Leather Crossbody Bag - Westie
A bohemian leather slouch bag, Westie is actually more sophisticated than perhaps first meets the eye.
This clean unstructured voluminous slouch has more than enough capacity for all life's requirements, the sunken leather tabbed zipper closure ensures everything is secure.
Westie is fully lined with internal leather zip pocket; plus on the outside of the Westie bag there is a generous back zip pocket, keeping all your essentials against the body but also quickly assessable.
Topping at all off with a glorious feature guitar strap, hand cut from exquisite veg tan Lucy Leather (another OB exclusive) this leather slouch just oozes understated quality and style.
The Owen Barry insignia is tastefully placed towards the lower right-hand side of the bag, subtly showing passers-by that you have invested in quality, contemporary styling and British Made

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.

Glace leather has been used in our handbag collections for many seasons, it is an Italian leather, that has been selected because of it's subtly of colour and popular smooth glossy finish.
Glace is very popular, but you must be aware that it is quite a fine leather, that means light colours especially can be prone to getting grubby and will mark over time. Also the flat surface grain will soften or slightly distress with repeated usage, unless you are super protective of your bag, this is unavoidable; we don't mind this ageing and feel bags made from these skins become a bit like all of us, growing older and a little more broken in around the edges over time.

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.
