Continuing to love, support and discuss the brand, the Bottega Veneta fan base on the Purse Forum has helped our Exclusive Bottega Veneta Day come to life. The Purse Forum is the largest gathering of handbag enthusiasts world wide, as well as the most active fashion forum online. Our Bottega Veneta crowd is loyal and knows an astonishing amount of information. One of the most highly-coveted Bottega Veneta bags is the Cabat, which is discussed in depth in the BV forum.
The Bottega Veneta Cabat quickly became a timeless staple for the Bottega brand. The classic Intrecciato Cabat takes two people two full days to weave the leather into the seamless shape. There is no inner lining, it is a woven leather body inside and out. Another day is needed for stitching, applying handles, and finishing every edge by hand. Prior to these three days, there is ample time spent treating, preparing, and cutting the leather itself. A very intricate and time-consuming process, indeed. When inspecting a Cabat closely, one can sense the delicate craftsmanship that goes into its making. Nothing about it is simple, every stitch is sturdy and meticulously placed.
After having the Bottega Veneta Lilac Intrecciato Nappa Cabat in my hands, I understood all of the enamor. The Cabat is light, yet large and spacious. The handles fit perfectly over my shoulder without hugging my underarm. The body holds its shape, whether filled up or empty. The shape resembles an ordinary tote, yet this bag is anything but ordinary. It speaks to you, it is graceful, and it just works. Lilac is the very color we reviewed in the Campana previously, which I deemed perfect at the time and I stand behind that. The color is more subdued when paired with certain palettes and jumps out to look more purple with others.
The Cabat is one of those bags that ‘clicks’ and I now see why some own large collections of this design. We reviewed the medium size, the dimensions measure 9.8 x 15.6 x 6.4 inches. Clearly, I am sold.
