A pair of gamboised cuisses in red and black.

Gamboised cuisses are early medieval padded leg (or thigh)
coverings.

These are made with a heavy weight linen outer (the same
linen, dyed to shade), lined in a lighter natural linen.

The cuisses are slightly curved, to allow for the shape of the
leg, and fasten with points at the back or inside leg (by
preference).

The quilting is done by machine, and the edging and eyelets
are done by hand (the eyelets sewn over internal metal
rings, as usual).
