General Information

Three Bags.

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.

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.
