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.

Lately I visited the Schachenmayr Gerberei / Tannery in Bad Grönenbach to buy leather for upcoming Feinschmuck Buckles/Belts. Unluckily the rumors were right, the Schachenmayr Tannery is discontinuing to make leather, which they did since 1851. But the good news is that the machines, the knowledge and the recipes will be passed to another german based Tannery. Mr Schachenmayr will so be able to trade “his” great leather after his specifications, further to his clients.
