Aventails and Bishop's Mantles

Most Make Your Own Medieval 14th century helms include a set of attached vervelles to attach your aventail (vervelles are a brass ring that extends from the side of the bottom of the helm). Place the aventail over the vervelles and mark holes on the leather band to insert a cord.Cut the holes using a leather punch and insert a cord though the aventail and the vervelles on the helm.

For historical reenactment we recommend riveted chainmail due to its authenticity, lighter weight, and improved durability.
