Started in 1999 by brothers Chris and Kirk Bray in Los Angeles CA, Billykirk is a leather and canvas design company which was founded on the desire to make lasting items that get better with age. Billykirk, now partnered with three US-based manufacturers, has been located on the East Coast since 2005. Most of their small leather goods and bags are handmade by in-house artisans or by a group of Amish leather crafters in Pennsylvania.
With the collection sold throughout the world, the brothers remain focused on designing goods that are understated and function-driven. This keep-it-simple design philosophy is not led by trends but rather an appreciation for utility, longevity and provenance.
Be sure to visit their new flagship store/showroom located at 16 Orchard Street in the Lower East Side of NYC.
