We have been working together since the 1990's creating fine leather items for the kink community.
We began our journey in very early 90s with many "leather experiments" after making friends in the kink community. In 1995 or so we began making gear at a family owned leather saddlery business at night and selling leather bondage gear via Ebay. This sexy creative avenue was both a fantasy and a dream for us that led to finally acquiring our own industrial space and machinery by 1998 and then officially starting WLC/Sinvention in 1999. The first 10 years of WLC/Sinvention we mainly sold wholesale to storefronts, online retailers and famous kink celebrities around the world. In 2010 we opened our retail storefront in Stratford, Ontario, Canada to compliment our online webstores and dealer network. One of us was raised in the saddlery leather business and is a 2nd generation kinky leathercrafter. We have both been crafting leather full-time for over 25 years (20+ as Sinvention) creating fine premium leather goods using time honored techniques and always...only...top quality North American veg-tanned leathers! We consider it a privilege. Thank you for your patronage.
Why Church of Sinvention?
From 2005 to 2010 all of our leather bondage gear was made in a grand old church near Lake Erie where we lived and worked. In 2010 we moved our workshop back to Stratford with it's enormous theatre arts community. We required skilled craftspeople to help us make leather goods and this town has them!
But... We still have that same church and some wonderful pervy fun is coming soon!

A bit about our crafting process and materials...
The sourcing of quality leathers is a full time job for us. We commit to only using environmentally friendly North American or European tanned leathers. These areas of the world have strict guidelines for both waste disposal and employee standards. That means no toxic polluting of the worlds oceans and no slave or child labour in the production of these hides. We also pay close attention to the quality of the leather. This means we will always offer you the best of the best. No plastic finished or split retanned low quality skins, EVER!
We use only industry tested hardware. We have searched around the world for the pinnacle of each example of hardware we use. If you pay close attention to the tooling on our metal fittings you will see the difference. Our fancy screw rivets are aesthetically nicer than any form of rivet for leather on the market. The black solid steel rivets we use are always either hidden behind a leather lining or finished with nickle plated smooth caps. All our rings, buckles, dees and snaps are strong welded nickle plated steel. Imported "Vegetable tanned" English Bridle Leather is what the majority of our line is constructed with. Most manufacturers use either thin painted leathers, stretchy chromium tanned latigo or even synthetic leatherette. We line our goods with heavy coat or glove weight soft cowhide. Our cowhides are carefully chosen paying to attention to grains and quality. Items made with this kind of leather don't break or wear out, they just keep getting better!
We always attempt to keep hardware or rivets from coming into contact with the wearer. This is always a good thing for comfort or where sessions go on for long durations. If you look at other articles on the market pay close attention to this. There are almost always either inside rivets or buckles touching the skin. We glue then sew our leather linings in place. If a lining is just glued it usually ends up coming off after time. All our gear is put together is such a way that our linings don't bunch up. Pretty much all gear that can lay flat and has a lining, the lining will bunch up. The edges of all our leather goods are hand rounded and smoothed, and all corners are round. This helps to minimize marks on the wearer and adds additional comfort. Every article of Sinvention gear is an example of attention to detail and quality craftsmanship. Each of our crafting professionals are trained in the special techniques required to work in this medium. The machines we use are unique and custom tooled so that quality is always consistent in every item you'll purchase.
Our products work well, they don't just look
No more will you be replacing broken substandard products, our leather bondage gear just keeps getting better the more you use it!
