Sales Associate/Weekend Shop Keeper

Company Overview

Billie Marie

Billie Marie Website
At Billie Marie Small Batch Leather Goods, we produce leather handbags, wallets and small accessories with an emphasis on slow made, high quality, hand-finished craftsmanship that will thrive with everyday use. That’s why all of our products are produced in small batches, ensuring each and every one of our products are one-of-a-kind and can withstand the test of time.

Steering away from the fast fashion trend, we use a lot of vegetable-tanned leather because it creates the least amount of chemical waste and produces a honey-colored patina that gets better with age.

Our primary goal is to build a brand that is known for its positive interactions with customers, employees and the environment. We hope to create functional products for people on the go and one day provide training and live-able wage jobs in communities without easy access to higher education.
