Cowhide Crossbody/Clutch Bag - Thermus
Thermus - is another ingenious OB style, offering so much more an initially realised.
There are the double-sided zipper pouchettes, which frame the additional central pocket- this pocket is the perfect snug fit for your phone, or alternatively, keys, cards ? - your shout really !!.
The next thing you notice is the removable strap, the rings are concealed leaving a perfect chic clutch.
The slender crossbody strap itself is adjustable so it can be shortened to shoulder strap, offering a point of difference for evenings etc.

The Owen Barry insignia is placed on the strap, subtly demonstrating that you have invested in the very best of British quality, styling and manufacture.

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.
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 !.
