The Artisanship Of A Best-Selling Handbag


Designed by Beth Barror in 2007 and recolored more than 80 times, the Barbados Handbag marries a minimalistic hobo silhouette with an artisan-crafted strap. Like all of our handbags, our Barbados offers timeless beauty and remarkable functionality, underscored by the finest quality leathers, exquisite workmanship, and old world handcrafting techniques. Here, we’ll take a closer look at this bag’s strap, inspired by equestrian accents.

behind the design

The Leathers

From buttery soft to embossed & textured, leathers are sourced from around the globe.

The Braiding

It takes a skilled artisan an hour to hand-braid as many as 10 full-weight leather strips to create the strap.

Crafting Comfort

There's more than style working for the strap; with no cord fill within the braid, the softness helps the strap mold to your shoulder.

The Colors

Always with an eye on "what's next" in the fashion world, we've introduced on-trend colors every season—over 80 now!
