THE KNOT

A ROUNDED MINAUDIÈRE THAT DOUBLES

AS ONE OF THE MOST RECOGNIZABLE

STAPLES OF BOTTEGA VENETA

Based on an archival design, the Knot is a masterpiece of form created in the 1970s: a simple rounded box clutch revamped by Creative Director Tomas Maier in 2001 with a new closure in the shape of a small leather knot who gave the bag its name.

Since then the Knot symbolizes the lively creativity that animates each collection, season after season, with numerous interpretations in fabrics such as woven Nappa leather, padded satin, sterling silver, and soft crocodile. Unique examples of the Knot include Ayers Butterfly Knot, Gems charms and Silver Knot, Porcelain and Ayers Knot. Certain styles of the Knot are extremely limited with editions ranging from 100 to as few as 25.
