Artwear by Cheryl Straby

Forty years ago, while working for a designer, I created my first collaged and pieced leather art coat from the scraps off the cutting room floor. This coat launched my business and gave me my creative voice! Art Wear Leather and Suede Coats and Capes still remain closest to my heart and define my creative vision to this day. Learn more.

100% Genuine Leather, Suede and Wool in handcrafted, original designs. Shearling is another option.

Dressing the Governor General

I was honoured to have the Governor General, Mary Simon, wear my designs at a recent Order of Canada ceremony at Rideau Hall in Ottawa.

A long time customer from Calgary is a personal friend of the Governor General’s and she brought Mary Simon into the boutique where she selected from my collections a wool caplet trimmed in suede with one of my signature suede maple leaf scarves.

After designing and creating for so many years, this is truly an honour! She is such a beautiful woman inside and out.
