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. The padded coat, minus its nails, is known for short as a chilta. Fabric armor was very popular in India because metal became very hot under the Indian sun. This example has additional armor plates in the chest area. Royal Armouries in Leeds, England.
