Leather Armor

The wars were always waged. The reason was always found. Weapons and armour were used for defence and attack. We would like to offer leather armour in this category. Our leather armour is less effective (than the plate armour) but is quality. Take a look at leather antiquity and gladiator armour, scales and lamellas armour, leather brigandines, leather vambraces, leather greaves, leather helmets and leather pauldrons. Leather armour for horses is our speciality.

Leather armour was used by warriors in different countries and in different historical periods. Leather is probably one of the oldest materials from which armour was produced. However, archaeological research can’t provide any specific evidence.

Many types of leather armour were used – it is certain. Leather greaves, cuirasses, gauntlets, helmets, vambraces and boots were leather armour parts that were made most often.

The word cuirass is derived from naming of body protector that was made from boiled leather (in French: cuir). This name has been kept still.

Lower ranks of military units were equipped with leather armour often because the production of such equipment was less expensive than the production of plate armour.

We offer many parts of leather armour in the category “Leather armour”. Take a look at leather antiquity and gladiator armour, scales and lamellas armour, leather brigandines, leather vambraces, leather greaves, leather helmets and leather pauldrons. Leather armour for horses is our speciality. All leather armour is made very well and in detail.

You will find also other products from leather in our e-shop. They can delight you. There are leather bags, belts or gloves inspired ancient and recent history.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Why you cannot deliver swords or daggers to Switzerland?

Dear customers from Switzerland, we are very sorry that we cannot deliver swords, daggers, sabres, maces, combat axes, flails etc. to your country. We meet with bureaucratic obstacles at all products that either are or just look as a weapon again and again. We receive all consignments to Switzerland automatically back with an explanation "subject to the import permit." Our logistics partners told us the following: "both goods that are sold only to persons over 18 years and goods that merely look as weapons are subject to import permit. (For example: toy guns are sellable without restrictions in Switzerland, BUT are subject to import permit issued by the Swiss authorities!)". We have found only the following solutions so far: (1) The customer secures collection at our address in the Czech Republic himself (his logistic partner can handle this procedure better), (2) the customer gives us a delivery address in the EU. The disadvantage is that we have to charge the VAT tax in both cases.
