Large Cowhide Purse - Vermont
The Owen Barry large leather and cowhide purse, Vermont comes in a variety of colours and combinations.
Vermont comes with a cowhide flap on a leather body, but can also come in plain leather - so the choice is huge and to make life even more confusing there is also a Small option !!
With multiple contrast leather pocket and card slots, this purse holds your passport comfortably, it also holds cash, coinage, and really, too many cards - whoops !! - really it is so capacious that it can also make a statement as a tactile micro clutch.
The leather we have chosen for our Vermont purses has been specially selected by OB - we call it Bison (it isn't Bison it's Cowhide leather !). "Bison" is the perfect skin for our purse collection and is used exclusively for that range, Bison is more chunky than our traditional leathers, it has a plump, rounded grain finish, that is very strong and hard wearing, we have selected it because it is simply "fit for purpose" - robust but still beautifully tactile and rich.
The colour combinations that we have chosen are deep, strong and practical - we hope you like them.
The Owen Barry insignia is there right in the front, making up part of the stud closure, tastefully endorsing your selection of British Made, the finest quality and contemporary styling.
- Internal zip pocket

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.
