ALL IN THE DETAILS
Designed by Beth Barror in 2007 and nearing its 80th new color, 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.watch now: a closer look
behind the design
From buttery soft to embossed & textured, leathers are sourced from around the globe.
It takes a skilled artisan an hour to hand-braid as many as 10 full-weight leather strips to create the strap.
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.
Always with an eye on "what's next" in the fashion world, we've introduced on-trend colors every season—we're up to 77 now!
