Much like fine wine, the leather and canvas bags (starting at $240) at design store Billykirk get better with age. Brothers Chris and Kirk Bray source materials and goods—like braided belts, hand-stitched clutches and Brooklyn-made ceramic planters—from around the country. And the company’s small leather products are made by in-house artisans and Amish leather crafters. Despite the Americana theme, the brothers eschewed clichéd log-cabin decor and instead opted to display their wares in minimalist displays with a midcentury feel.
