Lamellar armour from genuine leather
Lamellar armouris a kind of personal armour consisting of small plates (lames) which are laced together in parallel rows. Lamellar armour evolved from scale armour, from which it differs by not needing a backing for the scales. Lamellar was often worn as augmentation to existing armour, such as over a mail hauberk. The lamellar cuirass was especially popular with the Rus, as well as Mongols, Turks, Avars, and other steppe peoples as it was simple to create and maintain.
