This premium Italian brand is famous for elegant leather accessories, particularly bags.
Their peculiarity is the special weaving intrecciato which cannot be confused with any
other. Besides, the brand is focused on the quality of the materials, experience, and
unique design beyond the time. The quality and utility say it all that's why they don't
need a total branding — you will never find a logo on Bottega Veneta products, and critics
call this brand «the hidden sign of wealth in the 21 century».
The brand was founded in 1966 by the couple, Vittorio and Laura Moltedo in
San Vincenzo (Italy). Initially, the two artisans created the Cabat bag which was made of
leather ribbons — in the 70's this bag become extremely popular. Bianca Jagger, Lisa
Minnelli, Cher, Barbara Streisand, Elizabeth Taylor and other celebrities had it. However,
during the 90's the brand was downtrending because of the crisis, these times can be
called quite. In 2001, Bottega Veneta as a part of Gucci Group re-entered the fashion
world widened its focus from accessories to something global. Since Tomas Maier joined
the team the accessories collection was complemented by collections of both clothes
and footwear for men and women. One should admit that it was him who put the brand
on a pedestal of the true luxury. Maier reconsidered the brand's concept combining
luxury with utility, comfort — with the highest quality, which arose the interest of
Bottega Veneta. At present days the production follows the main principle: laconic
design, the latest technologies, simple utility, and rich materials. It is noteworthy that
the historical weaving intrecciato came down to us reformed but still demonstrating the
specter of colors and natural materials.
