General Information

Olivenleder® by Ackermann.

The wet-green® tanning specialists have developed a comprehensive ecological tanning process. It’s based on one of the oldest crop plants, the olive tree. Its leaves contain bitter substances which protect the tree from pests and rot. These substances can be used as tanning agents. And it's only the leaves that are a prerequisite for their extraction. The leaves accumulate every year when the trees are pruned and are otherwise burned. They are processed as a syrup like tanning agent under food processing conditions, so one could eat it if it wasn't so bitter. The leather tanned with it is skin-friendly, and the manufacturing process without risks for health or environment. Depending on the finish, the olive leaf tanning of leather can produce leather with the most various qualities, from a rugged saddle leather to the supplest leather for clothing. Olivenleder® is soft leather and has an excellent grip, while at the same time it shrugs off water and is very durable. The artisans and craftsmen at Ackermann's in Lüneburg design their Olivenleder® products for us with simple forms and straight lines. The come without a lining so the velour side may shed some lint at first and colour could be transferred onto lighter materials. Ackermann produces mainly in Lüneburg, with particular product lines manufactured by a Czech partner.
Please note: It is a natural leather, its dye may vary therefore at first, but the natural process of ageing will level this and give the leather the typical beautiful patina. Please keep in mind that bags and rucksacks made of this soft, smooth leather shouldn’t be packed up to their capacity. Otherwise, there may be irreversible marks like overstretched zones from the contents, especially from hard, sharp-edged objects like books or pens.

Shopper Bag Quality.

At almost the same size as a serious shopper, a lot will fit into the undivided main compartment of this handbag. And the carrying straps are long enough to sling the bag over your shoulder. Smaller items like a wallet or mobile phone can be tucked away in the two side pockets inside the main compartment. A leather strap with a snap hook secures the keys and keeps them at the ready.
