The Bjorn LARP Leather Body and Shoulders
Introducing the NEW Bjorn LARP Leather Body and Shoulders, designed and created by Alex Agricola, founder of Black Raven Armoury. Inspired by the great Norse bear & something special to me, Hand made out of premium grade materials, this armour has been crafted using a combination of hand dyed, antiqued and finished 3.2-3.5mm veg tanned leather and comes ready to wear.
Without question, I have to admit… the most comfortable armour I?ve ever created, full range of moment and dramatic look thanks to the Mammen style Bear art, created by our newest member of the team ?Thiago?. I really wanted to create an embossing that embodied strength and power.. double headed bears at the crest of the chest and paws entwining the torso …
The shoulders are made of 12 fully articulating 3.2mm main plates, 36 hand edge stamped 3.2mm overlay plates and approx 200 domed rivets ?all water formed and hardened, not to mention all coloured and aged to really give that battle worn look?
All armours come ready built and finished in the colour of your choice selected below.? This leather armour has been designed to fit chests ranging from 40-50 inches (102 ? 127 cm?s) however larger or smaller are possible by special order (please enquire) .? A stunning, practical larp leather armour, designed to not only look good, but to perform beautifully in true combat.
This armour is available with or without embossing, it is also available with additional? texturing applied to the panels as shown in the picture
The armour can have domed rivets as used elsewhere on the body instead of the Diamond shaped decorative rivets, please add a note to your order to request these if you prefer them.

The Bjorn LARP Leather Body and Shoulders have been professionally crafted and dyed by Black Raven Armoury.
Conceived by Alex Agricola, the Bjorn body comprises premium grade top grain 3.2-3.5 mm Veg Tanned leather.
It comes ready built and finished in the colour of your choice. We also offer an undyed natural version which is left for you to stain and finish to your taste.
The Bjorn LARP Leather Body Armour fits chests ranging from 40-50 inches (102 ? 127 cm?s).
The shoulders comprise 12 fully articulating 3.2mm main plates.
Many months in the making, we wanted to make a functional combat-ready leather armour with a unique appearance. The Bjorn is the end result and we’re incredibly proud of what we achieved.
The hand-stained and finished body is then embossed with original artwork created by our own Thiago Moraes whilst each of the shoulder overlay plates has a hand embossed detail
The Bjorn can be worn on the battlefield or as dress armour it’s entirely up to you
Like all of our work the Bjorn has been lovingly prepared, distressed and aged to give it that perfect antique finish.
PLEASE NOTE: The standard Bjorn armour?s come with slightly domed/ flat head rivets. Should you prefer domed head rivets, please contact in advance to enquiry about the additional cost, other wise standard rivets will be used.
