Owen Barry Leather Shoulder Bag - Dudley
The Owen Barry Dudley really is the pinnacle of our collection, it is our ultimate signature shoulder bag, a modern and sophisticated must have, and especially beautiful in one of the various OB softee leathers, metallic or glace leathers.
This lightweight leather slouch bag gets compliments wherever it goes, one of its most popular features are the soft comfy leather handles featuring detailed rivet decoration and attached with our signature metal trigger rings, these contrast handles slip the over the shoulder easily, plus they are generous enough to wear over a heavy winter coat.
Another thing customers love about Dudley is the variety of internal pockets - featuring a huge pair of leather-bound slip pockets and a matching leather mobile/keys pocket - this capacious bag can carry almost everything.
With a magdot close and easy slouchy fit, it has the depth necessary to ensure all of the contents feel secure, lightweight and really enjoyable to carry, no wonder Dudley is our best selling bag.
The Owen Barry insignia is tastefully placed towards the top side of the bag, subtle but still there showing people that you have invested in quality and styling.

The Owen Barry Classic Leathers are one of the most popular leathers within our handbag collection.
Classic is semi-aniline cow leather that has been developed and hand selected by OB, it's super tactile, rounded, lightweight and hardwearing (with normal usage) and performs exceptionally well within the soft unstructured styling of the Owen Barry Range.
Because it is a semi-aniline leather, which is, by definition quite naked, you will see slight variations in the characteristics of the grain and subtle natural markings with our classic leathers, we feel this aspect enhances the beauty of our bags and enables the quality of the leather to really shine through.

Glace leather has been used in our handbag collections for many seasons, it is an Italian leather, that has been selected because of it's subtly of colour and popular smooth glossy finish.
Glace is very popular, but you must be aware that it is quite a fine leather, that means light colours especially can be prone to getting grubby and will mark over time. Also the flat surface grain will soften or slightly distress with repeated usage, unless you are super protective of your bag, this is unavoidable; we don't mind this ageing and feel bags made from these skins become a bit like all of us, growing older and a little more broken in around the edges over time.

Heavy Metal Leather
Heavy Metal Leather - is our way of describing metallic leathers that go just that little bit further !!
Heavy Metals are traditionally skins with an extra layer of design finish, so whether it is the fine metallic reptile graining on the Palladium & Titanium or the sumptuous metallic dust on Rock, Mermaid or Oyster, These finishes just take the metallic leather palette to another level.
Heavy metals are quite often, semi-limited editions and will only feature in a collection for a couple of seasons. Most often they are combined with another leather from within our collection, thereby perhaps lifting a popular bag shape to a whole other layer - stunning.

Metallic leather plays an important role in the Owen Barry collection.
Often OB metallic leather is a stunning foil used with Cowhides and Heavy Metal feature skins, but actually, it is stunningly beautiful in its own right.
Soft, tactile and not too shiny, all of our metallic leathers are hand selected, the skins are very natural and only finished with a metallic top dress to a certain level of protection ( otherwise they become very hard, boardy and plastic looking - not nice!!). So with reasonable wear and tear, they will be fine, but much like us all, too much robust treatment and they will start to show the effects of life, we love that - a bag is for using not for looking at - and especially a metallic bag, let it shine !.

Smooth leather is a new addition to the OB 2019 Spring Summer collection, it has been included as it provides a matt vibrant fashion leather.
Smooth is a firmer flatter skin than our classic softee leather so bags and accessories that are cut from Smooth will have more structure or "stand" as we call it.
Over time the smooth will soften up and flex more, but initially, it is definitely slightly more rigid skin than the traditional OB leathers that have been hand chosen for their tactile, buttery touch or finish.
Whilst Smooth is firmer it is not heavier, the weight is very similar to other OB cow leathers.
If you would like to receive FOC cuttings of Smooth leathers so that you can judge for yourself, just contact us by telephone or complete the customisation form requesting the colours you fancy.
Our waxy cowhide leathers are always very popular, for the simple reason that they become more and more beautiful with age.
The OB waxy leathers are by their nature very naked and any protection applied to the skin is in the form of a waxy dubbing, this finish will undoubtedly allow the skin to improve with age, but as with everything it has to go thru an ageing process, when you first receive a bag cut from waxy, it may "mark" quite easily, this is isn't permanent, but the heavy wax is being scratched "thru" very quickly this will level out and the skin break in and start absorbing the oils and influences from you and it's surroundings.
We love this - it shows true leather at it's very best, but you have been warned once a bag cut from waxy has moulded itself to you, you may want every future leather bag to do the same - fact.
