Bottega Veneta is a luxury fashion brand known for its high-quality leather goods and distinctive weaving technique called "intrecciato." The brand was founded in 1966 in Vicenza, Italy, by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro. The name "Bottega Veneta" translates to "Venetian Workshop" in English, reflecting the brand's focus on craftsmanship and artisanal quality.
Bottega Veneta gained popularity for its discreet, understated approach to luxury, which stood in contrast to more logo-driven designs of other luxury brands. The intrecciato weaving technique, characterized by its intricate woven leather patterns, became a signature of the brand and is often featured in their handbags, wallets, and other accessories.
