Most brands mass-produce their bags and accessories, meaning more and more people are carrying around the same unoriginal handbags. At LOYALTY LEATHER every bag, shoe, and accessory is hand-painted like a work of art and guaranteed to be unique. We’ll make you a handbag that no one else has so you can stand out everywhere you go.


Painted by award wining artists and guaranteed to be unique.

Driven by a desire to bridge the gap between fine art and everyday life, Loyalty Leather was co-founded by the wife duo Cheryl and Kyra Ellzysmith in their South Philadelphia studio in 2018. Dedicated to creating the highest quality hand bags, shoes and leather accessories that also double as works of art, the couple has backgrounds in fine art and product design.

Cheryl is a national award wining artist and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Alum, recognized for her exceptional use of color and skills in realism. Kyra, a Jefferson University Alum, is an award winning designer with experience working with top fashion brands.

Together, the pair are committed to masterful leather craft, sustainably sourced leather, and innovating new designs and paint techniques that help us celebrate our individuality.

Cheryl and Kyra can be spotted frequenting happy hour in Philadelphia with their Great Dane's Beau and Foxy.
