Sarah Bowman The Great Western

Working on new designs here at Cattle Kate we look to the past for inspiration. Inspiration from hollywood, modern western wear and great characters of our past. One lady that currently has our attention is Sarah Bowman, also know as "The Great Western". She stood over six feet tall and 200 plus pounds which gave her the nickname "The Great Western" a referrence to at the time the largest steamboat in the world. Sarah was strong and attractive with firey copper-red hair.

Some of what history tells us of her is she was a part of the Mexican War enlisted with her husband as a cook and laundress. Her bravery and spunkiness earned her much respect from General Zachary Taylor. Such stories of taking in orphans during the war, her sharp shooting skills and even being the first female to open a business in El Paso has us envisioning the outfits she may have worn!

We have been unable to locate any actual images of her but from research and stories we've read she was not your average calico sunbonnet wearing lady. She was tough and intimidating. One story says she claimed "loan me a pair of trousers and I will whip the entire Mexican army all by myself". Our Bowman Outfit named after the infamous Sarah Bowman will be available in our next catalog. Sneek peaks to come!

 

 

Silver City Idaho

A couple weeks ago some friends and I made a day trip to Silver City, Idaho. If you have never been or never heard of Silver City it is a ghost town about 2 hours southwest of Boise, Idaho. If you like old west ghosts towns put this one on your list to visit. The buildings are beautiful and the town which in its hayday had about 2500 people walking the streets is still much alive with history today. The western town is tucked away in the mountains and the feel of the era is ever present as you walk dusty streets. For more history on the town visit their website http://www.historicsilvercityidaho.com/ and this weekend September 14th, 2013 the town has an "Open House" and some of the great buildings and houses are opened up for you to peak inside. A great place to visit the yester years!

 

Western Clothing

Our western clothing is designed and made right in Boise, Idaho. We take inspirations for the past and add touches of modern design to create our Cattle Kate designs. Western clothing has so many elements to it. You can take from the old west the times when the skirts were long and life expectancies short. The high necklines, ruffles, lace details are all feminine touches we love to take from the era. Then you have your "Hollywood" western. Your embroideries and rhinestones and great colors! Western clothing has come a long way over the decades, Cattle Kate will carry on the past and the present in our new designs coming soon!

Django Unchained

We had the honor last year of working on a few garments for the spaghetti western Django Unchained. Our clasic Frock coat was adorned on character Billy Crash. It was a great experience for us and while demanding well worth it! The movie is done very well, if you have not seen it yet it is a must see.

Cowboy Boots....Big Business

We are happily located in Boise, Idaho. We love the area and the people. One thing Boise is in need of is a good western supplier of cowboy boots. There are few shops here that carry any and those who do, have small selections. Sometime in the future Cattle Kate would like to have a good selection to offer the community. Share your favorite brand of boot(s) with us, what do you look for in a cowboy/cowgirl boot?

New items

We are looking everyday for great new western items to compliment our western clothing line. Recently we have added new horsehair items such as our tooled leather and horsehair, spiral horsehair and concho horsehair bracelets all made in the USA. These bracelets all meet Cattle Kate quality expectations, check them out for yourself!
