Sonnenleder Leather Shopping Bag
In our quest to guarantee you the best possible reliability and functionality in products, at times there is the need to be inventive: our team develops tailor-made solutions in-house or recommends product upgrades corresponding to our guiding principles to associated manufacturers.
This bag is a real mover (note the capacity of around ten liters). All the leather pieces have been folded and sewn; the bottom is reinforced with leather (not just cardboard), the edges are handstitched with piping, making the bag flexible and giving it a solid stand. The straps are reinforced inside and can support the weight and maintain their form after prolonged use. Inside the bag is lined with strong twill (65% polyester, 35% cotton, weight 245 g/ sm) and has a small pocket with zipper. The bag can be fully closed with a metal zipper.
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.
