When we think of luxury goods, the first quality that comes to our mind is “craftsmanship.” And one of our favorite brands that continues to perform amazingly well in that category is Bottega Veneta.
The 50 year old Italian luxury brand has always been focused on providing customers with supreme workmanship. Just to show how serious they are, here’s a key fact: the artisans who produce Bottega Veneta’s handbags are required to have 15 years of training in order to make one final bag (according to an interview with the creative director on CNN).
Olimpia, one of their Spring-Summer handbag collections, showcases the detailed work and capability of Italian artisans.
Inspired by the Teatro Olimpico, the magnificent theater in Vicenza, Italy, these bags are strikingly beautiful, but never too showy. The canvas of the bag is crafted in Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato and offset by a hand-stitched array of Tobu ‘wing’ accents to give 3D effect / texture.
The Olimpia bag is priced at $5250 and comes in 3 different colors: Nero, Flamingo, and Ciel.
