Our Story

Loyal Stricklin is an idea built from nothing. One hide turned to two, two to four, and four to many more.  With a few simple tools, we began our story: one built on hard work, late nights, and too many cups of coffee. Our studio is located in historic Opelika, AL just a few feet from the train tracks that helped this town spring to life over 100 years ago. Often the train rushes by, drowning out the sounds of work, reminding us that its presence created the space we now call home.

Every purchase helps save lives.

We believe intensely in helping the world not just through saving resources through creating products that last, but from creating a lasting social impact. Loyal Stricklin is dedicated to giving back to our fellow man, by donating 20% of our profit to worthy causes around the world. We believe in programs that fight to combat sex trafficking, modern day slavery, oppression, and improving the quality of life of people around the world. This year, we are donating exclusively to The International Justice Mission.

Our hope is that Loyal Stricklin is known not just for just quality goods that last, but for creating a legacy that we can all be proud to be a part of. At Loyal Stricklin, we believe in community; the careful selection of materials; thoughtful, simple design; and the beauty in products that age and patina with grace— and are all the better because of it.

Loyal Stricklin is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Michael and Sarah Stricklin with help from our small team of wonderful employees.

-As seen in-
When you support Small Business...
 You're not just buying a wallet, or a candle, or a mug; you're buying into someone's passions, their dream, their livelihood. It's as if you get a glimpse into a part of their day--through their eyes--where they spent hours looking over and shaping the same piece that you now hold in your hands.  That same care and attention will rest loyally in your hands, in your pocket, and in use for years to come. There's a beauty and a warmth to it that just isn't possible with your normal big box store purchase.  
Even if you decide not to purchase from us, we hope that you will purchase with a purpose from makers, from artists, and from average Joe's just chasing their dreams and living life by their own terms.
