Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta - Kering

Steeped in the traditions of Italian craftsmanship, Bottega Veneta has set a new standard for luxury since it was founded in Vicenza, in the Veneto region of Italy, in 1966. The rich history of the Veneto is a deeply intrinsic part of brand—with the art, culture and beauty of Venice at its heart. The brand’s most recognizable signature is intrecciato, the handwoven leather introduced in 1975, which is still used in both iconic bags, such the Cabat tote and Veneta hobo, as well as in new styles. The house’s core philosophy embraces individuality as expressed in discreet luxury goods made without overt logos. That idea applies to women’s and men’s leather goods, ready-to-wear, shoes, jewelry, furniture and more. In 2013, Bottega Veneta established its Atelier within the Villa Schroeder-Da Porto in the town of Montebello Vicentino. Delicately restored and Platinum LEED-certified, the 18th-century villa complex is a living testament to the brand’s deep respect for its artisans and ongoing commitment to sustainability.
