Today we are featuring Alabama Maker, Loyal Stricklin. Michael Stricklin began crafting accessories as a response to poorly made accessories he had seen in the market. It was his mission to create high quality lifestyle goods that are not only long-lasting, but would also age and patina beautifully with every use. We first fell in love with Loyal Stricklin after discovering his Aviator Mug, the perfect traveling coffee accessory one could ask for. But with every product that has been added to the Loyal Stricklin lifestyle line, from Horween leather tote bags to wallets, we’ve fallen in love more and more. The attention to detail and quality of goods produced by Loyal Stricklin is unparalleled. Loyal Stricklin does not cut corners and sources the highest quality materials such as Horween Chromexcel leather, and Japanese brass hardware. We love how this unisex Shackle Bracelet is the epitome of simplicity yet exhibits richness. Loyal Stricklin crafts everything in their Alabama studio and believes strongly in American made products as well as small batch production, ensuring the highest quality as well as providing a personal connection with each item made. Just like Renegade Craft Fair, Loyal Stricklin believes that handmade items “just have that little extra personal touch that sets them above the rest.” The photos on the Loyal Stricklin Instagram feed are stunning visual representations of products, inspirations, and the culture and nature of Michael Strickin’s travels. We are so thrilled to have Loyal Stricklin join us at our Renegade Craft Fair: SXSW Edition in Austin! Get yourself acquainted with all of the products on their website, Twitter, Instagram and come out to our Fair in just 3 days!
