About BBA


Our Approach

Beautiful and Functional

BBA makes simply beautiful armour for art collectors; film; print; and cosplay.

I also make beautiful armour that also meets formal specifications for rattan full contact combat sports; steel touch combat sports, steel contact combat sports, foam weapon live action roleplay, medieval re-enactment and historical European martial arts.
