About Us

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!

I love to be creative, work with my hands and love designing and crafting so I decided to form my business, Western Culture. The pieces that I make incorporate generations of skills, the art of handmade leather goods and fresh designs that make a statement.

The Western Culture Range

Western Culture has a versatile range of designs that are classic, western and boho inspired. We produce strong and durable hand-crafted leather goods and accessories at our studio in the Mudgee Region. We source our leather from all around the world. Only the most ethically sourced leather on the market is used.

Native American designs and the bohemian look and feel are our inspiration behind the Western Culture products that we create. Our eye-catching designs range from belts, bags, totes, handbags, wallets and earrings.

Every Western Culture piece is bespoke, handmade and long-lasting. You will stand out from the crowd when wearing our hand-crafted leather or boho inspired clothing or accessories.
