ACC#270 CHAIN MAIL JACKET

18th Century

A heavy chain mail jacket made of ‘shige gusari’ weave applied to double layered hemp to support the weight, beige on the outside and blue on the interior.

Hemp was favoured as lining material for armour as it absorbs sweat well and dries quickly. Trimmed in doe skin.

Length: approx.. 70cm
