Bottega Veneta Cabat

after 20 hours of traveling plus transit time
Monkey landed home - home sweet home...*aaaaaAAAaaaaa*
and got a HUGE surprise fr JS :))))))))))))))))

Monkey was then seen cuddling the brown box tied with leather ribbons
the giver aka JS was so anxious and rushed Ms. Monkey to open it
somehow I already knew wat it was.....matter of colors only
*hiak hiak hiak*

Bottega Veneta Cabat in Lagoon color!!!!!!!!!
*oh gawd I looked so tired like a witch*

u can wear the Cabat in 2 ways....
either the natural way or just pushed the sides towards the centre if u think it's too big
JS got the medium size for Monkey

ok according to him, this is my Birthday pressie :)))))))))
oooohhhhhh TQ TQ TQ TQ TQ TQ

I've been drooling over a Cabat for the past 2 years~~~~~~
yet to give her a name....

JS managed to source piece number 16 *my birthdate*
the Cabat in lagoon color is a Limited Edition of 750 pieces only worldwide
from the SS 2011 collection.
Retailing at RM 19,080
the latest release from BV
Cabat in cigar croco skin
I don't know this is limited to how many super limited pieces
the price tag is just mad crazy RM 350,200

all cabats are hand woven by their artisans
and it takes 2 FULL DAYS by 2 artisans to weave the intrecciato leather
well it is very difficult to describe it in words, the touch, the smell.....
the weaving are on both sides, inside and out so it is super meticulous to make
the Cabat looked so simple and yet it is not...

and today is her first day out....and Ms Monkey brought her to work
*sniffing the leather now...sniff sniff*
bottomline is....u won't understand till u run your fingers on one
