Hello! I’m Rachel, the founder of Western Culture. I discovered my love for creating leather pieces many years ago when I went looking to repair my much-loved hand carved leather handbag. My partner, who is a cowboy and an ex bull rider, introduced me to his friend who was an amazing saddler and carver. He taught me many leather crafting skills which I apply to my creations.
The Western Culture range that I produce are handmade using tools my great grandfather once owned. My great grandfather was a cobbler and my grandma was a milliner. I learnt many different crafting skills from my Grandmother. As you can tell, creativity is in my blood, so I was destined to follow this path!
