Bothos Laborathory HK is the physical as well as conceptual location where the Bothos stylelines are defined, developed, and created. A team of creators, designers, and thinkers starting from an inspiration related to the Bothos concept and imagery search, experiment, propose and implement ideas. The Teamʼs creative research method was built upon the couturier approach of Bothos Laborathory in order to guarantee that every single accessory is realized “a regola dʼarte” or “to the standard or rule of the art” while maintaining the original style footprint.
Obsessive attention to quality connects the intellectual dimension to form and final product through traditional methods of master leather craftsmen. Exhaustive study and consideration of size/proportion permutations address the issue of the fit of the accessory when worn, striving to steal from and at the same time become closer to the realm of art.
“The Journey” and “En-Route Reflection” are part and parcel of the Bothos Imagination. The journey along a modern Silk Road, a real physical contact at the transition between East and West pregnant with exchanges, goods, ideas, cultures and traditions, becomes images of places seen and subject matter which itself contaminates the Bothos design.
Intense inspiration that often presents itself with a strong aesthetic personality characterized by themes that have inspired generations of Orientalists.
