Leather from the pit. Red tanned
Sonnenleder in Bodman-Ludwigshafen on Lake Constance in the Hegau region of Germany stands for consistently purposeful, pure design. The meticulously working company still maintains the traditional process in leather production: pit tanning. Only hides from southern German cattle are used for this purpose. The tanning agents used contain mainly decoctions from bark, roots and fruits. In twelve pits with slightly increasing concentrations of tanning liquors, they convert the protein fibers of the cattle hides into leather fibers over a period of six to twelve weeks.
After tanning, the hides are air-dried and greased in a lubricating vat according to a well-kept recipe. Untanned, the finished leather thus has a characteristic light tan-reddish hue, which also gave the leather the name "red-tanned" and which varies from lot to lot. Use, sun and rain change the hue, and over time a natural protection forms, the patina, which gives the leather a distinctive appearance. The leather dyed in the barrel also acquires a shiny patina with use.
