I believe this treatment is from S/S 2018

Multicolor Intrecciato Microdots

A colourful new workmanship, called intrecciato microdots, adds a surreal touch. The woven leather features a serigraphic print with a flurry of tiny dots, creating a striking optical pattern that recalls moving pixels.

Available in styles shown, plus a backpack and an iPhone case. Photos from Bottega Veneta.

This is my favourite thread on TPF.
Countless happy hours have been spent scrutinising each and every post and picture.
Thank you!
Here's my small contribution.

The Intrecciato Appia Messenger (or "Pillow" or "Nodini") was available in two colorways, Monalisa (Monalisa/Atlantic), and Multicolor (Sunset/Mist).

Elegant and understated, the Cabat is Bottega Veneta’s most iconic design—a deceptively simple, seamless tote that is finished as beautifully on the inside as it is on the outside. This style is inspired by Venetian gazing balls, hand-woven from soft nappa leather and embellished with over 1400 hand-applied resin spheres. It features rolled handles and an interior zipped pouch with an engraved limited-edition tag.
Available in Nero and Mist.

Intrecciato Brio Messenger ("Nodini", "Pillow")
The iconic Nodini is reinvented in the new Intrecciato Brio workmanship. Longer strips of the leather fettuccia, used to weave intrecciato, are precisely pulled through and knotted to create a tactile fringe. (Shown here in Nero).

This treatment also seen on the Loop bag, both large (shown here in Steel) and small (shown here in Cement).

The Camel Komodo Struzzo Knot treatment in tonal shades of brown. Available too in black/ grey.
Beautifully FIERCE.
Description from BV's website:
"Crafted from ostrich leather, the bag is finely hand-embellished with an all-over knot motif in different snake leathers; this striking three-dimensional workmanship is inspired by the exotic Komodo Dragon and adds a powerful yet feminine note to evening looks. The iconic knot-shaped clasp is rendered in dark-gold tone metal."

F/W 2017. Steel (medium) kaleidoscope hobo.
'Kaleidoscope' treatment and motif. Limited to the Asian market (I think).
Press release in Japanese describes this as incorporating "BV's intrecciato technique and the Japanese kaleidoscope with colorful Grokuroran (silver and gold metallic parts). Featuring a detailed, feminine and modern design features. The design, which incorporates the kaleidoscope concept, embodies traditional decoration and contemporary charm. Outstanding craftsmanship is used in every detail."

Fall/Winter 2018, under Tomas Maier:

Making its debut this season, the Tambura is named for its drum-like shape. The soft, compact bag is made in Intrecciato Abstract workmanship, the brand’s most complex workmanship ever, which translates the look of abstract art into woven leather. The Tambura’s oversize zipper pulls and cross-body strap are also crafted in intrecciato checker. It can also be carried by its two short straps.
