“... As soon as I began working with that leather, I knew something had changed in me. I’d found my calling.”

Years of experience in auctioneering gave Justin a love of rare, beautiful things. His hands touched thousands of one-of-a-kind treasures, feeling the craftsmanship and quality. Yet it wasn’t until 2010 that a chance meeting would change his life and put him in the role of artist and Master Craftsman.

“I met a woman from Arizona who needed some help cutting and sewing leather patterns, and for whatever reason I volunteered. As soon as I began working with that leather, I knew something had changed in me. I’d found my calling.”

In weeks, Justin left behind his old life, refinanced his home, and invested everything in his new artisanal leather business.

The Man & His Work


 

Bold new styles and colors found only in Justin Sayne products soon caught the eye of the burlesque, bondage, and adult-play industries. Soon after, fanciful fetish pieces and custom orders for whips, floggers, cuffs and collars helped define the company’s early personality. Our Master Craftsman continues to expand the line of Justin Sayne Leather products, without ever losing his original focus: creating one-of-a-kind treasures.

Justin Sayne's dedication to quality and craftsmanship sent him searching all over the globe to find the very best hides for his work—and in a farm in Southern Africa, where alligator and crocodile hides were produced with outstanding quality, he found his gold mine. His passion is the inspiration for new designs and creations that change from season to season and hand-crafted piece is a unique work of art.
