Ladies leather tote
Elegant and versatile. Handbag and shopper in one.
Considering its size and functional aspects, this bag is a shopper. The supple, pit-tanned cowhide and the excellent workmanship, on the other hand, identify it as an elegant handbag - which turns out just a little larger and is therefore also suitable for the office or shopping trip. The double leather straps are comfortable to carry, even when the bag is full. The strap is slightly shorter than usual for shoppers, but long enough to carry the bag comfortably over the shoulder, leaving your hands free.
Sonnenleder has also thought of the small, helpful details: The undivided main compartment is lined with light-colored lining (making it easier to search and, above all, to find) and equipped with a leather snake including a carabiner for keys, two slip pockets and a zippered compartment. It is closed by a metal zipper, which has a smooth surface thanks to polished teeth and is very smooth. The attached outer compartment for small parts that can be grabbed quickly is closed with two magnets that are concealed in the leather. On its outer edges, the leather shopper is worked almost without a visible seam - to the bottom.
Leather from the Tanning Pit. Red-Tanned.
Sonnenleder in Bodman-Ludwigshafen on Lake Constance in the Hegau region stands for consistently purposeful, pure design. The meticulously working company maintains the most traditional method of leather production: pit tanning. Solely hides from southern German cattle find their way into the pits of the company. The tanning agents used by Sonnenleder contain, for the most part, decoctions from bark, roots and fruits. The hides undergo the tanning process in twelve pits with tanning broths slightly rising in concentration; the tanning agents transform the protein fibres of the hides into leather fibres in six to twelve weeks. In the next step, the tanned, then air-dried hides get a fatliquoring finish in a rotating barrel; the composition of the high-quality grease is a well-kept secret recipe. The finished leather thus has a characteristic, slightly light brown-reddish hue (hence the term “red-tanned”), which looks different in each piece. Day-to-day use and exposure to the elements change the shade and result in a patina, a form of natural protection on the surface. Eventually, the leather gains an unmistakable appearance over time. Even the thoroughly imbued leather acquires a shiny patina with use.
