Gunnar Leather Pattern

A Once in a lifetime truly rare opportunity to get your hands on another of my exclusive “Beloved” pattern sets

Designed and created by Alex Agricola, founder of Black Raven Armoury & The Black Raven Academy.

“The Gunnar” Leather body armour was inspired by the great Norse Beasts & epic Norse longship. These designs were born of Alex’s enduring passion for re-creating armours and costume, that “could have” existed!
