I've been asked by a gentleman (who's been very helpful to me -- he's the

Armor.  Honestly the answer is "no, I don't".  I know virtually nothing
relevant about armor production (beyond some basics here and there).
However, we have people here who might know something.

I would be really grateful if anyone has any thoughts, suggestions, hints,
actual materials, whatever.

articles on history, trade and production of such armour, and so
