Sonnenleder small shoulder bag
With Sonnenleder connects us a long-standing partnership. The leather specialist at Lake Constance modifies some products especially according to our wishes. He manufactures this shoulder bag especially for Manufactum with a wider strap that lies pleasantly flat on the shoulder.
For your most important things.
A small and compact shoulder bag with a rectilinear design suitable for both women and men. Everything is in its place; documents up to size A5 or calendars will also fit inside. In the large main compartment, two further zipper compartments and two pen loops have been incorporated. The freely adjustable strap is quite long (approximately 1.4 m), so that the bag can be carried comfortably across the chest.
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.
