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. We were tired of purchasing low quality goods that didn’t last more than a few months, and we realized that many others out there felt the same way. Our studio is located in the historic Opelika, AL train depot, just a few feet from the still-active tracks today. Often the train rushes by, drowning out the sounds of work, reminding us that its presence created the space we now call home. At Loyal Stricklin, we believe in community; the careful selection of materials; smart, simple design; and the beauty in products that age and patina with grace— and are all the better because of it.
