Wyred Slave is run by a life-style couple who have many combined years experience in our chosen world.
Wyred Slave started life when we searched thoroughly but failed to find a collar to suit our needs. We were looking for a locking metal collar that not only didn’t cost a mortgage payment, but if it was affordable didn’t then fall apart within minutes.
It had to not only look good and be functional as a collar, but also be discrete enough to wear on a daily basis in front of family and friends.
Finally it also had to be kind to skin and not bring out a nasty rash when worn for long periods of time… I usually only have to look at some metals and can react badly!
Obviously we struggled… so we made one of our own.
We realised there must be other people out there looking for the same thing… so we started with the basic criteria: good looking, affordable, wearable designs that have an excellent reputation for being well-made…. and up to the job.
The first collar design to be made was the 4mm Plain Band… which was picked up by one of our (now) regular customers who showed it to a southern lifestyle company called Him n Hers. They liked the product so much they ordered some for their website.
At that point we didn’t even have a business name let alone a name for the range despite them already selling on ebay and through word of mouth.
After much discussion and a spark of creativity we decided to call ourselves Wyred Slave. The wyred is two-fold… our original design was using metal rope – or wire – and we used to live on the Wyre Coast – so here we are. In fact now that we have moved down to Somerset it still sort of works. As the county flag features a Wyvern. 🙂
From little acorns… we have sent collars and other pieces all over the world and have expanded from the original plain band to now offer a large range of collar designs including thicker-gauge collars, collars with different styles of O-Rings, locking belts, leashes and cuffs… plus new ideas are being introduced all the time.
We’re small enough that each item is made with care to order… which we feel makes your piece extra special as it’s made only for you. As most collars have the importance of a wedding band the attention to detail and personal touch we offer adds to the event in a unique way.
We love what we do and it thrills us to be able to make other people’s lives more complete… and we intend to carry on with our unique attention to detail and extensive after sales care.
