Snake and croc print is officially out and cow print is all the way in this season. Even though cows are one of the most popular animals to produce leather goods from—bags, purses, wallets, shoes, furniture, and even car upholstery—their pattern has been extremely underrated until now. We’re not entirely sure if the recent shift has something to do with the “yee-haw agenda” flooding our timelines with westernwear or if Doja Cat is to blame for planting cow content into our brains last year with “Mooo!” after it went viral, but the infamous print can suddenly be spotted as far as the eye can see.
During these troubling times, perhaps there’s a universal longing to go back to the basics of life in the countryside. (A little more aspiring milk maiden, a little less prairie girl… Am I right, ladies and lads?) Because once upon a time there was no climate crisis and livestock basically ruled the land. Horticulture is seemingly on the rise for 2020 with brands like adidas finding inspiration through gardening of all activities, so we might as well take the extra step and fertilize some manure, you know?
To avoid looking like a complete and udder mess when you ultimately latch on to all that cattle on the market, we’ve selected 12 of the most pristine items that you can get your hands on while supplies last. In a weird way, it’s almost like honoring the cow by draping its beautiful marker on your body.
