Ladies shoulder bag
Small, strong, black. Compact shoulder bag.
Made from supple, robust, pit-tanned cowhide and kept in a compact size suitable for everyday use, this shoulder bag does it all. The two piping all around give it special stability, the corners are rounded so that they do not repel so easily. Inside the bag is not further divided and only provided with a side pocket, outside there is another attached pocket. As you would expect from Sonnenleder, the teeth of the zipper are polished so that nothing sticks to them and the zipper is pleasantly smooth. The narrow carrying strap, adjustable by means of a buckle, is fastened with two carabiners, so it fits very well, but can also be quickly removed if necessary. And he is long enough to wear the bag also diagonally on the body.
By its no-frills, sporty shape, it is suitable for a variety of occasions - a small all-rounder, whose in the barrel black through-dyed leather is becoming more beautiful and supple with time.
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.
