From leather to paper

Bottega Veneta, the best known for its leather goods was founded in 1966. The company popularized Medici-era weaving technique intrecciato, that remains as a signature of the brand.

Bottega Veneta decided to respond to a growing demand of leather alternative by producing handcrafted bags with eco-friendly materials – jersey or Japanese washi paper.

Washi is a delicate paper derived from the bark of the fast growing korzo trree.

“I decided to make the jersey and paper bags after speaking with customers who wanted sophisticated, handcrafted bags that are non-leather and earth-friendly,” says Creative Director Tomas Maier. “We are a luxury lifestyle brand known for our handcrafted leather goods — obviously we don’t claim to be vegan. But Bottega Veneta has always worked to limit its environmental footprint, and we like to respond to the needs of our customers. This was an exciting challenge and I’m delighted with the way the collection turned out.”
