The toll of looking this darn good is that people stare at you everywhere you go. Striding down the street on your beautiful, but sturdy mare, the townsfolk eye you as one might a king--or at the very least, a very rich lord.
Can you blame them? You are decorated in your Corrazina, a piece of armour so regal you might as well be royalty. Let them look in awe! Just don’t let them get their peasant hands all over the fine suede.
Epic Armoury’s Corrazina is a beautiful low-fantasy piece of armour protecting the front and back of the torso and abdomen. The plate rests at the waist and is sculpted to fit the body and add structural strength to the steel. This steel riveted piece has been covered with a luxurious and soft layer of suede leather, giving it a particularly rich appearance.
The Corrazina is constructed using multiple metal plates in order to bend comfortably around the body, and is further adjusted to fit your torso using top-grain leather straps at the shoulders, sides, and along the front. It is fully usable with Epic Armoury’s other metal work products, giving you the freedom to customize your character’s costume. Made of 1 mm thick galvanized mild steel, suede leather, and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase
It is best to start cleaning leather from the most delicate measures possible. Therefore, use a damp cloth with a little soap. If this is not enough - use a hard brush to remove dirt. Remove the soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue, and then use a dry cloth to wipe away the remaining water from the leather. Let it dry completely before the next maintenance step.
Always keep the leather maintenance after cleaning, because the soap will remove some of its natural oils. Apply mink oil, olive oil or professional lanolin-based fats to clean leather using a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of fat with circular movements. Wait for the fat to soak in the leather, then use a clean cloth to clog the residue. For maintenance, you can also use beeswax by heating it to a liquid state and applying it to the leather. Remember that the leather so preserved will be harder and significantly darken what sometimes is the desired effect.
