A bishop's mantle is a chain mail collar covering the neck, the shoulders and the upper part of the chest and back. It wasparticularly favoured by the German Landknechte (mercenary soldiers) in the 15th and 16th centuries and is woven similarly to amail coif. The shape of this piece of chain armour explains its name, as it greatly resembled the very wide-cut collar of a bishop'smantle. The bishop's mantles made by Ulfberth are modeled on historical examples. They feature a jagged edge. A riveted leather liner protectsthe area around the neck and the neckline is adjustable by means of straps and genuine late medieval brass buckles.More information
