Leather Crossbody Bag - Dusty
Dusty is a very ingenious convertible crossbody bag - very Owen Barry'esque because of it's multi-facets.
With two independent zipper compartments that flap over each other to offer both access and security.
Both compartments are fully lined with metal zipper closure and inside leather pockets.
The soft yet strong adjustable crossbody strap is both detachable and able to be fully shortened, therein the Dusty transforms into either a shoulder bag or an extra large double clutch.
The duel colour Dusty's can be worn with either the accent panel on the top or glimpsed underneath.
This bag has so many ways of wearing, it is huge fun, super secure and very capacious.
The Owen Barry Insignia is placed on the front below the zipper.
- Adjustable matching strap
- Fully Lined
- Internal leather pockets
- YKK metal zippers
- Italian feature hardware
- Owen Barry Insignia
- Detachable strap on triggers
Dimensions: H 34 CM x W 30 CM x D 4 CM
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.

Owen Barry Cowhides are a signature part of all our collections, quite a few are limited editions developed exclusively for OB and will not be available anywhere else throughout the UK & Europe.
At this point, for the sake of clarity, we should emphasise that all our hair on products are Cowhide (not pony) and are 100% a bi-product of the food industry.
Acido is a stunning finish applied to the cowhides, each hide is individual, the hair has been removed at random, making every skin totally individual, where the hair loss occurs a finish/colour has been applied, our most popular spotting/. finishes being, Silver, Gold & Rancho Brown.
Tricolour is a description that encompasses a variety of natural cowhides, Tricolour, technically means including 3 colours, usually, shades of Browns/Tans, Whites/Beiges & Blacks to differing degrees, these markings are all natural and NO two pieces are the same. Owen Barry, select only the prettiest of cowhides, and our cutters hand select and cut them to ensure a good variety and attractive placement within every bag.
Printed Cowhides These are the most uniform of our cowhide, still 100% a bi-product of the food industry these skins have been selected for their uniformity (within reason, this is always a natural product) and then the screen printing finish applied - so, standard joke, there have been no Dalmatian puppies, Zebra's or Leopards etc. killed in the making of our bags, everything is just printed - very nicely printed, but nothing more than that.
Laser cut Cowhides The laser cutting process has been applied to the cowhides, patterns and styles can range from geometrical, thru floral and unclude things like "croc" finishes, this laser cutting adds another layer of texture and variety to our cowhides.
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 !.

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.
