Wild Hide Deluxe Harness – the new video

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

It’s no secret that Max Black loves Wild Hide. This fantastic Australian leather workshop has been working with us for over 5 years now and their leather harness products are some of our all-time best sellers!

Every one of them is hand crafted by talented leathersmiths in sunny Queensland with a beautiful attention to detail that delivers soft, sensual and thoroughly practical strap on harnesses.

Want to see more? Wild Hide have been busy creating how-to videos on the Deluxe Harness (called The Wild Hide Harness at MB). It’s worth a watch if you’ve ever wanted to know how these little wonders work…

CLAUDE Play Packs now distributed at Max Black!

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Max Black and Claude have joined forces to bring free kinky play packs directly to women who play with other women. Is that you? Next time you visit Max Black you can pick one up!

Max Black is stocked with play packs which have lube, condoms, gloves, cleaning product for toys and surfaces and of course no kit would be complete without some info about safe sex, looking after yourself, your partners and your toys. Blood play packs are also available with the same contents as the above kit and also a sharps disposal bin, alcohol swabs, needle tips, cotton wool balls and of course we’d never distribute this kind of stuff without some information about how to keep yourself safe and free from blood borne viruses.

If you can’t make it in to Max Black but you’re a woman from NSW you can order your free play pack on the Claude website (www.iloveclaude.com). While you’re there check out the badass site which celebrates women into kink, defiance, art and sex.

Claude is pumped full of all the good stuff – music, bravery, health info, free stuff, videos, interviews and everything that sits on the edge. One more thrust and Claude would burst!

Living luxury leather : the allure of Petra Dos Santos

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

In an 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.

Petra Dos Santos

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.
