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.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!
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!
Actually, I did take one strap with me as a souvenirThanks 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.
