Established in Vicenza in 1966, Bottega Veneta has always been synonymous with timeless Italian craftsmanship. Creating a new standard of luxury under the tutelage of Italy's master leather craftsmen, the house's signature intrecciato woven leather was born. A testament to the brand's technical mastery, they opened its own leather artisan school in 2006. Under the direction of Tomas Maiers, who presented his first collection for the brand in Spring Summer 2002 to critical acclaim, the label has established itself as a modern fashion brand in its own right, with feminine designs taking on a newfound edge. The label's luxurious, quietly recognizable handbags continue to be meticulously crafted in fresh, modern silhouettes.
