Bottega Veneta and the leather school

Surely you all know the Italian Bottega Veneta brand and bags. What you perhaps do not know is the incredible craftsmanship behind these bags, like the "intrecciato" (woven) motif which is one of the brand styles since 1966. This beautiful and complex pattern takes two artisans and two days of work in order to complete weaving 70 leather strips.
In 2006 Bottega Veneta decided to support the Italian Leather Craft School of the Venice area - Scuola Arte e Mestieri di Vicenza, where it is possible to attend a leather program for learning the old techniques.
I personally think it is very important to save these craftsmanships and I am very happy to see that one of these mega brand is taking action.

Hello:
I am also very interested in the school and contacted the store here in Palm Desert, who put me in touch with the corporate office, where I left a message. Within the day I had received an email about my call. The woman who responded in named Cristina and she is the communications assistant for the US. I hope this helps and good luck! Maybe we will be in the same class!

I am interested in the course as well and would like to know if anyone has actually been through the BV course and what their thoughts are.
