Not new in the scene, Chainmaille made its appearance in the 1700s when it was used as an armour during the wars. It was apparently an effective defence against slashing blows by an edged weapon and penetration by thrusting and piercing weapons. Now, I'm not asking you to wear them and start having sword fights but I just love the fact that an ancient protective war gear can evolve to a fashion item! How cool is that?
Handy, practical and gorgeous (could also possibly protect you from errr...paper cuts?). Go ahead, get yourself chainamailled today ♥
