Bottega Veneta is out to disprove all those cynics who claim designers and companies aren’t doing enough to train the next generation of craftspeople.

The Gucci Group-owned accessories and fashion house is joining local trade school Scuola d’Arte e Mestieri di Vicenza to set up an apprenticeship educational program for aspiring luxury handbag makers — the Bottega Veneta Artisan School.

Their website  has a great page called “Hand of the Artisan“. Very interesting to see all of the hard work that goes into their products and truly inspiring for generating ideas.

    Hello Don, I wondered where you had gotten off to.. It is good that companies, bot large and small train up the next generation. Too many skills are lost as it is. Cordially, Nehmah

      Hi Nehmah …. I can’t say as much for companies here in Canada but I’m busy training them at the local design college.
