The Holy Cow Couture Story

In 2007, Brittany Pillars started “the original” hide fashion handbag company named, Holy Cow Couture. The humble beginnings for Pillars was making purses one by one in her parent’s garage. You could hear the pounding and sewing into the early morning hours filling the garage with fresh leather smells. When each purse was finished, they were loaded up in the trunk of her car and sold at the college she attended. As social media took off in the next decade so did “the original” hide fashion handbag! If you’re wondering how the name came about, Pillars says “customers would say, holy cow look at that handbag where did you get it?”, so I decided on Holy Cow Couture for the name.

“Everything is handmade” Pillars says. “Our process comes down to, a sewing machine, manpower, and scissors.”

That process may be reminiscent of those used by leatherworkers of old, but the sales method is modern.

While Pillars would like the company to expand to be an online presence that is known as “The Original” hide fashion handbags, her priority always will be quality and keeping it made in the USA.

Pillars says, "I like to have a splash of every type of high-end fashion, I don’t always want to walk around with cowboy boots; I want to walk around with a leather bag with some really nice pieces so I can wear my stilettos and go out on the town too!”

Today, her mom and sister join her to make this a true family run business with a store front, design, production and headquarters in downtown Lincoln, California. With a second location of a team of seamstresses’ in Oklahoma. This is where you will find a combination of country music and the constant thwack of a sewing machine acts as soundtrack to a manic scene where long tables are strewn with sheets and scraps of leather.

Pillars says “we’re not chasing trends — we’re creating them with some classy, classic and timeless pieces.”

I purchased this toiletry bag for my husband and liked it so much I purchased one for my son-in-law. The quality of this leather bag and how it is packaged and delivered is top notch!

Perfect Everyday Bag

Convenient and handy item. It is a little smaller than I thought. The color is not as bright as the picture, overall, a good purchase to handle those items that you end up forgetting or leaving, now you have a place for them.

First Class Toiletry Bag

I was looking for a dopp bag to give a friend as a Christmas gift. I looked and reviewed MANY before I selected the dopp bag I ordered from HCC. I was apprehensive as I like to see a product in person. I was impressed with the soft leather and workmanship. My purchase was well worth every penny. I'll look to HCC in the future for my leather purchases.
