For more than a quarter-century, Noir Leather has been metro Detroit's prime purveyor of kink, offering BDSM toys, leather gear, sexy threads, lingerie and almost anything necessary to satisfy any taste. But what really sets Noir apart from other adult shops is its constant community presence. It embraced being on the fringe before being on the fringe was cool, and frequently hosts a number of fashion events, parties and concerts, including its epic Hellbound fetish parties.
