In a typical historic Berlin flat at the southern end of the Kreuzberg district, the atelier of Petra dos Santos makes its home. A sales floor, showroom and studio workshop all fit under one roof.
In 1998 dos Santos, a Stuttgart native, moved from Hamburg to Berlin and made her dream a reality. An exclusive leather workshop has been enriching the 'city of creatives' ever since. The metropolis of Berlin has become her great love, “I can no longer imagine moving my business anywhere else.” Luckily for Australians with an appreciation for fine leather she has recently supplied Max Black in Sydney with an exclusive line of beautifully crafted accessories, including cuffs, blindfolds, collars, floggers and her famous harnesses. So popular is the line that the harnesses sold out within weeks and a new shipment is already in production.
You may ask why but it only takes a caress or scent of her materials to be quickly convinced by the exceptional quality of her work and her designs. And while some of her clients come from the fetish and kink communities many more are fashion-conscious trendsetters who cherish truly original leatherwear. Each piece is genuinely made in Berlin from toxin-free European leathers. "I always know exactly where my leather comes from, and that obviously feels much better!” the leather expert explains.
