Padded Armour Company - Late Medieval Cotton Padded Jack
A late medieval padded jack, made in heavy weight linen, and
lined in linen.

The padding is layered organic cotton [aka batting], meaning
that the jack is fully washable (with care).

The quilting pattern seen on the body of the ack is based on the
Lubeck jack (which is dated to approx. 1450 - 1475).

The lightly curved sleeves are horizontally quilted.

The front fastens with points, over an internal protective port
piece.  The point holes are hand sewn, over hidden metal rings.
