This chainmail skirt piece is crafted from flat rings that have been wedge-riveted together - they are alternated with solid flat rings to save construction time and bring down its cost. The skirt is unfinished - it will need some work clipping and riveting some new rings to complete its circuit and get it to the proper size desired.

Not just a skirt, this piece could be used as a shortcut to lengthen a chainmail haubergeon shirt by a crafty person.

While chainmail is largely associated with pre-gunpowder warfare, it is actually still in use in certain, often industrial settings where protection from blades is needed. Butchers commonly wear a mail glove to protect their hands and workers in meat-packing plants can wear up to 8 pounds of chainmail that cover their arms and torsos. The British Police will sometimes don chainmail gloves when taking down a knife-wielding assailant and scuba divers who know they are entering waters frequented by sharks will often wear a chainmail suit. That well-crafted mail can prevent injury from industrial meat-packing blades and shark bites is a modern testament to its historical defensive value against bladed weapons.
