Added to our collection for its merging of leathers and metals, Sobo reminds us of these materials being used in ancient armours.
Sobo & Co Jewellery is a small family run business based in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside in the small market town of Wantage. After starting with a few sketches on a notebook back in late 2019, each piece is carefully crafted in a dedicated studio and is a combination of hand poured pewter, stainless steel and hand cut, either lamb skin or cow hide leather.
With the appointment of Nicholas Merbury as master of the King's Ordnance in the early part of the 15th century, the Royal Armouries commenced its role as the standard setter for arms and armour in this country.
This pride and heritage extends to the Royal Armouries products, inspired by our collections and our special place in Britain's history.
