Breuninger Gerberei / Tannery Schorndorf Germany
Last friday I had an appointment with Mr. Breuninger the owner of the Breuninger Tannery in Schorndorf Germany. The Breuningers tann since 1552 and since 12 generations as red tanner (vegetable tanner), so from the specs they know their business. Already have received a couple of leather samples I really wan´t to see the factory and to have a closer look at the hides. They do only vegetable tann from german cattle and emphasize on the natural look of the hides.
I was really impressed from what I saw. The aniline tanning results in really characteristic hides by preserving the natural structure of the leather. Mr. Beuninger was really informative and helpful in explaining various aspects of his profession. Finally I bought some hides and reserved one. I guess we found another, or the supplier for future Feinschmuck products.
Finding family background for my grandchildren
My mother was Mathilde Breuninger the daughter of Immanuel Breuinger who was involved with the tannery in the early 1900’s. I am only trying to find the family background for my grandchildren and found your web site on line.
she is listed in the “ die Badnanger Breuninger “ book to show the connection.
Can you please return with a confirmation of the relationship and any other information of interest to pass on.
sent me an email and I can forward you to the mr. breuninger who sadly no longer has this tannery.
