Owen Leather goods are handcrafted by myself, Harry Owen. I use only the finest materials and traditional tools and techniques to produce bespoke and made to order bags, small goods and belts.
By embracing craft and the needs of contemporary lifestyles, Owen bags and small goods are designed for now, with the enduring qualities of classic luggage. Beautiful vegetable tanned leathers are paired with uncomplicated forms, drawing attention to fine detailing, a high level of craftsmanship and the natural beauty within the material.
I have an obsession with leather articles which comes from both the seductive quality of the material, and a fascination with objects we carry with us. Quality leather softens, darkens and develops in a rich and beautiful way. A leather bag reacts to its changing environment, becoming intertwined with the personal narrative and the history of the user. Durable leather goods facilitate long and meaningful user object relationships, slow down consumption and create a deeper more satisfying connection between user and maker.
