Bottega Veneta was established in Vincenza in 1966 as an artisanal leather goods company; for many years, they were best known for their woven leather handbags, sold under the tag line "when your own initials are enough". They were acquired by the Gucci Group (now Kering) in 2001, and have since expanded into a luxury lifestyle company producing everything from ready-to-wear clothing to furniture. The current creative director is Tomas Maier.
