Aketon of Charles VI of France

Aketon of Charles VI of France

ID: 16201

An aketon (or “acton”, from the Spanish “alcoton” which is itself derived from Arabic “al-qutum”, “cotton”) is a kind of coat used during the 13th – 15th centuries. This padded defensive jacket was worn as armor (by warriors of inferior rank) or as padding for additional steel armor worn over the top by those with the means to afford it.  An aketon was generally quilted, and either sewn or stuffed with linen, tow or, in some cases, grass.

Our Aketon of Charles VI of France (1368-1422) is patterned after an image placed in Chartres Cathedral around the 14th century. Two layers of cotton batting make our handmade Aketon durable and shock-resistant. It’s handmade with high-quality machine stitching, quilted vertically. The buttons are covered with fabric. At once functional and aesthetically pleasing, our Aketon is essential under-armor wear.

Our Aketon can be completed with sewn leather arming points for arm armor connection. One pair of arming points will be attached on the shoulders. Two pairs will be sewn to the sleeve above and under the elbow joint.
Please note: the sewn arming points may not fit the holes of your steel arm harness. In this case, you can easily unsew them and change the positions according to your needs.
