Wat je gaat doen
When you arrive in our workshop, we'll be serving cocktails and/or beer from local Jersey City brewers and distilleries. Once everyone arrives, we'll begin the class: - A quick discussion about our company, full-grain leather, and our tools - Select your Blank style and color (pre-cut pattern pieces for your Card Case) - Select your thread color - A quick review of heat debossing and hand debossing - Choose an artwork, monogram, or both to decorate your Blank - Apply your artwork and/or monogram to the leather with our vintage Kingsley foil stamper or hand press - We'll teach those who chose the Snap Card Case how to apply the metal spring snaps with a kick-press - We will then guide the class through the sewing portion, taking time to go around and make sure everyone understands how to sew their card case - Once sewn your card case is ready to go!
I started Billykirk back in 1999 with my brother, Chris. Living in LA, we started designing in a small belt factory owned by third generation leather crafter, Arnold Arons. It began with a few simple cuffs and watch straps, but once we had grown enough to rent our own workspace we started to expand to bags and wallets. Those early accessories, like our No. 155 and No. 095, were designed to be made entirely by hand with minimal tools. I still personally hand-sew and monogram most of our custom card cases, so you can be sure you're learning from the best!

Waar je zult zijn
Our workspace is like a living mood-board. On the walls, you'll find everything from old bikes to artwork made by our founders. The room overflows with the smell of leather along with the sound of hammers and mauls. Many of our machines are from the early 20th century, while others were handmade by artisans to meet a specific need. The building is a national historic landmark, made in 1900 as a warehouse for A&P.
