At Bottega Manifatturiera Borse we are convinced that luxury and sustainability inextricably belong together.We are influenced by a traditional understanding of luxury which we strongly relate to limitation and restriction. Luxury is related to rarity. Produced by nature or human genius, luxury is going beyond human time boundary. It keeps its intrinsic value and aura for eternity. At Bottega Manifatturiera Borse we are convinced that this understanding of luxury is very modern and future orientated. We live luxury driven through a perception of durability and what is nowadays increasingly known under sustainability.
At Bottega Manifatturiera Borse we see a strong convergence between luxury and sustainability. Both aspects focus on rarity, fragility and beauty. We are convinced that luxury leather handbags cannot be produced under disgraceful levels of pollution and unfair labour practices. Luxury handbags are based on objective rarity –rare skins, rare leathers, rare materials,rare hardware, etc. Bottega Manifatturiera Borse is committed to the sustainability of its resources. This belongs to its history and values.
