About Go West Designs

Go West Designs specializes in custom handcrafted cowhide purses and totes. It all started in 2011 with my fascination for all things Western and some leftover cowhide scraps from an upholstery project. What began as an attempt to make a small cowhide shoulder bag has grown into a full line of custom purses, totes, iPad cases and makeup bags. Each bag is designed and made by me in my workshop at my home in Northern Wisconsin.


I love working with customers to create bags that are designed specifically for them. Custom options include: choice of cowhide, style and length of straps, conchos and decorative accents (including some you might have), suede fringe, linings to fit your needs, and even incorporating your brand or initials. 


Happy Trails!
