Into Bondage but Not Leather? This Line of BDSM Accessories Is 100 Percent Vegan

Why should fetishes be irresponsible?

Ever want to play 50 Shades of Grey, but can't swallow the thought of all that leather and man-pandering? 

There is hope. Bijoux Indiscrets—the Spanish sex-toy retailer that recently gave us an online orgasm library—just launched Maze, a collection of bondage-inspired accessories that's 100 percent vegan, and made by women, for women. 

The 12-piece collection is meant to work both with lingerie and over a white shirt and jeans—bringing a spiked nuance to casual work attire. It's made with polyurethane, a recyclable polymer that looks and feels like leather (without the sacrifice of doe-eyed cows). The hardware is composed of non-heavy metals, and components can be adjusted for different body types. 

Available colors are kept to a minimum—black and tan. Think of it as an eco-responsible, more lady-friendly take on The Story of O. 

Co-founder and designer Elsa Viegas of Bijoux Indiscrets confesses to having been attracted to BDSM style for as long as she can remember. "It's a world that fascinates me—how hard it all looks, but how delicate the paths of rope, latex and leather can be," she tells AdFreak. "It is a dark universe that allows you to be yourself, to be the real you." 

She laments that the aesthetic is often limited to dungeons or parties. "It can be such a source of inspiration for your fashion looks," she says. "Maze unites these two worlds in a subtle way."

Check out the making-of video for the photo shoot, which demonstrates how Maze can be worn for play, or for adding an edge to those pantsuits you're now wondering what to do with. 

The video was produced entirely in-house, using an internal digital designer, as well as a photo agency from Barcelona. 

To people who may consider BDSM inherently misogynistic—and an odd departure from the woman-empowering orgasm library—Viegas says the line is about expressing female pleasure and sexual freedom as "fundamental rights." 

"Society still establishes different boundaries and 'allows' sexual freedom based on gender," she says. "We want women to feel good about their sexuality. Being a designer and a woman, in a woman-founded company, gives us a very feminine approach to the erotic market. When I design new things, I'm not only doing it as a designer, but also as a critic and user."

The vegan aspect is a nod to Bijoux Indiscrets' values: You can be passionate and sexy without foregoing social responsibilities (which is, in the end, the kind of reassurance a working woman needs). 

"Respecting the planet and the animal welfare is not only a trend. It is a need! We only have one planet and we all should engage in sustainable practices," Viegas argues.

Check out the complete Maze collection on the Bijoux Indiscrets website. If you're a suspenders kinda lady looking for a change—or just something to express your post-election inner darkness—you'll definitely find some sassy options.
