Shane's been working at Eagle Leather now for the longest of any of us, well over 15 years, and took over ownership of the business with BJ in 2010. He needs no introduction for many of you - he's our resident Store Manager, dealing with all the day to day happenings in store and he'll usually be the friendly face you see behind the counter when you visit the shop, or the one that you might deal with when you buy something on our online store! He also sources heaps of new gear and toys for us every month to keep our customers expanding their collections of awesome gear.
A wealth of knowledge in many areas BDSM, he is without a doubt one of the most experienced adult shop workers in the country with over 30 years in the adult industry across three different states! He is particularly into Leather, Bondage, Toys and Impact Play - along with almost everything else!
BJ's been working at Eagle Leather now for 12 years, and took over ownership of the business with Shane in 2010. He's been working in adult shops now for over 17 years, and when he was offered a job at Eagle Leather he never looked back, knowing he could work in an industry he was so passionate about and at a brand which was so highly regarded around the Melbourne scene. His role in the brand is essentially as business manager, organising all of our events and workshops, supporting the community as well as developing relationships with suppliers and key stakeholders, and orchestrating company strategy and planning as we move forward into an exciting future.
BJ is an accomplished BDSM top with a full time passion for everything that is BDSM and fetish. From a young age he was always extremely experimental, with flogging his first foray into the fetish scene - and on this basis his interests begun to develop, especially in the areas of impact play and Japanese influenced bondage. Through his career at Eagle Leather, he has focused on education and established himself as one of the main presenters at Eagle Leather's workshops and seminars for over ten years. His educational expertise saw him win coveted awards for "Australia's Best Sex Educator" as well as “Australia’s Best BDSM Master” at the Eros Shine Awards.
Pepper has been working behind the scenes at Eagle Leather now for four years, having been heavily involved in the BDSM scene since the impressionable age of 20. Pepper has been assisting as a bottom at Eagle Leather's seminars and workshops for several years as well as orchestrating our new Introduction to BDSM Class along with Sado BJ the last 12 months.
Having worked in retail and store management for 13 years, she has an eye for detail, a high level of organisational skills and exceptional customer service which culminated in her being a finalist in the Australian Young Retailer of the Year awards in 2010. Her role at Eagle Leather includes keeping up with the books, online customer service, and managing the Eagle Leather rubber room, as well as visual merchandising, social media management, continuous improvement, sourcing new products, plus back-end organisational and administrational management and involvement in the central leadership team for FANTASTIC: THE PARTY.
Hanna joined us in 2016 with a Bachelor of Fashion Design (with Honours) under her belt from RMIT, where she specialised in leatherwork, tailoring, lingerie, corsetry, illustration, drape and millinery.
She's been excelling in the retail scene for several years whilst developing her own brand of vampish bags and accessories under her eponymous label, Tusler Leather.
We've been getting Hanna to produce a few of our lines over the last few years now, and we've been consistently blown away by the quality of her leathermaking. We're absolutely tickled pink to finally have her working in our new boutique studio as our first ever in-house leathermaker.
