Vendor Showcase: Burlap Bovine

1 of 3
Burlap Bovine helps you "differ form the herd" with handmade cowhide and leather accessories created in Sacramento, CA by owner and maker, Malorie Walker! What began as an innate passion for the beef cattle community quickly blossomed into a full-time small business, aimed at bringing joy and happiness to her customers through her handmade products, while giving a nod to the western way of life she grew up in. Raised on her family's commercial cattle ranch in Livermore, CA, Malorie loves to help her following by showcasing their love of cattle and agriculture too with cute, ready-to-wear and display accessories like jewelry, ornaments, and even personalize cowhide graduation cap toppers. Whether you are a 4-H or FFA exhibitor, an agricultural student, someone who raises or shows cattle or just someone who appreciates a high-quality handmade leather or cowhide item, you'll love what Burlap Bovine has to offer! While we wish we could see you in person this year, we are excited to visit virtually through the Cow Palace Facebook page at 4:00 PM.

Cannot wait until then? Hop on over Burlap Bovine's brand new website to check out all that Burlap Bovine has to offer!
