Leather Satchel Bag - Ripley
Ripley is a well thought through unisex travel satchel or business bag.
Hand cut and made to the highest OB specification, Ripley is a versatile and very practical bag, originally designed for a male audience, it is being commandeered by businesswomen as well.
Ripley has loads of pockets and secure areas:-
- Let's start on the front, there are two deep gusseted slip pockets which are secured with magdot closure and then doubly protected by the deep flap cover (with another 2 magdots)
- Inside on the back panel, there is a zipper (YKK) pocket.
- Back of satchel = Zipper pocket set in the leather-panel which sits against the body, ideal for phone, keys, passport, etc.
The bag is fully lined with robust British cotton twill lining. The flap is backed with super soft lightweight suede, giving it a good weight and tactile finish.
The crossbody strap is an easily adjustable British cotton webbing, that it has been chosen to achieve a balance of structure, weight and comfort, ensuring that regardless of the contents carried, this bag will sit comfortably and not cut into your shoulder.
The Owen Barry insignia sits proudly on the lower front, endorsing British Made at it's very best.

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.

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.
