Founded in Italy in 1966, Bottega Veneta gained popularity in the 1970s and 80s for its handwoven leather bags often featuring the signature intrecciato leather-weaving technique. The British trio of designer Giles Deacon, accessories designer Stuart Vevers, and stylist Katie Grand joined the company in 2000, bringing a decidedly modern and experimental edge to the label. Upon its purchase by the Gucci Group in 2001, German-born Tomas Maier became Bottega Veneta's creative director developing for the brand a louche, sophisticated and luxurious personality.

Stockists include Matches Fashion, Browns, Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman.
