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 !.

Smooth leather is a new addition to the OB 2019 Spring Summer collection, it has been included as it provides a matt vibrant fashion leather.
Smooth is a firmer flatter skin than our classic softee leather so bags and accessories that are cut from Smooth will have more structure or "stand" as we call it.
Over time the smooth will soften up and flex more, but initially, it is definitely slightly more rigid skin than the traditional OB leathers that have been hand chosen for their tactile, buttery touch or finish.
Whilst Smooth is firmer it is not heavier, the weight is very similar to other OB cow leathers.
