Women’s Sonnenleder Handbag
So far, we have offered the Sonnenleder bags and purses in our range only in natural or black.
This season we are showing our true colors and have expanded our existing range by not only a new handbag, but also in regards to color.
For the important things and a bit more.
The most common opinion about women‘s handbags is probably that they are never big enough – but when they do have the right size, it’s too difficult to find anything in them. This bag offers lots of space, yet does not appear bulky. And it can open very wide, thanks to the zipper that extends the entire width. This gives a good overview of all its contents and allows to stow documents in A4 format in the spacious main compartment. Inside, the bag has a zipper compartment for wallet and papers as well as a pocket for a mobile phone.
A sewn-in leather band with carabiner secures the keys, which are always handy. The supple leather warmly hugs the body and is very comfortable to wear. The shoulder strap is length-adjustable using the carabiner.
Leather from the Tanning Pit. Red-Tanned.
These leather articles are made by Sonnenleder from Bodman-Ludwigshafen on Lake Constance. Paying painstaking attention to the smallest details, Sonnenleder maintains traditional leather-making practices and stands for consistently functional styles and minimalist designs. The hides of south German cows are vegetable-tanned according to traditional methods and then air-dried.
The tanning agents contain extracts from bark, roots and fruits. In twelve tanning pits with slightly increasing concentrations of tanning liquids, they transform the protein fibres of the cowhides into leather fibres over a period of between six to twelve weeks. After tanning, the hides are air-dried and lubricated in an oil vat according to a well-kept secret recipe. In its pre-dyed state, the finished leather has a characteristic light brown, reddish colour (hence the term "red-tanned"), which looks different in every piece. With use and exposure to the elements, the leather changes colour and develops its own unique patina, which is distinctive of leather. Leather dyed with natural oils and fats in a vat also acquires its own shiny patina over time.
