Bottega Veneta Cabat
A simple yet intricate design, the Bottega Veneta Cabat bag is one of the House’s most iconic pieces. Completely unlined and handwoven using the Intrecciato technique, the bag was designed to be as beautiful on the inside as on the outside. The Cabat tote is constructed of approximately 100 double-faced leather strips and takes two days to make because only one Bottega artisan can work on a single Cabat; no two artisans can pull the strips the same way. It took several prototypes and weeks to perfect, but the result was a lightweight tote with a body that holds its shape, whether it is empty or filled up. The only stitching to be found on the bag is on the rolled handle tops and the detachable pouch.
