Cabat bag Bottega Veneta: hand-woven bags with a timeless charm

There is a brand that most of all has managed to perfectly combine the classic style with a casual outfit suitable for any type of situation: the refined and sober style of the Cabat woven bags by Bottega Veneta . But how did the success of the Cabat bags, the most famous handcrafted leather bags in the world, come about? How much did creative originality play and how much did the astral combinations that make an object, a fetish, become? These are questions that are not easy to answer because there is no single commercial explanation behind such a great success. Surely one of the keys to this turning point for Bottega Veneta’s fortunes is linked to the skilful dexterity of high craftsmanship , refined by technical, aesthetic and qualitative research : these are the four elements on which BV builds its success and which have inspired the collections Reptile’s House . A style outlined by precious materials and strictly classic but feminine lines , in which elegance comes from nuances and details. There are two principles that characterize the production of Bottega Veneta:
  1. the rejection of fashion as indiscriminate consumption
  2. the supremacy of quality over quantity
So, when the Cabat bag was born in 2001 , no one from BV thought that in a few seasons it would become the cult object of the early millennium. Sober and elegant shopper , unlined and woven with soft calfskin strips. Since its release, the Cabat has immediately managed to be an indispensable classic in the women’s wardrobe, proposing an innovative concept of elegant sobriety, a metaphor of not appearing but being. It has established itself as an elite bag among woven leather bags: a bag that stood out and distinguished the wearer , becoming over time the subject of reinterpretation by the Venetian maison itself , ready to create it in many variations also in terms of materials , always new, always in creative movement.

The origins of success: Weaving techniques

Having now become a symbol of refined and traditional style, BV owes its fortune to the manual weaving technique : a technique they invented that over time has reached such perfection that it is rightly considered a refined art . Often the BV bags, among which of course the original Cabat woven leather bags stand out, are even appreciated on a par with jewelry. The BV intertwining is the perfect result of precise manufacturing techniques and careful manual processing. It is, in fact, a very laborious artisan process that involves the work of the hands of at least two people per product, weaving leather straps from time to time following a precise diagonal pattern that leads to the development of the bag from time to time through the work. of crossing of the skins. When it comes to weaving, the result is high-quality handcrafted woven leather bags or, on the contrary, products that would (sooner rather than later) end up being poor.   The woven leather can also overcome the pure aesthetic value , becoming a sort of added value, when, as happens in the Bottega Veneta models, it is a handmade process . Indeed, among the many types of weaves used, the method used by the Venetian maison returns the unmistakable and indisputable sign that it was really the hand of man to give the last touch to the accessory. This is because, despite the progress of techniques, some processes can only be done manually. For example, there is still no machine capable of cross stitching – a patented technique by BV for making woven leather bags.

The weaving, like all the other manual phases of the bag processing, requires skill and experience . This type of processing, which relies on the skills of the worker, also affects the choice of leathers which must be particularly soft, otherwise the awl with which the invitations for the string are made could tear the skin on the surface. The result of a lot of care is high-quality handcrafted woven bags in genuine leather that last a long time .

Reptile’s House: leather bags with precious weaves

Certain intertwining can only come from the hand of man. Like the signature of a work of art, they guarantee its authenticity. In the world of small Italian artisan productions , weaving is certainly the flagship of every collection. The woven leathers today enjoy a renewed splendor: it is probably its sober and not ostentatious preciousness that sets the trend once again. So Reptile’s House has made this laborious process the protagonist of an equally renewed “modernist” taste that combines the most innovative research on materials with the aesthetic modulations of the classic weave, thus creating the right appeal for an outfit that perfectly combines the classic style with a more casual and informal taste. Among the handcrafted genuine leather bags, hand-woven and of great taste, proposed by Reptile’s House, there is one in particular that perfectly makes the union between classic style and a contemporary “urban chic” outfit . This is the Julie model : a small handcrafted jewel created with a double panel made up of soft raw-cut leather strips hand-woven according to accurate techniques. They give the bag a gritty play of lines that perfectly matches a “trendy” color such as metallic black (also available in other colors) on which the thousand potentials of leather explode in all its vitality.
