Owen Barry Leather Shoulder Bag - Sparrow
Sparrow is another Owen Barry bag that has been brought back by customer demand, but it has the benefit of several improvements following user feedback (we always listen to your feedback).
A well balanced medium-large shoulder bag with a deep zipper outside pocket. - the Sparrow is a godsend for ladies with busy lives.
Sparrow has a very generous rectangle base and deep side gussets giving her loads of capacity, however, despite being very well sized, Sparrow, is pleasingly lightweight which means that it works well when travelling or as a stylish workbag.
Inside there is the usual British cotton twill lining plus a zipper leather pocket and a large leather slip pocket, and the leather tab trigger hook for your keys etc.
The Sparrow features a turned deluxe leather shoulder strap suspended from signature OB rings, there is plenty of depth in this strap, making it perfect for both summer or winter wear (no problems worn over chunky coat etc.)
The OB insignia is proudly attached to the lower area of the side panel, emphasizing the very best of British handcraftsmanship.

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.

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.
