Billykirk Testimonial No. 3

This is not so much a testimonial as it is a quote that rings true for us daily as we drop Powerbooks, Ipods or cameras into their proper Billykirk pouch or satchel.

"Your work is very handsome....and I like the ancient/future connection between Amish traditions and the oncoming technological world."

Jack, Cincinatti, OH
No 90 Belt Pouch in Brown

Mixing high-tech gadgetry with age old leather making techniques and hand-stitched details is one of the characteristics that embodies what is Billykirk.

When we were designing one of our iPod cases around 5 years ago this quote was very evident. After all, our Amish manufacturers probably have no idea what a phonograph is let alone an Ipod. When we visit them with new designs it is interesting to see their reactions. Having them make cell phone and camera holders for us, gadgets they are not allowed to use, is strangely obscene in away.

My neighbor and friend Angus Vail is an attorney/rock manager for the legendary band Kiss, Aussie metal heads Airborne, soulful UK band Aqualung, and hardcore North Carolina rockers Valient Thor, amongst others. He is now throwing his acting and interviewing talents into the TV/Entertainment ring.

This is the trailer to his new food/travel show, "Past Food to Fast Food." Look quick and you may spot him wearing a few Billykirk belts......Enjoy.
