Bexar Goods Co.
The definitive source for high quality, handcrafted leather goods made right here in Bexar County is none other than Bexar Goods Co. Established by three young men of the Rubio family, brothers Falcon and Christian and cousin Guy, Bexar Goods’ products are sold online as well as in a few stores in Austin—and one in Singapore. While there’s no local storefront just yet, the Rubios hope to open a workshop and boutique within the year. At the top end of the register, exquisite leather briefcases, carryalls and messenger bags run from $270 to $875; canvas totes and bags with leather detailing range from $140 to $350; belts fall in the neighborhood of $85; and other accessories, from coasters and mouse pads to dog leashes and collars, cost anywhere between $35 and $95. Head to the website to see these gorgeous goods for yourself.
