Eisenbrück padded greaves - linen
Our padded greaves are closed with three buttons and additionally laced with a long tie. That makes them very flexibly adaptable to the size of the wearer. The tie is laced cross-wise in the front which gives them a nice detailed look. An unobtrusive tuck gives them just the right shape for the calves. Besides it is fairly easy to put them on: close the buttons, lace the tie and get going.
In contrast to other padded accessories our models have no metal closures that get in the way when combined with further pieces of armour.
A solid layer of padded clothing is essential for every fighter in LARP. Everyone who has ever had any bruises from wearing armour knows what we are talking about.
Strikes upon the shin or calves are absorbed and softened by the padding. The padding itself can also be worn as light armour for example at practice fights.

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.
