bot·te·ga | \ bōˈtāgə , bəˈ- \
: the studio or workshop of a major artist in which other artists may participate in the execution of the projects or commissions of the major artist.
We love the idea of creative collaboration and the current global focus on craft and craftsmanship. It’s one of the reasons that over the past year, we’ve held several Study Sessions at our store where Cape Town-based creatives have shared a facet of their art with customers who’ve been eager to grow their knowledge and skills.
With Bottega, we wanted to capture the essence of this artistry and encourage the endless pursuit of learning. Or as Picasso put it: “I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”
Expanding on our AW colour palette, Bottega is still rich in colour, but brings with it a greater focus on softer neutrals. The collection is made from entirely natural based fabrics – silk, silk cotton blends, cottons and hemp linen – as we shift our focus to the needs of our planet.
