Sonnenleder Shoulder Bag
Article Number 69901
Mobile Storage Space. Variable.
When you're out and about, a spacious bag big enough to hold umbrella, sunglasses, cosmetic bag, documents, tablet and book, and maybe even an A4 folder or the bargain you've just picked at the shops, is not only useful but often a necessity. This bag is perfect for those "larger" needs – and its carrying capacity can even be extended if required. The leather strap can be flexibly attached to two pairs of metal rings positioned at different heights on the sides. If the strap is fastened to the bottom rings, the top third of the bag can be folded down. If the top pair of rings is used, additional storage space is created. When carried over the shoulder or across the body, the practical short handles can be folded down for greater freedom of movement. Valuables such as mobile phone and wallet can be safely stowed away either in a zipped outside pocket (22 x 19 cm) or two pockets integrated into the side of the main compartment. The leather band with carabiner keep keys safe and easy to find.
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.
