    With unlined woven leather bags as its signature, Bottega Veneta has long demonstrated its mastery of leather – and this strength has been given an even greater focus under its latest creative director, Daniel Lee. Exclusively available at the brand’s recently revamped store at Ion Orchard, the new Sponge Pouch is a playful take on The Pouch, a similarly shaped clutch that was launched earlier this year. It might look fun and fuzzy, but the Sponge Pouch requires serious work: Each of them is made over five days, and requires more than a thousand metres of slim nappa leather thread, with each looped stitch being individually tied.
