Bottega Veneta, the creation of new standards.
Founded in 1966 in Milan by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro, Botega Veneta is a luxury House of ready-to-wear, handbags but also shoes, jewelry and perfumes. It has the specificity of using a braided pattern in leather called "ntrecciato", which has become a signature of the brand and is now found on the outside of many of its products. Through its philosophy, it has imposed a new concept of luxury.
With its famous motto "when your initials are enough", Bottega Veneta represents a House of individuality and assurance in the purest tradition of Italian leather craftsmen. It represents sobriety, quality and refinement.
Formerly acquired by the Gucci group, the brand is now part of the Kering group.
Thanks to its close relationship with the tanneries, the brand launches many bags that will become, over time, iconic pieces. It represents the strength of Italian craftsmanship, which never ceases to reinvent the codes of elegance.
Distributed throughout the world in luxurious, comfortable and intimate boutiques, its products appeal to a sophisticated and confident clientele.
The braided leather cabac: Impelled by Tomas Maier, the intrecciato was created by Bottega Veneta in the early 1970s. This singular technique of braiding leather allows to make a bag that is at the same time flexible, structured, durable and unique. While each piece may seem biblically simple at first glance, it actually requires a wealth of craftsmanship and ingenuity to make. The creative eminence works hand in hand with the artisans and pushes them to excel so that each piece is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.
