Oughton Limited, based in Pawlet. This accessories company makes gorgeous leather handbags and wallets taking inspiration from the equestrian field. Each piece displays details such as bronze halter squares, rafted in Italy for custom horse halters. Their style is "understated, country elegance" and the use of the highest quality top-grain leather, 22oz waxed canvas, Italian milled faux fur fabric and RiRi zippers puts Oughton Limited in a different class.
The full range consists of totes, cases, overnight bags and wallets. Oughton Limited bags have a beautiful simplicity and classic style that is stylish but not overly style conscious. The kind of thing that would last you a lifetime.
"Much like the ringmaster trumpets the start of a Grand Prix event, distinctive luggage announces ones arrivals and departures. OUGHTON bags suggest a sensibility of long-lasting utility and timeless equestrian traditions. An heirloom for the next generation, who will wear the patina of your travels with pride." More here.
