Confidentiality, quality, and craftsmanship: Bottega Veneta has been setting new standards in luxury since its inception in Vicenza in 1966. The brand is deeply entwined with the very roots of Italian leather craftsmanship, and has always been renowned for exceptional leather items, like the braided leather belts and leather bags from the “intreccato" line. The braided pattern is the unmistakeable trademark of the collection. Subtle understatement, premium quality craftsmanship, and simple, classic designs make Bottega Veneta products trusty companions for life. The well-known motto of the company "When your own initials are enough" expresses the unique and confident philosophy that is now applied to many of the pieces in the collection. The close collaboration between craftsmen and designers is unique to the brand, and remains at the core of the company's approach to luxury. The company was acquired by the Kering Luxury Group (formerly Gucci Group) in early 2001. Creative Director Tomas Maier was appointed in June 2001, when he presented his first spring/summer collection.
