Billykirk is started in 1999 by brothers Chris and Kirk Bray in Los Angeles CA (USA). It’s 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. Below their Spring Summer 2013 collection.
