At Beargrass Leather, sometimes it feels like we are running out of names.  Because each bag is a one-of-a-kind original, we go through a lot of names.  It does help when we can keep one style, think Sadie, and apply variations to that style.  We like to come up with Montana names for our products.  After all, our motto is "inspired by Montana, crafted by hand."  

Let's look at one of my favorite names, the Silver Gate.

 This half and half tote is half bison and half cow hair on hide.

When Sam asked what to name this, I thought about the bison and cattle.  Yellowstone has the biggest free roaming bison herd in the west, and it creates quite a stir with those ranchers in Silver Gate.  With nothing but rows of criss-crossed ranch fence between the bison and cows, the name just made sense.  Half bison and half cow with our trademark crossing stitch that reminds us so much of those fence lines
