.

Pro’s: Interior pocket with security zip for carrying a laptop, iPad or Netbook. The adjustable and removable shoulder strap for alternate carrying options. External lock on front flap.
Con’s: Though it is unisex, this bag tends to lend itself to a more masculine look. One must take into consideration that the interior measurements are not standardized. Some people have noted that fist few times they have used the bag the color may rub off to lighter colored clothing – however this stops after the bag has been exposed to the elements a couple of times.
What I liked best about the bag: It’s large and made of a sturdy leather. I liked the detachable shoulder strap for alternative carrying option (top handle or carrying strap), this make sthe bag versatile and convenient to carry light or heavy objects. Though in today’s world nothing is truly safe from prying hands – it was nice to have a security lock on the exterior.
What I liked least about the bag: Tough, because I must say I really like this bag. If anything it is the strong scent that the Campmaggi bags have at the beginning – it quickly wears off, however it can be quite overpowering at the very beginning.
And why not? You use vegetable tanned leather for your wallets, your designer leather jacket and your messenger bag so why not extend your good taste to include a bag or sleeve designed to house your newest toy – the iPad. The idea is to protect this piece of high tech from the everyday bumps and bruises while utilizing the bag for other things like your phone, cables, notebooks and whatever else happens to fall in along the way. Italian leather iPad cases from the Toscanella line offer high quality craftsmanship, elegant lines, sturdy vegetable tanned leather and the extras that make carrying your iPad convenient and easy.
Our first suggestion is the Toscanella messenger bag, with a cotton lined central pocket and internal zip pocket that will easily hold the iPad along with file folders, note pads, cell phone, business cards and writing utensils. On the outside of this all leather messenger bag with adjustable canvas strap are two easy to get to pockets – one of which is open and the other with a secure zip closure.
The next iPad idea is a simple carry all with front buckle. This carrying case looks like a professional business briefcase – but the difference is that with the two interior sections divided by an all cotton lining, makes the ideal area to protect your iPad, Kindle or small laptop (Size cm: W 36 x H 26,50 x D 4,50). The interior has several different organizing pockets for the cell, business cards, pens, keys and a secure zipped pocket for USB keys and other important gadgets. There is also an exterior pocket, secured with a leather strap and snap and lined in a suede like material, which makes it an easy to access holding spot.
The simplest iPad case in the Toscanella line is cut in an envelope style with a top zip for security. The slim size of this bag makes it easy to stash inside a large briefcase while assuring the safety of your iPad or laptop (Size cm: W 35 x H 23 x D 1,50). The top zip has a security snap to make sure it doesn’t slide open, keeping the iPad safe and sound inside. There is an open outside pocket for stashing items like business cards, an extra pen or your flight tickets to the next business meeting.
