SAMURAI AGE Bottle Cover Samurai Yoroi (Samurai armor bottle cover)

About 500 years ago, Japan was embroiled in an age of warring states known as the Sengoku Period. Active during that time there were five well-known warlords, Masamune Date, Yukimura Sanada, Motonari Mori, Shingen Takeda and Hideyoshi Toyotomi, and in honor of these men, Staff has given these names to its bottle covers. Resembling body armor, these bottle covers are handmade with painstaking care to as closely as possible look like the real thing. The dignity of body armor is left intact, and being made from lightweight and flexible materials, the small armor can be used
to cover Japanese sake or wine bottles, transforming them into the Samurai warriors of the Sengoku Period. Small, compact, and easy to carry by visitors to Japan when returning to their countries, they make great souvenirs for people who are interested in Japanese culture. These bottle covers will without doubt make conversation pieces at bars and have a powerful presence in interior settings.
