Our Story

Red Rigger is a collaboration between RedBear and Namaiki; two proud perverts with a passion for Japanese inspired rope bondage and wax play, among other things…

Located in Hamilton, Qld, this duo have been roping for over a combined 18 years and making their own soy candles and rope care products by hand for about 6 years.

It began as these things usually do; finding it difficult to procure a steady stream of quality wax play candles in Australia (specifically the Japanese wa-rousoku style) and expensive to have them shipped from overseas, they decided to try their hands at making them for themselves and for friends.  The results and feedback were phenomenal, and Red Rigger was born.

Red Rigger soy candles are a safe temperature on the skin, visually pleasing and so easy to use.
Red Rigger wax sets hard upon the skin, allowing easy removal with fingernails, a knife, floggers, canes….you get the idea 😉 and the colours are brilliant, made to stand out in photos, on stage and in low light conditions. The UV range produce a stunning visual effect under UV black-lights.

Do you like to pour, drip or splash? Do you need candles for a performance? How about a delicious scented wax play candle? Red Rigger Candles are available in many different shapes and sizes, with varying temperatures (never too hot though) and functionality, so you can choose the ones that are just right for your needs.

If rope bondage is your thing, then Red Rigger’s rope oils, waxes and polishes will help to soften, smooth, protect and prolong the life of your natural fibre bondage ropes. Red Rigger also have a range of high quality bondage ropes and accessories available.

Namaiki and RedBear are enthusiastic educators and their baby, Red Rigger Rope School has been operating for over a year now, allowing them to share their passion for Japanese rope bondage with the kinksters of Brisbane. Namaiki specialises in non TK chest harnesses and self suspension but also has extensive knowledge of the more traditional harnesses and forms. RedBear has some of the fastest rigging fingers in Australia and a talent for finding the right balance and beautiful shapes in the air.

If you can’t make it to the regular weekly classes, private tuition can be booked through the online shop.
