Historical Background

Cuir

Cuir means Leather in French.

Cuir Bouilli

Cuir bouilli (or boiled leather) was rigid leather hardened by saturation in water or boiled in wax. Once boiled it could be stamped or molded into a definite form when in that condition. Upon drying it became intensely hard and tough but more brittle. From there it would usually be cut into scales or plates and fashioned into various armor pieces.
