Chilta hazar masha (Coat of a thousand nails), kulah khud (helmet), bazu band (arm guards). Indian armored clothing made from layers of fabric faced with velvet and studded with numerous small brass nails, which were often gilded. The padded coat, minus its nails, is known for short as a chilta and was worn over armor or on its own. Fabric armor was very popular in India because metal became very hot under the Indian sun.
