Gobelin Padded Set
In the Middle Ages quilted cloth reinforced with simple leather elements might be the only protection of the poor soldier. Padded jackets and stockings were less expensive than steel. However even rich noble knights wore padding under their armor. They stood out by using valuable fabrics and rich colors.
Our Gobelin Padded Set consists of our Gobelin Gambeson and Gobelin Quilted Stockings. Made from gobelin style fabric in a very beautiful combination of noble gold and warm marsala colors with medieval floral patterns, this padded armor is vertically quilted and stuffed with two layers of natural sheet wadding. It’s comfortable and light, and steel armor looks gorgeous on the gobelin fabric background. You can also add to this set with a Gobelin Padded Aventail.
The sleeves of the gambeson can be made sewed or detachable (as pictured). We can also add 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.
