Ladies’ Red-tan Leather Bag
Discover singular products that may remind you of items you already know and appreciate; however, these products – exclusively available from us – feature a refined design meeting our clear-cut requirements.
Use it as a roomy ‘all-purpose’ bag. Or – with the help of the two smart handles – as a compact and elegant handbag with the side flaps folded down. Worn over the shoulder, the bag shows its third form, with the help of a comfortable leather strap which then ensures that the hands remain free. Whether as a purse, small travel bag for shopping or for the office (a standard folder will fit inside) – this bag will get the job done. The concept of functional versatility has been thought out down to the smallest detail. Two magnets have been concealed in the leather for folding the side flaps down and keeping the bag‘s shape, and at the same time conceal the mounting rings for the removable shoulder strap. The rounded leather covers on the "invisible" magnets are carefully sewn on by hand. The two strong leather handles have been reinforced with cord (also concealed inside) for significantly more comfortable grip and feel. An additional leather pocket with carabiner in the main compartment means your key ring is easy to secure and to fish out. From top to bottom, the bag has practically no outside stitching.
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.
