Esinem: Shibari teacher and performer

I am a very experienced Japanese bondage (shibari/kinbaku) artist who teaches and performs internationally. My teachers include Yukimura Haruki, Osada Steve, Kazami Ranki, Kinoko Hajime and Arisue Go.

I am also author of ‘Japanese Rope Bondage: Tying people not parcels’ and a co-organiser of the London Festival of the Art of Japanese Bondage and BOUND, Europe’s premier monthly shibari event. My work has appeared on national and international TV, in videos and many prestigious publications including Vogue Italia, Skin Two, Wallpaper, SM Sniper, Sang Bleu and LOVE. One of my most recent collaborations was Primal Scream’s 2013 short film by Rei Nadal with Nick Knight as creative consultant.
