Owen Barry Cowhide Crossbody Bag Ariel & Pebbles - Stevie
Loyal Owen Barry followers will know that we always welcome, listen to and take on board our customer's feedback, because of this we have decided to upgrade the Large Francine.
Really, there is only one change - the pocket running across the length of the back has now become a zip fastening, offering you additional security, whilst still quick and easy access for keys, phone, travel docs etc.
Unlined with an internal slip pocket and trigger key tab.
Not much else has changed, super lightweight, slimline, flattering to wear, over or under a coat.
The Owen Barry insignia is tastefully placed on the leather handle close to the trigger hook attachment. This exquisite bespoke branding, whilst subtle still shows people that you have invested in quality, styling and British Made.
Handcrafted in our factory in Somerset, UK. Since 1948.

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.
