My name is Kailey. I'm a western creative, cowboy gal, mama, and ranch wife. A few of my favorite things are old turquoise, tooled leather, tacos, and good cow ponies.
People often ask me how I got started as a leather artist, so here's the story...
Magpie West Leather Co. was born in a little ranch house on the outskirts of a Oregon college town. My working cowboy boyfriend (now husband) brought home some leather scraps and a rose stamp after work one day and said, "here, you're an artist, I thought you'd like this". A couple hours later, I'd built my first set of spur straps. It was the useful outlet for my artwork I'd been seeking for years; once I'd created my first purse I was hooked.
My inspiration stems from the wildflowers, livestock, cowboy creatures, and overall rugged beauty of the high desert west.
Fast forward to 2020 - the small and very humble leather business (started mostly to pay for beer in college) has grown into a place where folks come to find eclectic and one of a kind pieces. I specialize in western chic works of art for sagebrush souls, cowboy gals, and anyone who loves the west. From bags to trucker hats to funky fringe hip belts, if you're searching for the heirloom quality piece of leather no other soul will have, look no further.
I know there are a lot of great places to chose from when it comes to western fashion and leather goods. I am so appreciative you picked Magpie West Leather Co.! I strive everyday to make beautiful pieces of wearable art that are just as unique as the people that carry them.
