Bottega Veneta is a high fashion design house founded in the north east of Italy in a small-town of Vicenza by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro in 1966. The Italian label is well-known with its signature intrecciato leather weaving technique which applied to both ready-to-wear and leather goods. In 2006, Bottega Veneta even opened a specialized school to train leather craftsmen in order to maintain the life of the brand's craftsmanship and artisans. Without any brand label, Bottega intrecciato is already a logo in itself. The recent popular item "The Pouch" is the latest signature of the brand, which continues the traditional elegance and brings a modern element to the brand under the artistic direction of Daniel Lee, the creative director of the brand.
