His “passion” is crafting high-quality items for his customers whether they be canine or human or some combination of both.

It truly is a family business. A few years back, he was commissioned to create a dungeon space for a client. He designed leather walls, Fetish furniture and even installed the soundproofing. It was a big project that required a little help. His father pitched in and did all of the stonework to complete the full dungeon decor. The Sanders pride themselves in bring quality to every project. Sander uses quality and organically tanned German and Italian leather.
Thomas launched his first shop specializing in products for dogs – collars, leashes, and harnesses. Simple collar designs elaborating into creative fashion meeting the demand for plenty of bling! This past April, he launched his second store on Motzstraße and expanded into Fetish wear. He caters to the fetish-inclined, having developed a loyal following with his supply of human collars and other arousing leather items for puppies and freaks.
He works with traditional thick German cowhides. This type of leather lends itself to items like leashes, collars and biker gear that typically require sturdy construction. The motorcycle crowd comes for custom saddle bags and other quality biker gear.
He also has produced items from moose and buffalo hides. He offers tips for leather care so that your product will serve you for years to come.

His customers range from dog enthusiasts looking accessories for their pets to local fetish players looking for quality gear to tourists looking for something edgy from their trip to Berlin.
