What Are Western Purses?
Yesterday we discussed how western leather purses might differ from other leather purses. But does a purse have to be leather to be western? Another good question. I don’t recall ever hearing of a clearing house for determining what purses qualify as western, and which ones don’t.
That leaves us determining for ourselves which ones qualify as western. I’m thinking that either tooled or fringed leather will be one of the most prominent indicators. But since we’re deciding for ourselves, if you see a purse that looks and feels western, I’m sure not going to tell you it isn’t. Again, if it looks like a saddle, probably a western purse.
