Nestled within a 55,000 square-meter park, an extensively restored 18th century villa serves as a mecca for Bottega Veneta’s skilled artisans, helping to keep the brand’s philosophy – hinged on individuality and confidence – alive. Villa Schroeder-Da Porto’s atelier, where light and space create a harmonised atmosphere ideal for working with precision, patience and comfort, is steeped in tradition yet at the vanguard with the highest standards of eco-sustainability. This is where understated luxuries such as the iconic Knot bag, made with a minimum of 15 components to ensure the perfect closure or the Cabat with its double layered leather, are hand woven before they reach the outside world. Hearth and home.
