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.
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.
