Hammann makeup bag bull leather
Sometimes a good thing forms the prelude to a small product series. Here it was our Weekender made of bull leather, which became so popular in a very short time that the Feintäschnerei Hammann now also manufactures matching makeup and toiletry bags especially for us. With their opulent use of materials and the same meticulous workmanship, they are destined to have just as long a life as their big brother. In this version with cognac-colored bull leather and the lining of sheepskin, you can get the bags only at Manufactum.
Extraordinary. Makeup bag made of bull leather
From strong, hand-flattering bull leather, the fine carpentry Franz Hammann manufactures this makeup bag. With the opulent use of materials and the elaborate processing, it is designed entirely for stability and durability and also visually matches the weekenders and toiletry bags of the series. A striking feature are the concealed metal brackets of the opening, which allow fast, wide opening. Another special feature is the bull leather used: the best hides from southern German and Austrian bulls are vegetable-tanned and aniline-dyed for this purpose in Italy. In the process, the pigments penetrate deep into the leather so that its natural surface remains visible and a beautiful patina can form over time.
The body is crafted with neatly turned edges, open leather edges are carefully smoothed, dyed and waxed, leather trim protects the corners. Inside, the makeup bag is lined with soft, natural-colored sheepskin, which is also used for the two slip pockets built into the sides. The extremely sturdy, wide zipper - also rare in makeup bags - comes from Italy, from a company that otherwise manufactures components for military and geological outfitters. Polished teeth ensure that it is very smooth.
Finest Leather Goods by F. Hammann, Offenbach.
The “Fine leather goods factory” Franz Hammann based in Offenbach (one of the German centres of leather goods manufacturing) is one of the oldest leather manufacturers in Germany. The family-owned company has been producing high-quality leather goods and travel accessories for five generations. The Hessian leather goods are as sophisticated as they are durable; some models require the use of old special machines. Hammann has decades-old experience in leather crafts, especially in producing leather bags and cases complete with frames and handles. Precise workmanship and high-quality materials play an even more significant role here than in leather crafts anyway. To ensure the quality of its leather products, Hammann produces at its headquarters (and has done so since 1864) while processing exclusively full-grain leather of European origin. Locks and fittings are made in Germany. Here too, the details make the difference: all locks and fittings are milled from solid brass and alloy steel and get polished by hand. You might recognize the mirror-bright surfaces featuring a shine that “drum-polished sheet metal parts” could never give off.
