Interweaving leather, style, innovation and exclusivity

Bottega Veneta has nurtured a new standard of contemporary luxury since its foundation in Vicenza in 1966.  With a language that is international yet at the same time profoundly inspired by Italian culture, the maison is renowned for its discreet but immediately recognizable approach, unmistakably emblematic of exclusive, quality craftsmanship. Starting from the selection of materials – noble leathers used to create objects destined to become part of the lives of those who wear them.

Tradition, but also innovation and creativity, the same with which, in the days when bags were rigid and square, made mainly from tough saddle leather, Bottega Veneta made fashion history with the intrecciato weave, a technique using light leather which could be made into soft, flexible bags. 

When Tomas Maier became the company’s creative director in 2001, he recognized the brand’s DNA in this signature weave, and immediately made it the key strength of his vision.

Steeped in the traditions of Italian leather master craftsmen, and long renowned for its extraordinary school, Bottega Veneta has become one of the world’s leading brands. 

Style, innovation and exclusivity are at the heart of the brand’s philosophy, which translates into a complete range of products for women, men and the home.

An emblem of Made in Italy at its very best, the maison’s understated luxury is the embodiment of the artisanal tradition of the Veneto, a deeply generous region, where timeless man-made projects coexist in perfect harmony with nature.
