Women’s Sonnenleder Handbag
So far, we have offered the Sonnenleder bags and purses in our range only in natural or black.
This season we are showing our true colors and have expanded our existing range by not only a new handbag, but also in regards to color.
For the important things and a bit more.
The most common opinion about women‘s handbags is probably that they are never big enough – but when they do have the right size, it’s too difficult to find anything in them. This bag offers lots of space, yet does not appear bulky. And it can open very wide, thanks to the zipper that extends the entire width. This gives a good overview of all its contents and allows to stow documents in A4 format in the spacious main compartment. Inside, the bag has a zipper compartment for wallet and papers as well as a pocket for a mobile phone.
A sewn-in leather band with carabiner secures the keys, which are always handy. The supple leather warmly hugs the body and is very comfortable to wear. The shoulder strap is length-adjustable using the carabiner.
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.
