HOW IT'S MADE

MATERIALS

The Billie Bag is made from premium vegetable tanned leather sourced from US tanneries. Roughly 90% of today's leather products are chrome-tanned, which typically only takes several days and uses harsh chemicals to dye the hide. Vegetable tanning, a method that has been around since as early as 7000 BCE, uses oak, chestnut, or mimosa bark, and the tannins from these plants result in a longer-lasting product. The vegetable tanning process can take anywhere from six weeks to six months, depending on the plants used and the number of “pits” or barrels the leather soaks in.

RANCH-INSPIRED DESIGN

All of our goods are made entirely by hand, and our designs are inspired by our working ranch lifestyle and the heritage style of traditional Western saddle-makers. The shape of our Billie Bag is a play on the Australian billie bag--a tradition tea-drinking vessel that clips into a stock saddle.
