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.


New for 2024, the Owen Barry Paper/Fabric Weight is one of several items to complement our always-popular Leather Folders.

This versatile and elegant accessory is available in 2 colours; it is ideal for a variety of uses:

    • Organise your office, keep your desk tidy, and keep papers in check with this tactile desk accessory. It's a perfect gift for professionals, busy offices, students, or anyone who values a well-organized workspace.


    • Very useful for artists, seamstresses/tailors and craftspeople, these leather weights act as a "conservator's third hand," providing a crucial anchor or support during delicate repairs and projects.


The benefits of these weights lie in their tactile design, crafted explicitly for various uses. The soft leather can mould around uneven surfaces, weighing down objects but not damaging or bruising delicate materials.

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

Other uses include Door Jams, as with all OB products - the wear-testing always reveals an alternative use, here it's door jams - instead of unsightly springs or plastic stoppers, we use these handsome little heavyweights as door jams between the door and the wall to stop handles banging into and damaging the plaster.

Stress busters: the tactile nature and the easy grab handle make these weights an ideal office toy for focusing the mind in stressful (or, let's face it, boring) situations and an addictive asset in any workspace.

Crafted with care, these weights are handmade and filled in our Somerset workshop; they are produced using upcycled leather excesses, aiding our circular economy undertaking and Green Growth endeavours.

Our craftspeople have over 250 joint leather working experience, which ensures attention to detail and quality. You can learn more about us here.

They are filled with gravel and sand, securely retained in a bag sealed behind a strong velcro base.
