Billykirk is an American-made brand that is both a wholesaler and manufacturer of leather and canvas goods, including bags, belts, wallets, hats, and accessories. Since 1999, the growing company has focused on creating and distributing function-driven products that are durable, practical and timeless. Most of its small leather goods are handmade by in-house artisans located in Jersey City, NJ or by a group of Amish leather crafters in Pennsylvania.
To produce these premium products during seasonal peaks, Billykirk needed financing in order to afford new materials, hardware, and manufacturing costs. Self-funded since its inception, the company found that its growth was now tying up too much of its cash flow.
