This luxurious tote is the rare original Raffia Nero Tote, a fine example of the iconic Bottega Veneta Totes. Since 1966 from Vicenza, Italy; Bottega Veneta has made some of the most coveted, high-end designs today. The soft soothing feel of Raffia topped with the distinctive textured Calfskin leather trim makes this one Bottega you will enjoy. It is from a private collection and it is in pristine condition.
In the colour of Black, it has that look that will show without question that this is indeed a special designer handbag. This BV is very large so please make note of the dimensions.
Looking closely at the dual Calfskin leather handles, you will see the cross pattern embossed that is symbolic of Bottega Veneta’s Intrecciato woven leather. And then the finely woven Raffia, the pattern is so intricate, there will be no doubt whenever and wherever you carry this stunning BV.
Look inside and you are greeted with the bright Beige fabric lining. It is immaculate with no odours and not one ink mark. Pull the zipper for the security pocket and it is flawless, as well.
This is a vintage, pre-certificate/numbered BV however, the “Made in Italy” is stamped on the lower strap on the pocket side. Also, look closely at the font with the BV name and take note of the upper and lower hooks of the E’s and how they slant forward and the hooks on the crown of the T’s slant outward. And finally, the name is embossed convex as opposed to concave. Clear indicators of vintage BV authenticity.
Outside, the Raffia and the Calfskin trim is thick and rich with a muted shine and feel that we love. This is a quality that will bring many looks. The colour is full and supple. The straps can allow this Bottega to be shoulder carried. This is a very well-designed handbag.
In the style of a true tote, it allows you to carry much more than it appears without stressing the style. The bottom is perfect and all stitches are tight. Seldom do you find a BV of this vintage in such splendid, like-new condition, especially inside.
It measures in at 13L tapering to 18” at the top x 12” H x 6 ½” D and the dual handles afford a 10” drop from your shoulder.
