How neat! The San Francisco boutique had a stitching event where you could see a Cabat being made and buy special bags that you could initial. It didn't have the oversized BV 'house' though.

Wow, I would have loved to take those scraps off their hands - I can smell that pile of sweet-smelling magical leather.

How wonderful! Thank you for sharing!

It's quite amazing how we are all madly in love with a bag that's essentially made of scraps and off-cuts.

Lovely pics though - the giant bags are spectacular!

Ah, but what they do with the scraps and off-cuts is what we're in love with. The centuries-old craftsmanship that Bottega Veneta continues to bring to the 'now' for all of us to enjoy. At one point this craft was almost lost. BV was instrumental in bringing it back, and even opening a leather school in Italy.

Hope that helps you understand the mad love, Jbr12.

Thanks for sharing these photos with us! I really like the one showing the office cart full of fettucce, ready to be woven. That soft lavender color is really pretty.

I was there for about one hour, and I couldn't stop watching her hands, that was a kind of hypnotizing magic :smile:

Actually, I did take one strap with me as a souvenir :smile:
I asked her if I could take one, and she was really pleased and said I was free to have one :smile:
it's long enough to wrap loosely my wrist twice, I am considering making a hand-made bracelet, or, maybe, will use it as a strap for a bag-charm, when I find a perfect one
