Why these two Dutchies started a kinky leather business? To represent accessible empowerment!

What do you do when not a single store sells the products you seek, but you are blessed with in-house expertise to change the scene? Exactly: change the scene. Oneplus one is two, and the situation of born entrepreneurs Hugo and Ramona is no exception to this rule.

We hope that you’re ready for some premium quality kinky leather goods. For real play, from the Netherlands, with love.

In their search for good leatherware to spice things up, the Dutch couple faced disappointment after disappointment. Store in and store out, not a single product would live up to their expectations in both quality and wearing comfort.

But when nothing lives up to your expectations, why don’t you make sure you can live up to your own? And that’s exactly what they did by launching Provocateur.

You can find Provocateur not only online but also at trade fairs. 


Ramona is experienced in the field of leatherware for the hospitality industry. She, therefore, knows exactly how and where to obtain the best materials. In combination with the necessary know-how, two entrepreneurial hearts and a shared hunger to improve the industry, that would mean the start of a beautiful journey. The rest is history.

Sexy leather goods are great, but responsibly produced leather goods are greater. From the start in 2020, Hugo and Ramona considered offering totally safe and sustainable products as the only possible option.

That’s why their products are homemade in the Netherlands, using 100% chromium-free, nickel-free, guilt-free, child-labor-free,vegetable tanned, Italian eco leather that has a longer life cycle and a minimal impact on the environment. If that isn’t a good mouth full, we don’t know what is.

“Our main principle is that we only sell things that we like ourselves.” Where BDSM is often associated with dungeons and humiliation, the products of Provocateur represent accessible empowerment. “We want all kinds of people to feel powerful and safe using our products.


"You don’t have to live a 24/7 hardcore, fetish lifestyle to enjoy items from Provocateur.”

The entrepreneurs put their heart and soul into creating everything they sell. All goods are handmade, so every single product is exclusive and unique. A custom-made collar? You got it! They get a lot of positive feedback on the quality of their goods, which is everything to them. “We want to keep excelling in quality and authenticity. That’s how we keep this fun.”

It’s a challenge to start a business in an unknown market, but there isn’t a day Hugo and Ramona work without a smile on their faces. Being curious and ambitious people at heart, doing what they love gives them all the energy they need to keep learning and growing.

“It’s all about combining work, passion and playfulness.” It’s all about Provocateur.
