This small version of the Border Calf Sphere Bag features the style's characteristic geometric shape, crafted from soft Nappa and impeccably hand-woven emphasised by a nuanced colour effect. Inspired by the nappa glass collection, the squared front flap design has been beautifully handcrafted in velvety-soft new calf leather and hand-woven intrecciato, all enhanced by meticulously hand-painted accents and shimmering mirror appliques on the clasp. Finished with a distinctive, coordinated leather and chain shoulder strap, the piece comes with a lamb velour-lined compartment and a practical stud closure. Can be carried by hand or over the shoulder.
Discretion, quality, and craftsmanship — Bottega Veneta has created a new standard of luxury since its founding in Vicenza in 1966. Steeped in the traditions of Italy’s master leather craftsmen and long celebrated for its extraordinary leather goods, Bottega Veneta has recently emerged as one of the world’s premier luxury brands.
The company’s famous motto, “When your own initials are enough,” expresses a philosophy of individuality and confidence that now applies to a range of products including women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, fine jewelry, furniture, and more. While Bottega Veneta continues to grow, the qualities that define it are unchanging: outstanding craftsmanship, innovative design, contemporary functionality, and the highest quality materials. Also constant is Bottega Veneta’s commitment to its ateliers, where artisans of remarkable skill combine traditional mastery with breathtaking innovation.
The artisans who produce Bottega Veneta's handbags in Vicenza bring to their work certain intangibles-hundreds of years of local tradition, an intuitive undertanding of the product, and a shared aesthetic sensibililty that is not just Italian but specifically Venetian-that can't be replicated elsewhere.
