These are photo’s of the actual leather, however colours will look different in different browser settings, so the colour you see on your screen may not be the true colour also colours may darken with the application of leather dressing used to plait your order……as an example in my browser the pink looks cerise but is actually very much a baby pink, please ask if you are unsure…
The metalic coloured hide is double plus the price of a regular coloured hide, should you choose any of these colours there will be an extra charge, I keep it in stock primarily for flogger handles, it doesnt fair well in a flexible thong being a heat sealed colour, if you really must have it in your whip then the best place for it is as an accent colour in your knot and wrist strap.
Essentia was in the past one of the leading Nylon Whip makers in the world, and a lot of the original Essentia innovative patterns are still much copied today, however, there are now nylon whip makers on every street corner competing for work. With this in mind we have pulled back a little from the flooded market and continue to offer now only a limited range, all aimed at the Fetish Community.
We only used branded nylon cord, not the cheap Chinese copies that are floating about the internet, which are usually not nylon but some sort of poly something or other, in our experience its lightweight, quite flammable and very much second class. The real deal costs a little bit more but feel strongly that its well worth it.
Kip Leather Colours
Kip has had its share of bad press, usually from American makers, this is not their fault they have been palmed off with cheap tooling leather and told its Kip, this is what the majority use to bolster their whips with, and is a very very different story to quality used here at Essentia. This is grade A factory dyed veg tanned English Kip coming from a tannery that produces nothing but this, second in tensile strength only to Kangaroo Hide. If you have the right material to make the job, the job will be good and the English Kip used at Essentia is the right material.
