This unique chain maille is made from small rings of only 6 mm diameter.
Following original models, it is woven with alternate rows of round, riveted rings with domed rivet heads and flat, punched rings.
Due to the extremely small ring diameter this chain maille could (in antiquity as well as today) be made from 1mm steel, without losing any battle effectiveness.
The wearer's comfort is increased through the weight reduction of approximately 30-35%.
We call this type of chain maile RM (Roman Mail).
It was worn not only by the Kelts and Romans (Hamata), but was common well into the the late medieval period.
Chain mail skirts in particular, were popular in the late Middle Ages, since plate armour dominated during this period and the unprotected areas between the plates were covered with chain mail.
