One-of-a-kind leather Cross-Body Hipsters are perfect bags to tote around your essentials. It is handcrafted, one-of-a-kind created from a reclaimed cowboy boot and a half. These leather bags are adorned with genuine western conchos, beautiful beading and feature magnetic closures. The removable strap enables you to attach them directly to your belt loops, waistband or larger travel bag.
Measurements are approximately 9.5" x 6.5" with a removable 1/2" leather cross-body strap. Measurements may vary.
I hand-craft my handbags as unique as the women who carries them. Some purses have scuffs, irregularities or defects from the boot factory. This adds to it's character. I use recycled, factory seconds and irregulars so you get a purse made from unworn boots... now a work of art on your arm!
Hey there! My name is Chris Thompson. I am a professional artist, boot wrangler and purse designer. I am a proud Mom, loved daughter, Jesus follower, animal lover and slave to two cats.
I fell in love with the beauty of western boots about 12 years ago when I was at an interim job in the middle of career changes. When the “career" change turned out to be a “life” change I started making handbags from a pile of worn-out boots in my garage. Thousands of purses later, and dozens of new designs, I packed my lovelies up and took them on the road 6 yrs ago to Stock Shows, Rodeos and Fine Art Festivals in the Rocky Mountain and Southwestern states.
I've been called the "Louis Vuitton of Cowboy Boot Purses" which makes me chuckle and fills my heart. There's plenty of ladies out there making purses out of old boots. I wanted to elevate that... because why would I settle for what everyone else is doing? And why should you settle for what everyone else is making?
Yes, I accept commissions to make a special bag with your boots. Please drop me a line.
