Here is the page where you may read about the different leathers I use here at Von Bondage. There is a variety of different leathers for different disciplines, as well as colors. On request I can swap a certain leather for another if the style of the collar or restraint allows it. (some leather may be too thick for certain styles) The all black Leather Restraints, Bondage Accessories and BDSM Bondage Collars come in either the Hot-Stuffed Napa Latigo leather hides that I get in from the Napa Valley or the Chahin English Bridle Leather hides. Please read below for further details of the different leathers used.
Chahin Latigo Leather Hides These grand hides are Kings of super-smooth. They are used for the solid black coloured Bondage Collars w/Steel Hardware and most of the Leather Restraints; These hides are sides which are 8-9oz thick (3.2--3.6mm) and have a blend of greases and waxes rubbed into them. This leather offers the perfect combination of stuffing, flexibility, strength and beauty. It is chrome veg retanned from U.S. heavy native steer hides for durability, high tensile strength and excellent condition. It is very similar to the Chahin Bridle Leather with a tad bit more flexibility, hence why I use it for collars and restraints, and the bridle leather is used primarily for accessories. These hides are supple and flexible, as well as stiff enough to keep there shape.
Soft Bison w/Red Bullhide The Grand-Master in my Arsenal of Leather Hides! This stunning combination of the finest Moccasin grade bison with its decadently soft red bullhide interior makes for an amazingly soft padded choice for restraints and collars. The soft bison is used in the moccasin making industry for its light-weight satiny velvet feel while the red bullhide leather is the softest bullhide I have in stock.
Chahin Bridle Leather This leather is one more example of innovation and expertise in tanning. This premier Chahin “English” Bridle Leather is the best I’ve found offered by any veg tanner. This leather is available in Black and Rich Brown. The real value is found in the feel and heft of this leather. It is drum dyed for true dye penetration and is stuffed with greases, tallows and waxes that make it weather resistant, only more refined than harness leather. While this leather is not tanned and curried in England, it is in many ways superior in price, yield, finish and feel. It is 9/10oz thick. (4mm)
Veg-tan European Bends For the Red-Trim Leather Lines I use these European Single Bends. Tanned by one of the oldest continuously operating tanneries in Europe, this century old tradition of producing exquisite vegetable tanned leather is why I choose this foreign hide to use in my stock. The process begins with premium Scandinavian cowhides which are then tanned to meet the specifications of the finest bag manufacturers in Europe. From these hides, the choicest portions, the single bend is cut.
Patent Leather Sides These leathers are from about 1.5-2mm thick (3.5-4oz) and are bonded to the Supersoft Chrome-Oil Tanned leather sides I have in stock which are kept for the patents and the colored leathers. Combined these make for some serious thicknesses of about 8-9oz of pure sinful luxury. The patent leather lines come in earthy whorish red, and sinfully corrupt black and are very glossy on top. Although available by choice of color for just about all of my leather restraints and collars, there is also a separate section I have aside to view just the Patent Leather Collars to narrow down the view.
Coloured Leather Hides Hailing from the Napa Valley, these soft tempered upholstery hides are very lush and brightly coloured! They are used to line certain styles of bdsm restraints and bondage collars for an extra soft feel, as well as bring some bold new colors to the Bondage Collars and Restraints!!! You may choose these colours in the standard all black leather listings I have available; there is a choice of Fire Red, Royal Blue, Baby Pink, Ivory White and Electric Purple. The coloured leathers range is 3.5oz thick and is bonded to my Supersoft Chrome Oil Tanned hides for extra thickness, comfort as well as contrast. All in all the colored leather line is about 10oz thick and make for very lush bondage wear.
Soft Black w/Colour Inlay - These hides are just the reverse of the Colour Lines. If you would like to have all black BDSM gear that is a soft form fitting leather (as opposed to the stricter belt-type leathers like the Latigo and Bridle Lines) then this line is for you! These Soft Black Leather Bondage Collars and BDSM Restraints come with a peek-a-boo colour edging on the trim. The inside of the collars and cuffs have your colour of choice (red, baby pink, purple or blue) which lays against the skin and cannot be seen when the collar is worn except of the peek-a-boo edging. This leather line is ideal for submissives with sensitive skin.
The Princess Line - This line is made using a very thick and extremely soft white Upholstery Leather from Napa California called Cheyenne. This leather is 4-4.5oz thick and has a soft temper with a beautiful pebble-grain. The white leather is bonded to the baby pink hides for a very feminine feel to the collars and cuffs. This line also have rhinestones on the hardware and has a bit of princess bling.
Sheepskin Line - This line of BDSM gear is made using more exotic types of leather. Mainly exotic prints and different types of cow hides as well as sheepskin lined restraints and bondage collars. I have 2 different types of sheepskin and several types of Bison Leather for this line. The sheepskin collars and cuffs are super soft and made with bullhides.
Cognac Loredo Bullhide w/Buttercream Inlay - This stunning new line is decadent, stylish, as well as comfortable. The Laredo Bullhide is a 5-6oz thick leather with a well defined grain that has a medium temper and a waxy sheen. Bonded to this leather is a Buttercream Napa leather that provides a striking colour contrast to the brown and is super amazing soft on the skin. The leather all in all is about 8-9oz thick and is adorned in solid brass hardware. Why not look absolutely fabulous while being demeaned, tethered and tied?
Tucson Bison w/Cream Bullhide- This heavy grained bison leather is bonded to a luxurious cream bullhide and has a wonderful colour contrast to it. It is very thick, and extremely soft. The top layer is the Tucson Bison leather which comes is a deep bourbon to a whiskey tan colouring. Each hide is a little bit different. The grain is deep and heavy making for a unique hide with plenty of texture. The bullhide underneath is luxuriously soft on the skin.
Vegan Line - This line has 3 different materials for Vegans! I have the Brahma Webb line which is a thick webbing that is coated in a hard rubbery material. The collars are very very thick and have a really nice rounded edging to them and are super smooth. They are a bit plastic-y so do not form fit the body like some of my other materials. These are the THICKEST of the vegan materials I offer. This line is only available in black and in 3/4" and 1" widths since it comes shipped in a reel. Brahma Webbing is easy to clean and amazingly durable. The next material I offer is PVC sheeting. It is 1/4" thick and super-duper shiny! East to wash and care for, this line is really flashy and comfortable since I bevel all of the edges to make them rounded so they do not feel sharp on the skin. This line is great for those of you that would like a bit of bling. Finally there is the IZIT Leather Line which is a polyurethane material that is made to feel like the softest calf skin. IZIT Leather is a high end brand that is used in the sports car industry as well as lining luxury yachts! I offer 4 colours. Onyx Black, Clipper Blue, Poppy Red and Bottle Green. The BDSM gear I make with this line has the IZIT Leather bonded to a microfiber type sheeting to make the collars and cuffs nice and thick for use. This is the thinnest of all the materials and comes in at about 2.2-2.6mm thick (or about 1/4")
