ABOUT | BILLYKIRK
BILLYKIRK's collection of leather goods are handcrafted by a group of Amish leather workers in Pennsylvania. Based on the philosophy of William S. Burroughs, “you can’t fake quality anymore than you can fake a good meal,” their classics are designed with an old school attention to detail and an eye for keeping things simple.
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.
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.
