Create for the eternity …


Billykirk

Brothers Chris and Kirk Bray have been producing leather goods for the last ten years.
They launched Billykirk from Los Angeles in 1999, learning their craft from a third generation leather maker.
A simple leather strap kick started the business, a decade later their collection has flourished into other offerings that consists of bags, belts, shoes, wallets, hats and other accessories.
Since expanding and moving their operation to the East, they’ve employed a group of Amish leather makers to produce much of their line, while wrapping up production in their studio.
We visited the brothers over the summer to observe their operation first hand and to discover the beauty behind the process.
