Japanese company ‘Samurai Age’ creates samurai armour for the fiercest, most loyal warriors around: our pets.
The company sells standardised armour for cats and dogs, complete with intricate details such as trims and shiny ornaments. They also make custom designs based on your pet’s size, as well as styles inspired by real-life suits worn by legendary samurai like Sengoku hero Sanada Yukimura.
The outfits are made from leather, and not from steel, so it won’t weigh them down. With that said, it’s best not to make them wear the suits all the time. I mean, how would you feel if you tried to take a cat nap while wearing such cumbersome gear?
The armour will cost anywhere from 4,040 yen (AUS$166 or US$125) to 16,416 yen (AUS$194 or US$146). You can find out more by checking out Samurai Age’s Facebook page.
