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.
