Owen Barry Cowhide Crossbody Bag Bora Blu/Azure - Flora
This Flora is a version of our very versatile leather crossbody bag but with the addition of a glorious cowhide flap.
She is slimline and unfussy, whilst giving impact and utility.
Lightweight with sensible capacity. With a deep back pocket, ideal for keys, phone etc. plus the generous statement cowhide flap with magdot close concealed underneath means this bag is secure and ideal for everyday use.
The crossbody strap is fully adjustable it measures 145cms (plus the rings) at its most extended.
Unlined and hand-cut from our heavier "Bison" leather ensures good structure, whilst still pliable and tactile to touch, plus this glorious chunkier leather gives the surety of long time wear, this bag will become a firm favourite and has the potential to become another OB hand me down heritage piece.
The OB insignia is tastefully displayed on the crossbody strap, demonstrating Made in the UK at its best.Handcrafted in our factory in Somerset, UK. Since 1948.

Bison Leather is actually Cowhide - NOT real Bison !!
We use Bison to describe the characteristics of the skin (a bit like "croc" leather is used as a way of describing the reptile pattern or grain on a skin).
Bison is a heavier skin with a slightly more pronounced grain than our classic leathers, we choose Bison leathers specifically in our small leather goods and purses because it is more substantial and offers the ideal structure and support needed with those designs. Whilst Bison is chunky it still has a lovely buttery handle and tactile finish that it isn't hard or stiff.
If you would like to see cuttings of any Bison leathers to help you make your choice please visit our customisation page and send an email
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.
