Bottega Veneta originated in 1966 in Vicenza, Italy. The brand was founded by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro and its primary product was leather goods. Bottega’s roots tie it to a non-branded philosophy that gave its items a rarefied pith. Advertising with the slogan, “When your own initials are enough,” the brand established itself as an understated treasure from an early start. In the late seventies Taddei and Zengiaro left control of the brand up to Taddei’s former wife, Laura Moltedo.
The Italian leather goods company is a pinnacle of quality, and each piece is intended to meld into the buyer’s lifestyle seamlessly. From the iconic Intrecciato woven leather accessories, to the sleekness of each ready-to-wear collection, Bottega guards the threshold of opulence and taste. The core ideals of Bottega still stand in 2020, which hold that its items should not only be durable in the face of wear for years to come, but must also remain relevant in style throughout the life of its loyal clientele.
