Unique Rope Art Inspired Fashion - Statement Pieces
FIGURE OF A was born from the talent of Anna Kii, Shibari artist and fashion designer.
An aesthetic, sensual and modern collection of accessories inspired by Japanese bondage, to be worn daily or in the evening over a more fetish outfit.
Each piece is made to order, using top quality leather and waxed cotton cord, made to measure, by hand by the designer in London.
Inspired by the historical "Cat-O-Nine-Tails" punishment whip, and made using Shibari bondage techniques, this is the medium version of the traditional whip.
This eight-stranded part has a silver zinc alloy and brass hardware.
The stainless steel silver beads are threaded through a polyester cord and the ends are finished with metal tips.
This part is an accessory and is not recommended for high-impact play.
This part can be attached to a collar, your bag or even your harness thanks to its carabiner.
Length: 55 cm
In Japanese, the word "shibari" means "to bind". The contemporary meaning of the word describes an artistic form of bondage.
Originating from the ancient martial art Hojojutsu and the artist, Shunga, torture of Seiu Ito, Shibari was popularized in Japanese erotic magazines in the 1950s. Nowadays, it is a form of aesthetic bondage practiced all over the world, also called Kinbaku.
Traditionally, lengths of natural fibre rope of 5, 6 or 8 mm in diameter are used. The geometric patterns made with the rope contrast beautifully with the natural curves of the body.
The ligature experience is always a collaboration between the "rigger" and the model, the result of which can explore notions of visual beauty, sexuality, power exchange, relaxation and challenges of the body.
