Leather Paper/Fabric weights are ideal for busy offices or studios. These tactile weights anchor papers, fabrics and delicate materials without damage.

The stress-busting item for a busy office or student, this luxury organising aid is also a tactile, non-gimmicky “toy” that can help focus the mind in stressful (or, let’s face it, boring) situations.

Also, they are handsome door jams – these heavy little parcels make a much more elegant protector than screw-in springs and plastic stoppers.


Launching in 2024, the Owen Barry Paper/Fabric Weight is a standout addition, designed to complement our popular Leather Folders.

This versatile and elegant accessory serves various purposes; it is available in two classic colours.

Office organisation: you can keep your workspace in order by organising your office and maintaining a tidy desk. This tactile desk accessory is perfect for professionals, busy offices, students, or anyone who values a well-organised workspace.

As crafting anchors, artists, seamstresses/tailors, and craftspeople will find these leather weights invaluable as a "conservator's third hand." They provide a crucial anchor or support during delicate repairs and projects.

Are you an en plain air artist? Then, your next masterpiece deserves this gift.

The benefits of these weights extend beyond their obvious functionality:

They are crafted with a tactile design from luxury soft leather that can mould around uneven surfaces, effectively weighing down objects without causing damage to delicate materials.

As Stress-busters the soothing nature of the leather and easy grab handle make these weights ideal stress-busters. They are an engaging non gimmicky office toy for focusing the mind during stressful or monotonous situations, becoming an addictive asset in any workspace.

Door Jams - can we also suggest door jams? Beyond their "original" use, these weights serve as elegant door jams, replacing unsightly springs or plastic stoppers. They prevent handles from banging into and damaging plaster.

Crafted with care in our Somerset workshop, these weights are handmade and filled with gravel and sand. They contribute to our circular economy initiative by using upcycled leather excesses, aligning with our commitment to Green Growth endeavours.

Our craftspeople, with over 250 years of combined leatherworking experience, ensure attention to detail and quality. You can learn more about us here.

Encased securely in a bag sealed behind a robust velcro base, these weights epitomise functionality and craftsmanship, making them an attractive addition to your workspace or a thoughtful gift for those who appreciate the clever blend of elegance and practicality.

Shown here in Olive classic softee leather, they are also available in Iroko Brown Waxy Leather.
