Unpretentious companion. For any occasion.
The clear, unagitated design language of Sonnenleder is also evident in this handbag, which is just as suitable for more formal occasions and the office as for the city stroll. It is somewhat smaller, but documents in A5 format, book or tablet still fit comfortably inside. Inside it is not further divided, but equipped with a large zippered compartment on one side and two wide slip pockets on the other side, which accommodate small items, wallet and phone. Sonnenleder has also thought of the leather strap with a carabiner for the keys (an, in our opinion, indispensable detail), on which they can get the keys out of the depths with one pull - depending on the filling of the bag also courageously. The bag is closed via a polished and suitably smooth zipper, which runs across the entire width.
With the enclosed shoulder strap you can wear the bag over your shoulder. It is eight-way adjustable and can also be removed completely by means of a carabiner. Those who prefer to use the handbag as such in the truest sense of the word will appreciate the pleasantly padded carrying handles. Also very practical: the bottom of the bag is reinforced, which gives it a stable stand. A nice detail forms the circumferential welting seam on 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.
