This armor for children is based on the Corbridge type lorica segmentata from the 1st century AD. This type of armor is named after the town of Corbridge in the north of England, where remains of Loricae segmentatae have been found. This area is where the old Corstopitum fort stood, an important base for the Roman army at Hadrian's wall. This armor is made of aluminum, making it light in weight and easy to wear for children, and also maintenance-free. Unlike normal steel, aluminum does not rust. The lorica has brass fittings, and leather laces at the front to close it.

Maintenance & care

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
