American West continues to lead the field in South Western style designer leather handbags.

American West hand crafted leather handbags are a rich mixture of classic elegance, contemporary chic and eye-catching detailing. Their distinctive South Western styling includes all the practical features needed for busy people on the go. Combined with uncompromising quality, these signature features emphatically maintain American West’s position as the leading designer of South Western style leather handbags.

Inspired by the rich leather saddle making days of the Old West, American West has created a full range of leather handbags, hobos, totes, shoulder bags, backpacks and more to meet every need of today’s fashion trends. The gorgeous colour palette subtly changes over time to acknowledge the nuances of fashion tastes and the hardware on all their handbags delivers the WOW that will turn heads. American West excels in printed cowhides and these are well represented in the collections.

The American West taglines “hand made one at a time” and “leather for a lifetime” reflects their unique story and heritage over 25 years. Their handbags are made by the expert craftsmen of the Guarani Indian tribe and each one embodies the spirit and story of the person who made it, from the hand stitched detailing to the individual hand tooled strikes on their finest, hand picked leathers. Few handbag companies stay around as long as American West and even fewer can match their passion for exceptional craftsmanship and customer service.

During its 25th Anniversary year in 2011, American West achieved the most successful handbag launch in ShopNBC network history, resulting in an amazing 12 sell-outs. Bob Ayd, President of ShopNBC said “The American West brand is truly a unique find in the national landscape of designer handbags.” This overwhelming success showcased these gorgeous handbags to a wider audience and their response was just as overwhelming.

So, hold on to the reins and take a ride through our collections! You will not be disappointed.
