ONA Campbell Crossbody Leather Bag Padded Leather Shoulder Strap Camera Case
The Campbell is an elegant and modern crossbody bag inspired by vintage lens cases and is a wink to our heritage in camera. Its simple silhouette is handcrafted of fine Italian leather by our skilled artisans in Morocco, and is detailed with solid brass hardware. The ultra-suede lined interior is designed to carry your small, everyday essentials with an added layer of protection. The Campbell includes a removable padded wrap that doubles as a lens cleaner. Adjust the leather strap to carry yours over-the-shoulder or crossbody.
HANDCRAFTED: HOW AN ONA BAG IS MADE
Behind the Scenes
ONA’s creative director Bryan Mochizuki shares a behind-the-scenes look at the quality and craft that goes into every piece in the core ONA collection.
Since the very first ONA sample in 2009, we have worked with the same family-owned factory in the Dominican Republic. It’s where we still produce every messenger bag, backpack, and camera strap in our core collection.
Producing in this way allows us a high level of craftsmanship, quality, continuity, and heritage. The woman who oversees all of the materials used in our bags has worked with our factory for over 30 years and can recall from memory details of every design since 2009. We handcraft our products in small runs of 100 or 250 pieces—instead of thousands at a time—which allows us a high attention to detail. And given the geographic proximity to our New York headquarters, we can work together closely and collaboratively.
Each bag is manufactured entirely—from uncut raw materials to finished product—within the four walls of our two-story factory. An individual bag can require up to 5 hours of total hands-on work to produce, with up to 15 individuals directly involved and at least 3 quality checkpoints. And as all of our sample-making happens in the same building, the team that helps us develop each new style can train and work directly with the craftspeople who ultimately produce them.
First, on the ground floor of the factory, all of the raw materials—full-grain leather, 14 oz waxed canvas, solid brass hardware—are assessed, cut, and prepared for assembly through a number of methods depending on the style. The materials are then carefully sorted and organised until they’re ready to be produced.
Upstairs, each bag comes to life—gradually, deliberately—through a number of individually-manned stations, each dedicated to specific pieces of the process: stitching large panels together, attaching hardware, fine details, edge-painting. Finally each bag is given one last check for quality before being placed in a dust-bag and packaged.
We are proud to serve a global community of photographers and storytellers, who value quality, craft, and process in their work. We seek to mirror that in every good we produce, through the people, technique, and heritage that we know goes into the final product.
