Setting the bar very high for any good imaginable, tooled leather adds a look that not only says “custom-made” but also “quality craftsmanship.” Everything from saddles (of course) to saddlebags, wallets to purses, armbands to even kitchen countertops (yes, you read that right), is given that special je ne sai quoi about them that practically makes us purr. And, what would Texas be without saddles? That would have been a sad state of affairs indeed – especially since it leads to a unique western lifestyle, and that’s what tooled leather is all about. It’s the stuff that dreams are made of.

This Dreamcatcher Festival Bag is a little more doable in the size and budget department for many of us that are into tooled leather (plus its portable and pretty!) Featuring “…signature Buffalo Girl embellishments with a slouchy, light-weight design that’s extra comfortable. Made of delightfully soft suede with skilfully hand carved and hand dyed rustic leather panels, it features a round Labradorite, known as the stone of transformation and magic,” this bag is a must-have for this spring and summer festival season!
