Chilta hazar masha (coat of a thousand nails), kulah khud (helmet), bazu
band (arm guards). Indian armored clothing made from layers of fabric
faced with velvet and studded with numerous small brass nails, which
were often gilded. Fabric armor was very popular in India because metal
became very hot under the Indian sun. This example has additional armor
plates on the chest area, arms, and thighs. Hermitage Museum.
