History: Founded: 1966, Vicenza, Italy
Bottega Veneta is an Italian luxury goods house best known for its leather goods. Founded in 1966, it was purchased in 2001 by Gucci Group, now a part of the French multinational group Kering. Bottega Veneta is headquartered in Vicenza, in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy by Vittorio and Laura Moltedo.
The name Bottega Veneta means “Venetian shop” and (I'm not sure why but I thought it was a much more exotic meaning than that when I bought my evening Knot clutch all those years ago), the company began to produce artisanal leather goods. The company’s artisans developed a leather-weaving technique, called intrecciato, that remains a signature of the brand and which I go into in separate detail below. 
Over time Bottega Veneta’s recognition grew, thanks to the quality of its craftsmanship and the appeal of its discreet, no-logo design. In the 1970s, the company began advertising with the tag line “When your own initials are enough”. By the early 1980s, Bottega Veneta was a favourite of the international jet set. Andy Warhol, who did his Christmas shopping in the New York boutique, made a short film for the company in 1980s. Renzo Zengiaro left Bottega Veneta in the late 1970s. Michele Taddei departed a few years later. Vittorio and Laura Moltedo (Laura had previously been married to Taddei) moved from New York to Vicenza to run the company. Over time, Bottega Veneta’s fortunes declined and, by the 1990s, the brand had abandoned its understated ethos and ventured into more trend-driven fashion territory.
The most recent chapter in Bottega Veneta’s history began in February 2001, when the company was acquired by Gucci Group. Creative Director Tomas Maier came on board in June of that year and presented his first collection, for Spring-Summer 2002, that fall. The German-born Maier, whose résumé includes positions at Sonia Rykiel and Hermès, set about returning the brand to its original identity. He removed visible logos from the brand’s products, highlighted the signature intrecciato weave prominently, and returned the company’s focus to artisanal production.
In the years since, Bottega Veneta has introduced additions to the collection, including fine jewelry, eyewear, home fragrance, and furniture, while continuing to offer an assortment of handbags, shoes, small leather goods, luggage, home items, and gifts. Bottega Veneta presented its first women’s ready-to-wear runway show in February 2005 and its first men’s runway show in June 2006. Today, ready-to-wear and furniture presentations are held in the corporate offices in Milan.
In Summer 2006, in recognition of the importance of artisanal craftsmanship and the diminishing number of master leatherworkers in Italy, Bottega Veneta opened the Scuola della Pelletteria, a school to train and support future generations of leather artisans, amazing this I think. 
Explained in better finer detail below, of course, Intrecciato is an elegant means to strengthen soft leather, it was the starting point for Bottega Veneta’s evolution, and to this day continues to be one of the most recognizable elements of the brand. From nappa to crocodile to karung, the result is always the same. Intrecciato is a material in its own right.

One of the staples for Bottega Veneta is Intrecciato. Intrecciato is the technique of weaving the leather..............
Intrecciato is what we all know Bottega bags to look like, the woven design called Intrecciato is a heritage, this is a little of it explained and why they still use the style today so synonymous with the brand.
The history of how the intrecciato was created is actually very interesting. The technique was created by Bottega Veneta in the late 1960′s. Historically, the Veneto region specialized in producing ready-to-wear, not accessories. When Bottega Veneta began manufacturing, the sewing machines in the workshops were designed to work with cloth not leather. The artisans had to use super fine leather to get under the needle. The leather they used was then woven into the intrecciato pattern to make the material stronger and more durable for accessories.
Intrecciato is used across most Bottega Veneta categories.
