Brand launches to encourage adults to play on the wild side with guided gift boxes
Bottega Nera wants you to spice up your love life. Founded in 2016, UK brand Bottega Nera is inspired by the wish to get away for a weekend and try something new in style. BDSM is becoming more acknowledged in mainstream media, but high-quality toys are hard to find for curious beginners.
Bottega Nera wants to introduce the world to real kink with luxury gift sets. The founders discovered that many couples and individuals were interested in spicing up their sex lives, but didn’t know where to start. Many sex shops only stock novelty toys and low-quality gag gifts, which make it difficult to get the full-on experience. Bottega Nera boxes are curated to include just the highest quality BDSM toys and sex toys. Along with tantalising new treats, the beautifully designed boxes include tutorials on how to play with the implements inside and introductions to negotiating kinky play.
The company went live with six limited edition boxes in late 2018. The boxes range from a shy introduction to BDSM to the True Kink collection which features some truly wicked toys appropriate for the regular dungeon-goer. The selection of high-end boxes range from 150 GBP all the way up to 1400 pounds and include items, such as designer lingerie, premium bondage rope, and high-quality toys for all orientations. The toys in the boxes have been chosen to be so beautiful they could sit on your mantelpiece or bookshelf when not in use and to last a lifetime of experimentation. The company is expanding its collection to include smaller gift sets and Hen/Bachelorette party gift boxes in early 2019.
“Our brand is all about empowering people to celebrate their sexuality and use body-safe products and methods to do so. Experimenting should feel luxurious and fun, and our kits allow you to have that full experience without the stress of trying to find new toys by yourself” – Mary Maskovas, Head of Marketing and Creative at Bottega Nera.
