Up & Running: Billykirk 2.0
After a long and arduous journey, good friends, Billykirk have unveiled their much anticipated new site. Improving on their previous e-commerce platform, the new site is chocked full of bells & whistles that are foreign to its predecessor. Speaking from a sheer volume perspective, the Brays have pulled out all the stops and have more online offerings than ever before along with several online exclusives. There’s also an image heavy blog that provides a glimpse into Chris’ obsession with hot rods, worn counter tops and zippers, as well as Kirk’s artwork and some images of product battle scars.
A little about the gentlemen at the helm.
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.
Pop-over to the new site and check out the latest bag of goods along with their upcoming Black Friday savings. Also, if you’re in New York between November 30th and December 2nd, you can catch the Billykirk at The Pop-Up Flea, where they’ll be selling and customizing select belts, wallets, etc. [Billykirk]
