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 2021 - 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; if you're searching for the heirloom quality piece of leather no other soul will have, look no further. No two pieces are the same.
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.
