about kerri monroy

Kerri started crafting out of a love for leather, a vintage Singer sewing machine, and a few old leather jackets from a thrift store that she tore apart. What started as a dream and a hobby has finally turned into Chara Leather Co! Chara means “joy” in Greek, and she hopes to bring joy to people through creating beautiful leather bags and accessories from up-cycled leather remnants, and by being a part of the Grand Rapids community.
