The Billy Bag


The Billy Bag was born out of a saddlebag design and created by our company’s founder and namesake Billy Cook, when one of his favorite employees asked him to make a purse for her. She needed it to carry her leather crafting tools and personal belongings to and from work, and keep them easily accessible. A saddle bag is generally asymmetrical to fit around the back of a saddle seat, and has a flap to keep a cowboy’s gear from shaking loose. Billy adapted the design, creating a symmetrical pattern and removing the flap for an open top.

 
 
 

Just like Genuine Billy Cook saddles, these bags are made by hand in Sulphur, Oklahoma using only top grain leather hides.

 

Same as fingerprints, the grain in each hide is unique. Most handbag manufacturers try to eliminate these inconsistencies and create cosmetic uniformity, but to do so requires processing that diminishes the integrity of the leather. As traditional saddle makers, we do not do that. So your bag has a distinct character and the strength and durability of the leather remains intact.

We know that you will appreciate that our handbags are built in the same spirit as our saddles. Their materials will stand up to the abuse that comes with hard work, and they are artisan tooled to display the personality of the individual that selects it as their own.
