Leatherbeaten - one word - is a small but perfectly formed leather company, specialising in hand made whips, floggers and flagellators of the highest quality. Our gear offers one of the widest array of sensation toys anywhere in the world. It was described recently as ranging "from soft as a feather to hard as a chainsaw", and although that's a bit of an exaggeration, it isn't much of one.
We've been in the wholesale business for close to fifteen years, and are proud to supply some of the best fetish stores on three continents. We're still working on the others! Many of our goods are unique, original designs, such as our Penitent series, based on actual religious flagellators, which we enjoy because of their elaborate nastiness and human scale.
But we're not just about droolable flagellation kit. We also produce a broad range of bondage items, including blindfolds, restraints, harnesses, CBT gear, collars and a series of BDSM themed introductory kits. We work with a variety of materials, including many different types of leather, rubber, silk brocade, rope and just plain weird stuff like seagrass!
There's a world of difference between Leatherbeaten and many of our competitors, and you will see it in our gear. What sets us apart is a commitment to quality. We have no shareholders to answer to, so we are not driven by the bottom line (so to speak). What pushes us is the crafters' instinct to build a durable, functional, even beautiful, piece. IF you are in the market for a flogger say, your browsing across the web will throw up many, many sites advertising floggers that look much the same. Reason is, they are the same. They come mostly from South Asia, and they are of dubious quality. We know, because Leatherbeaten is targetted on a daily basis by the factories that produce them, and have had occasion to dismantle a sample or two. You will never find that stuff here. We make all of our own gear, in house, right here, and we stand behind everything we make.
Leatherbeaten is based in the small-ish town of Peterborough, Ontario, in the fragrant pine woods just south of the Canadian shield. It's an area of beautiful lakes and forests, hot humid summers and deep frozen winters. Lots of elemental sensation play. Maybe that's where we get it from.... "We" are Hyacinth Prendergast and "Stoker" Bob McGlade. We love to be able to increase the amount and quality of safe, sane and consensual pain and suffering in the world. There's way too much of the other kind.
We have a small retail space for walk in customers in our workshop. If you find yourself in the Peterborough area (and you should, occasionally, it's good for you) please feel free to drop in for a visit. We're centrally located just off George St, at 164 Sherbrooke, in the rear of the lovely old Larry Electric building. If you're coming in from out of town, please email us first to let us know, so we can make sure we're there.
We hope you will find things you like on our website,. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, complaints or compliments you may have. We love to hear from you, and while we may whip, we don't bite.
