The Owen Barry Kickstarter Launch 

We have been listening to our customers for over 70 years & recently we have been hearing you guys shouting (loudly) for really stylish leather Man Bags.

We know there are plenty of "ordinary" leather backpacks and overnighters out there in the marketplace,  but, they just aren't cutting the mustard with a more discerning audience

Nowadays you are far more educated and selective about what you require.

This is what we have heard you want:-

  • A bag collection that is easy to use but makes a serious first impression both in your business life and your leisure time. 
  • Timeless design, so that your investment stays relevant far into the future.
  • Comfortable and practical to wear and use every single day, whatever the circumstances.
  • Eco - friendly, ethically and environmentally sound.
  • It must look the part, i.e. luxurious, great quality and individual but crucially isn't over-designed or ostentatious.

We think our OB Travel collection is offering all of that and more, that is why we want to shout about it, and that is why we have launched such a range on Kickstarter

Kickstarter is the platform where early adopters and design fanatics do their online shopping and we want those people to see, love and learn about the OB collection.

We believe the Kickstarter audience is the ideal consumer for this launch.  However, despite being very well known and respected in certain UK & global markets, let's face it, Owen Barry doesn't have a huge following in the trendy manbag marketplace! - Yes, the mums, wives and sisters love us, but stylish fellas looking for leather accessories  - nope we're not the first brand that comes to mind.

Well, hopefully with our Kickstarter launch that will all change.  Starting mid-May, our stunning softee leather travel collection will be available to purchase at Early Bird prices on Kickstarter.  Although you can see the bags here, if you want to take advantage of the phenomenal Kickstarter savings - up to £263 OFF!! you have to follow this link to purchase. 

There are some great deals to be had, we have priced it affordably, as we want the word to spread amongst this new tribe of consumers, we want them to love all things you do about Owen Barry.

  • Stunning quality
  • Lifetime guarantee - no quibble
  • Individual design
  • 100% British Made
  • Friendly customer service
  • Value for money
  • Very strong eco & ethical stance.

What is Kickstarter ?

For those of you who don't know what Kickstarter is (and I didn't either, up until a couple of years ago).  Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform, that specialises in helping designers, creatives and entrepreneurs launch new and innovative products to a receptive global audience.

Most of the products that go live on Kickstarter, offer a really good saving on what will be the eventual market price, this is because the buyer supports the project right from the start, enabling it to get made, so very often, unlike normal online shopping you will have to wait for delivery (whilst the product is made to order), e.g. with the OB project, delivery won't be until mid September through to End November (depending on how early in the offer your order was placed).

Early Bird supporters usually get both better-incentivised prices and the first deliveries, OB is no different.

So what are the risks with Kickstarter? - Well, when you buy from Owen Barry, very few, to be honest, because we have been about for 70+years, have our own UK based factory and have a huge knowledge of the skin, designs and manufacturing, there isn't much that can go wrong.

Even if the project doesn't get the 100% backing - YOU WON'T LOSE YOUR MONEY, If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged. 

If the project you’re backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline.

Some people have heard stories about investments that get lost and the products never delivered, I guess that does happen with startups, unscrupulous companies or when the actual manufacturer lets down the project designer.  I am not allowed to make an outright guarantee, but I obviously hope that will never happen with Owen Barry, after 70 years of doing business. I hope we aren't going anywhere and our customer service is the cornerstone of our existence.
