| women eyewear+ About the Brand
Established in 1966 by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro, Bottega Veneta is an Italian luxury goods house best known for its leather goods. Globally known for its signature 'intrecciato weave' leather-weaving technique, the brand displays timeless aesthetic value and precision craftsmanship to the best. The period of 1980s saw the brands' business flourishing with celebrities like Andy Warhol shopping in the New York boutique, adding to the global appeal of the brand and its success at large. However, in the 1990s after the period of financial hard time, the house was acquired by the Gucci group in 2001, after Tomas Maier creative director of the brand helped it to return back to its original glory. With distinguished styles and forms, the brand conveys a sense of exclusiveness, elegance and craftsman skills that gives way to distinctive product line defined by the intertwined motif without using any particular logo which is the trademark of this brand. The first eyewear collection from the house of Bottega Veneta was launched in March 2003.
