I know you’re hard on your messenger bag, backpack, fill in the blank, that you beat up on a daily basis. What if I told you that I know a brand that makes awesome dude bags that are durable and cool looking at the same time? Would you be promising me chocolates and flowers to get the name?
Ok, ok! It’s Billykirk, a brand conceived and designed by two brothers that knew what they were going to call their company before they knew what they wanted to sell! Billykirk is handcrafted by Amish leather workers in Pennsylvania, and then finished by the brothers themselves. You know the Amish don’t mess around when it comes to quality, so it’s no surprise that Billykirk is one of the highest quality leather bag and accessory lines out there today.
Their prices range from $65 for small leather accessories to $345 for the leather bags. So whether you are riding your bike over to Scoops on Heliotrop for some hand-made ice cream, sailing in Santa Monica over the weekend, or want to be the coolest dude on your next camping trip, Billykirk has something for you.
Feel free to send me Valerie Confections and flowers anytime ; )
