General Information

Chic for the City, Smart for the Office.

This handbag has Sonnenleder's distinctive, unpretentious style and is perfect both for a stroll through the city and for the professional environment. The undivided main compartment can accommodate almost everything – from A4-format documents and book to tablet, cosmetic bag and glasses case. A zipped inside compartment holds a wallet, another pocket provides easy access to your mobile phone. A key ring can be secured to an integrated leather band with carabiner for quick and easy retrieval from the depths of the bag. The bag can be worn over the shoulder using the enclosed shoulder strap with carabiners. It can also be carried comfortably over the lower arm on the short handle. Visible seams stitched with natural-coloured thread provide an eye-catching detail and contrast particularly attractively with the dark leather bag.

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.
