If you've been following our Instagram, you know we are slightly obsessed with our new t-shirt line!
Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you (open curtains), Western and Co! All shirts are designed and curated by Hailey, the owner and visionary. I met Hailey a few years ago at our California Cattlemen's Convention.
This lady has herself some sweet style, adorable boys and some pretty fancy cows (oh, and an awesome husband, Ryan--sorry Ryan, knew I was forgetting something). We couldn't be more excited to introduce our wonderful customers to her new line of western chic tees; they're a little bit hippy and a little bit country throwback.
We couldn't be more excited that Serape is in style! If we could pick any pattern that represents our personalities, serape would be it.
Not only do we pride ourselves on bringing in items that are on trend and eye catching, but we also try to bring those in that have a story. Which makes us doubly excited for our newest handbag line: Hasta La Vista Exports.
About Hasta La Vista
Hasta La Vista’s handbags are handmade just outside of Lake Atitlan in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Each piece is handcrafted, reflecting the rich, vibrant and ethnic traditions of weaving, beading and leather in the magnificent colors and textures of Guatemala. The women that make these bags use methods that are dedicated to preserving their heritage, as well as their surrounding environment.

It is exciting, that what was once a small Etsy shop has now become RuralHaze.com. Often times it’s hard for even us to believe! While looking back to the past makes it seem like a total blur, there have been a few benchmark moments that stand out in our minds, and one of them is certainly our discovery of Jackson and Hyde. Our relationship with them began in an interesting and fairly one-sided way, but has grown into a dedicated partnership. What began with us buying a single crossbody bag has blossomed into our website becoming a certified retailer of their products - amazing!
About Jackson and Hyde
Just in case you’re a Rura lHaze fan that has not become familiar with this incredible brand, we’ll run through some of the things that helped us to fall in love with them. The Jackson and Hyde story is undeniably a love story, and the company can be traced to the honeymoon of the company’s co-founders, Genevieve & Ryan. What began as a clutch purchased on their romantic trip to Central America, quickly became a flood of compliments and, ultimately, a business idea. Now, Jackson and Hyde has partnered with a mother and son duo in Central America to produce high-quality handmade products made from cowhides created as a byproduct from the local food industry.
We first met this dynamic duo in Las Vegas at the Professional Bull Riders World Finals 2015, and a single crossbody was purchased. That was it; with that one bag we were hooked. Their products were just so much better than anything we had ever experienced. The right combination of clean cut, versatile style and durable, lightweight material merge to make their bags and coin pouches must-have western accessories.
Sound familiar? Yeah, they reminded us of us too. Nothing seems to pair better with our line of country jewelry and western style accessories. Whether you are a long term Rural Haze fan or just meeting us for the first time, just imagine how easy it will be to craft a complete look by joining our handmade western accessories with their purses and handbags.
The rest is history. You can find a number of their wonderful western handbags and accessories throughout our store, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
Whether you’re a tenured Rural Haze fan, or just getting to know us, we are excited to welcome you to the RuralHaze.com blog! Our blog is going to focus on all of your favorite women’s western wear trends, including western style dresses, accessories, purses, and more. We’ll be discussing trends and tips for improving your look, as well as sharing the inspiration behind our latest products. Today, however, we’ll be sharing a little bit about us and what got Rural Haze to this point.
Our Gypsy SpiritThanks to the internet, folks with a roaming spirit can now share their products from wherever they are (or aren’t), and that’s something we take full advantage of. It’s common to find us wandering California, Nevada, Idaho, or who-knows-where with a basket full of handmade country style jewelry and accessories in tow. Thanks to our online presence, we can reach fans everywhere, whether we’ve met them in person yet or not! We started this online presence with a modest Etsy shop selling bandanas back in 2013, and it’s amazing how quickly things have grown since then; we were once excited to have been picked up by retailers, yet now we have even become a retailer ourselves! Rural Haze was founded under the belief that every country girl deserves a smile on her face and accessories that bring out her inner spirit, and that is something we have stayed true to through today.
