Hi, my name is Anna Phelps and I am the owner of Button Boutique. I own and run Toolong Station, which is 80kms out of Tambo in outback Queensland. Owning my own cattle station has always been my goal and even in the tough times I am living the dream. Toolong runs over eighteen hundred head of cattle and most days you will find me out checking waters and mustering with my work dogs.
How did a country girl like me start my own boutique business you may ask? Well, I really wanted to own a unique cowhide tote bag but couldn’t find one that was exactly what I wanted… so I made my own. From there family, friends and people on the street would ask where my bag came from, then ask me to create one for them & that is how Button Boutique started in May 2016.
Since then our range has extended from tote bags to weekender bags, stubby coolers, shoes and even gun cases. Who would have thought!
I personally check every item that is made to ensure that you receive the best quality and it is sent to you with much love from me for supporting my little business.
All of the cowhides are ethically sourced and are a by-product of the beef industry. Each cowhide is unique and has it’s own charm which means all our products are too. You won’t believe how soft and silky they are until you are holding it in your own hands. Cowhide is easy to look after and with each purchase I send out simple care instructions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
