Luxury, fashion, furniture, craftsmanship, fragrances, jewelry… It’s difficult to describe Bottega Veneta with a single substantive. One of the most complete lines of luxury goods in the world was founded in 1966 and keeps the glimpse with hand made products, and an unique design on the collections of clothing, jewelry, eyewear, home fragrance and furniture, handbags, shoes, small leather goods, luggage, home items, and gifts.
The name Bottega Veneta means “Venetian atelier” and refers directly to the company’s artisans that developed a leather-weaving technique, called intrecciato, that remains a signature of the brand and was used in the production of the first Veneta’s item: leather goods.
Headquartered in Vicenza, in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy, the brand became part of the Gucci Group in 2011, when the German creative director came on board, he removed visible logos from the brand’s products, highlighted the signature intrecciato weave prominently, and returned the company’s focus to artisanal production. And the enterprise’s compromises with quality of production is so important that in the summer of 2006, in recognition of the importance of artisanal craftsmanship and the diminishing number of master leather workers in Italy, Bottega Veneta opened the Scuola della Pelletteria, a school to train and support future generations of leather artisans.
Clothing collections configure one of the the main collections of the brand, and they are idealized through the idea that attires can be at once tough-minded and sweet-natured. The collections ranges from angular, precisely tailored looks to soft, fluid pieces, all sharing a distinctive silhouette and a polished air.
One of the most exclusive services of Bottega Veneta is the brand’s interior designs. With an singular range of décor items, Veneta already signed projects for the Hotel Park Hyatt in Chicago and for the Grand Hotel Florence. The worldwide famous furniture brand Poltrona Frau also counted with Veneta’s signature. “In 2008, from this partnership was launched the Meta chair, constructed of seasoned beech and poplar wood and upholstered in exclusive Pelle Frau leather, the chair was designed for reading, with a high back, accommodating arm rests and a seat cushion that is soft and supple.
