Peasant Armour

Peasants during medieval times did not wear much armor due to the cost, which limited them to leather protection and piecemeal metal armor. Leather armor could be crafted from the hides of farm animals such as cows or wild animal hides from bison and deer. These hides were skinned and dried out by the sun before being formed into pieces like leather breastplates and leather bracers. We carry an excellent assortment of simple medieval armor that suits peasant styles, including steel gorgets, suede brigandines, and wrist cuffs, as well as traditional leather armor. This plain peasant armor works well for the Renaissance fair, costume parties, theatrical productions, and LARP events.
