HOW WE WORK
Here at penumbra, it’s all about you and your desires.
Material, hardware, size, personalizations… Our goal is to make you happy!
How do we do that? With 100% handcraft from Austria.
From choosing the right materials, drawing up designs for your products, cutting, sewing, riveting, packing… Everything happens in our small manufacture in beautiful Schattendorf (Austria). That’s how we ensure to deliver products that meet our high quality standards.
IMPRESSIONS FROM THE WORKSHOP
That means we don’t keep a large product stock (we use that space for stocking more raw materials):
Instead, we only start the work on your item once you place an order. Our product range is as colorful and diverse as our customers.
That way, we can ensure the most freedom in assembling your new favorite accessory – from material and hardware to personal engravings and colored stitching.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Once upon a time, there was a young woman that wanted something special. Something that was nowhere to be found.
At the same time, she was finishing her training as a seamstress and thought about using her skills to create certain kinky products for her own personal needs.
That young woman’s name is Lena, and today, many years later, she’s the creative mind behind penumbra – a BDSM and fetish brand known for its unique designs and high-quality handmade products.
Lena founded penumbra back in 2014 in a small corner of her first apartment, initially as a hobby project besides her “real” job: designing and sewing gorgeous gowns. Back then, everything was still small and easy to manage: the first workshop was in her own apartment, and the first customers were primarily friends and acquaintances.
Thanks to a wonderful community and the best customers ever, the little side hustle grew up to become a real business and Lena closed the doors to her tailor shop in 2019 to fully concentrate on penumbra.
A few years and moves later, penumbra found its home in a spacious workshop in Burgenland (Austria), where Lena and her team still create all their products with love and by hand.
WHERE TO MEET US?
A few times a year, we visit fairs to get to know our customers and help with word and deed to find your perfect penumbra product. You can see our products up close and have the rare opportunity to take one of our pre-made products back home right away.
Besides that, you can come and visit us in our workshop for a personal consultation. Please make an appointment beforehand so we can ensure that we have time for you.
We collected all our upcoming events in a blog entry and also tell you about what to expect when you come and visit us in the workshop.
