Founded in Pienza, Italy in 1972
Bottega Verde was founded in Pienza, Italy, a small Tuscan town between Florence and Siena, known for its natural, artistic and cultural heritage.
The first location for Bottega Verde was chosen in 1972 as a small herbalist shop nestled amongst hills, vineyards and wheat fields. It was here that Bottega Verde cultivated a passion for artisans to produce and sell high-quality cosmetics based on natural active ingredients.
Number #1 in Italy today
Bottega Verde was already an extremely successful business in the early 90s: authentic, sincere and dedicated to women, but with a great deal of potential to achieve more.
