Movie stars, rock stars and outlaw bikers. Movie sets, mug shots and red carpets. Bill Wall’s artwork, in leather and jewelry, has adorned the famous and infamous since 1985.
The common thread? Bill’s appreciation for simple, elegant design, a crystal-clear sense of what’s cool and his insistence upon working with only the finest quality materials. Every Bill Wall creation is a personal statement that comes through careful choices in materials, form and function to yield a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art to express your attitude and lifestyle.
The BWL brand was established in 1985 in Malibu, when a 20-year young Bill learned that leather apparel could be useful when crashing a motorcycle. Surfing, fishing and working on cars, surrounded by mountains and a view of the Pacific always present, after his accident Bill used an industrial sewing machine to render a few scraps of leather into an outstanding outfit to protect himself on future rides.
Feeling a need to impress the girls, young Bill next got into making jewelry… what better reason? Using only sterling silver and materials selected with the utmost care, the Bill Wall brand boasts a craftsman’s spirit. Bill carves original models for each piece directly out of silver blocks and then replicates them through careful casting, always in limited numbers. His precise craftsmanship is acclaimed worldwide by customers who appreciate the best in all walks of life.
Growing up in a creative environment, surrounded by surfers, celebrities and 1-percenters, Bill’s do-it-yourself approach has always shown through in his work. As the Bill Wall Leather brand achieved widespread fame, nothing has changed. This sensibility resonates with every customer, and is evident in every piece of his art. You need his unique statement in your life and we hope you enjoy visiting Bill’s on-line store.
