The helmet is an essential part of the armour from the Middle Ages. Its function is to protect against injuries (of course). Helmets were made from different materials such as bones, leathers, bronze, steel and other metals. Today, helmets are used for protection during dangerous work activities, transportation, sports, etc. They are made from durable plastic.
You will find helmets from various historical epoch in this category, e.g. Viking helmets, Norman helmets, Greek and Roman helmets and Saracen and Arabic helmets.
Next great helmets can be found among our helmets of knights. They protected the whole head of knight. Their disadvantage was the fact that the view from them was limited. They arose in the late twelfth century in the context of the crusades and remained in use until the fourteenth century. Other type of helmets is the bascinet. It was important when the warrior threw great helmet during a fight. Then warrior could see and breathe better. The bascinet, without a visor, was worn underneath larger great helms. From around 1380 the visor, by this time considerably larger than earlier forms, was drawn out into a conical point like a muzzle or a beak, and was given the names "hounskull" or "pig faced". The barbute is Italian version of bascinet.
Also sallets or armets (helmets with visors) can be found in our offer. Removable visor was attached to lighter types of helmets. Maybe, you will be enthused by burgonets and kettle hats. We have fantasy and other helmetsfor fans.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
