Bottega Veneta was founded in 1966 in Vicenza, Veneto, by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro. Its Intrecciato leather-weaving was an instant hit. After the company was purchased by the Gucci Group in 2001, a new “stealth wealth” pulse revived Bottega Veneta. The company opened La Scuola dei Maestri Pellettieri di Bottega Veneta (school of leather craftsmanship) in 2006, which is located in its new atelier in Montebello Vicentino since 2013.
Daniel Lee has been the creative director of Bottega Veneta since June 2018, and Bartolomeo Rongone the CEO since September 2019.
