Bottega Veneta is an Italian fashion house founded in 1966 by Michele Taddei. The Bottega Veneta name means Venetian shop. The Italian house is most known for their intricate beautifully crafted leather goods.
The company's most iconic savoir faire is called “intrecciato”, a special technique of leather weaving.
The company really took off in the 1970s. The clients took notice of their beautifully crafted pieces and their collections were a success. The brand has always valued quality over logos and came up with their own tag line “When your own initials are enough”.
Andy Warhol made a short film for the company in the 1980s; it was one of his favourite stores in New York City.
The 1990s were a darker era for Bottega Veneta, sales were dropping and the company's image was too traditional for the extravagant 90s.
It wasn't until 2001, when the Gucci group acquired the brand and a rebranding was done that Bottega Veneta regained its formal glory. The man behind the Italian house's success is Tomas Maier.
The German designer took over the creative position and brought back the brands original DNA. A focus on artisanal products made in Italy. He also reintroduced the iconic “intrecciato” collections and made it part of Bottega Venata's classic collections.
Since then Bottega Veneta ventured into eyewear, luggage, ready to wear and fragrance.
To keep the art of artisanal craftsmanship in Italy Bottega veneta opened the Scuola della Pelletteria, a training school for future generations of leather craftsman's.
Bottega Veneta is truly one of the last remaining luxury house's to value traditions. Acquiring a Bottega leather product is like acquiring a little bit of Italian savoir faire.
