About this project
We are Owen Barry, we’ve been making sheepskin coats, hats and gloves since 1948. All our products are handmade in Somerset by a team of skilled craftspeople. Our contemporary and traditional products are sold to luxury retailers all over the world, so we know a thing or two about manufacturing. But manufacturing in the UK is tough, so we have created a new product to expand our offering, we really hope you like it!
Most people have an iPhone/iPad/MacBook and everyone should have a case for something so expensive.
Because of this, and our deep-rooted understanding of sheepskin as a functional material, we have created a set of tablet cases that fully protect your device. They look incredible and use a premium grade British sheepskin from the United Kingdom.
Step 1 - Decide which case you need for your product
Step 2 - Go to the "chart of rewards" section below
Step 3 - Decide if you would like your item personalised. (The top row of each product item is the un-personalised item. The bottom row is personalised. )
Step 4 - Decide if you would like your item in October ("normal" price) or December ("early bird" price).
Step 5 - Make note of the reward number
Step 6 - Go to the "back this project" button at the top right hand side of the page
Step 7 - Choose your reward number from the listed items.
REMEMBER - All items over £20 get a free accessory case.
You will also be contacted afterwards by Crowdox to confirm your purchase requirements for colour of the thread and sheepskin and any personal message chosen.
• British manufactured and made by hand
• 15mm dense wool for the ultimate protection

Owen Barry Ltd has been manufacturing since 1948. Predominantly we sell goods in North America, Japan and the United Kingdom.
We supply companies such as Anthropologie, Madewell, British Made (Japan) and Jack Wills.
The team is 36 strong, with an average of 12 years service. We are proud to be a British manufacturer and proud of our hardworking skilled staff.
Our factory is based in the old Tanyard where Owen's father started the business in the early 1900's, we were lucky enough to move back here 4 years ago. In the office you can still see the tanning dye stains on the floorboards, we incorporated this character into the background of some of the product shots.
The funds we hope to raise from this project will be reinvested into training a new batch of apprentices, teaching them the traditional skills of cutting, stitching and finishing our full range of products. Developing a younger workforce is a key aim to secure the long term future of the company.
Sheepskin or shearling, is our key raw material and it is used in our designer range of coats/hats/gloves and also our lifestyle collection (our sumo beanbag is rather special!). We also make leather and cowhide handbags, this product range is perhaps what we are best known for domestically. The British weather is not as supportive of shearling outerwear as the US/Canada and Japan.
Our factory and home are still very much based in deepest Somerset and there we support other local businesses with all our packaging, logistics and consumable purchases. Your support for Owen Barry will be widely spread throughout our community.
Every product will be carefully constructed and stringently checked before being dispatched.
All products we manufacture come with a lifetime guarantee covering the quality of the sheepskin and the integrity of the manufacture.
We really do hope to work with you and appreciate you studying our Kickstarter project.
Any help sharing the project to friends and family would be very appreciated.
Risks and challenges
One of the key risks to the project is the 4-6 week lead time on the sheepskin production. As soon as the project is finished we will place the orders for all materials. This should allow us the maximum amount of time for the supplier, who we use regularly, to produce and tan all skins to meet the deadlines comfortably.
Another risk is that sheepskin as a natural product has some very slight colour variances from one batch to another. Because of this we would like to make any supporters aware that within reason the colour may vary slightly from the images posted. This challenge is controlled as much as possible by swatches of the skin that are sent to the tannery at the ordering stage.
The Tanneries we use are some of the finest in the world and they have a very very high match rate. So rest assured this risk is low.
DISCLAIMER - Whilst all the cases offered are very protective, Owen Barry Ltd, do not bear any liability for damage done to any product whilst placed in one of our covers. The intended use and conditions of use will vary widely and because of this the company is not responsible for damage or loss.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
