Bottega Veneta: codes and labels

In this post we want to give you some feedback with regards to Authenticating Bottega Veneta bags.

In other words, what to look for when it comes to choosing a Bottega Veneta vintage bag and how to read internal labels, product codes and serials.

Bottega Veneta:
“Certificato di originalità”

To start, let’s take a look at the reverse of the “CERTIFICATO DI ORIGINALITA” internal tag. In english this means “CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY”.

Moreover, this tag is normally can be seen in one of the inside corners of an internal pocket or compartment.

This label comes from the inside of this splendid black leather “duette” bag:

Black Duette Intrecciato
“Duette” Black Intrecciato Bag

It shows:

192931 – Model of the bag

VFFA1 – Leather Code

1000 – Color Code

2007 – Release Year

Here is an example of an older model. A beautiful green intrecciato shoulder bag, which only shows the last serial number:
