Zana Bayne launched her first hand-crafted leather harness collection in 2010.  After graduating with a BFA in Conceptual Art from the San Francisco Art Institute she moved to Berlin before relocating to New York City in 2009 where she began developing her harness accessory business.

The namesake brand of the New York-based designer presents meticulously handcrafted leather accessories that play on the lines of the body. Subtle bondage undertones and defined silhouettes evoke a sense of refinement, accentuating the style of the individual wearer.
