About the Artisans

stevenkay.jpgSole Survivor

If you are new to Sole Survivor, let us introduce you. Sole Survivor is owned by Steve and Kay Rye. Steve began his artisanal leatherwork career back in the 1960's.  Kay joined him in 1979. The couple has been designing and making leather goods together in the St. Louis area since 1985. Daughter Annie Rye began working with Sole Survivor in 2007 as an apprentice.  She now works full time as a leather artisan.


While the location has changed a few times over the years, the focus of the business has not. Sole Survivor has always been dedicated to designing and making fine everyday leather goods. Items that are useful, needful and worth the investment.
