The intrecciato weaving technique is synonymous with Bottega Veneta. It’s the signature upon which the house was built, and over the years it has found news ways to innovate its technique to create stand-out patterns and effects.
For Fall/Winter 2020, Daniel Lee — the brand’s Creative Director — has added a new interpretation of the intrecciato technique, by using padded shell strips to create The Padded Tote Bag, instead of the traditional leather.
The Intrecciato technique was first used by the brand in the late ’60s. Thanks to a sewing machine’s inability to carefully work with leather, the brand looked at other ways the fabric could be worked into creating its accessories. As such, this innovative woven technique was introduced and resulted in stronger more durable products.
Large in size with durable top handles, this padded tote comes in an all black colorway and features a detachable zipped pouch on the inside.
The Bottega Veneta Padded Tote Bag is available now from Matches Fashion, retailing at £1,660.
