Embroidered linothorax post thumbnail

Project Type :- Historical recreation


This embroidered linothorax features vivid colors and decorative elements. It is made with a thick leather base, white and purple linen, and natural leather binding. Around the waist, a natural veg tan leather belt was added, tooled with a meandros motif. The decorative elements on the fabric are embroidered by hand using a golden colored thread. Those are two vergina suns on the shoulder piece (epomides) and an anthemion on the back.

We make each embroidered linothorax to exacting standards based on ancient designs, so you have the highest quality reproduction available. Whether you are looking to use the armor for Cosplay, historical recreation or for LARP games, our designs will stand up to scrutiny, punishment, or both depending upon your needs. Each armor set is meticulously hand made with the finest historically accurate materials available today. We work closely with the Greek historical association Koryvantes, following their recommendations on period specific design, construction and artistic interpretation. You won’t find a more beautifully made, authentic Greek armor set anywhere else.

At Epos Leather, we use only the finest materials and techniques to create our linothorax armor. Each set of armor is unique and fully customizable to ensure a perfect fit for the wearer. Cosmetically, each armor set is designed using elements of artifacts located in historical dig sites, or found during archeological research here in Greece. These elements are interpreted and combined to create the beautiful and functional pieces you see here.
