An Italian brand which occupies an important place in the world of fashion.
The brand Bottega Veneta came into being in 1966 in Veneto, at the impetus of Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro. The name of the brand means "Venetian workshop" and its speciality is the design of luxury fashion items such as bags. The Italian label quickly became a favourite of prestigious global stars like Jacqueline Kennedy and Farah Pahlavi. In 2001, the brand was taken over by the global Gucci Group, which then became the Kering Group. Tomas Maier, who had previously worked at Sonia Rykiel and Hermès, was appointed the creative director of Bottega Veneta. He focussed his attention on the brand's original identity and artisanal style. In 2005, he presented his first collection of women's and men's clothing and then one year later, he debuted his designer furniture and jewellery collections. Leather bags remain to this day, however, one of the brand's hallmark products.
A strong identity in the brand's bag collections.
The Veneta bag designed by the Italian brand is one of the best known to be created by Bottega Veneta. And for good reason, it features a system of woven leather which is known as "intrecciato" and which would go on to be used in many of the brand's creations. The technique illustrates one of the most recognisable elements to date of the Italian brand, proof, if proof were needed, of its remarkable know-how. To complete the process requires no less than 10 different pieces of leather which are worked upon by two artisanal craftsmen for two days to create each new piece. The design is reinterpreted each year in different shapes and colours, making each bag a true piece of expert craftsmanship.
