About the Founder

Vannpyra is the solo Founder & Curator of Lace & Tassels. She is a kink enthusiast with a background spanning 6 years in the sex tech industry.

Growing up in a conservative and often oppressive Ireland, Vannp often felt frustrated by the lack of resources and information available to help her understand, explore and express her sexuality. Having this experience, and knowing firsthand the pain and shame that can come from sexual trauma and slut shaming, Vannpyra was determined to help create a better Ireland for others like her, and so in 2020 she founded the pleasure emporium Lace & Tassels.

She has a passion for beautifully designed products and has spent years researching and carefully curating a collection of high-quality sex toys, lingerie, cosmetics and accessories to enhance intimacy and pleasure. She personally chooses each and every product in the emporium, ensuring that every item is high-quality as well as body-safe. 

Vannp is also dedicated to fostering a welcoming and inclusive space for anyone and everyone to explore their sexuality, regardless of gender, orientation, or experience level and hosts a moderated Facebook community of over 1000+ members where all are welcome.

A member of the Femtech Collective, she enjoys staying up to date with industry trends, attends regular sex ed workshops with educators and experts like Lola Jean, Madam Storm and Miss Kim Rub covering topics like sexual health and wellness, kink, consent, sexuality and beyond. She herself hosts an all gender inclusive pleasure workshop for university students around Ireland alongside Aoife Murray, an Irish peer kink educator.

She is currently attending Sextech School with Bryony Cole and works Mon-Fri as a UX specialist in ecommerce.

Behind the Name

The name Lace & Tassels was carefully chosen to reflect the duality of our brand and the variety of luxurious, sensual experiences we offer. Lace represents the softer, more delicate side of our brand. The sensual side with cosmetics, wellbeing essentials, confidence-boosting apparel and non-intimidating, approachable toys. Lace is perfect for those who are new to pleasure exploration, or curious and seeking a more refined, relaxed introduction! Tassels, on the other hand, represents the edgier, bolder and more adventurous side of our brand, catering to discerning pleasure seekers and experienced connoisseurs who are looking for more daring and immersive experiences. Together, Lace & Tassels encompasses the full range of sensual exploration, catering to both those who are new to the journey and those who are well-versed in the art of pleasure.
