The ailette was a component of thirteenth century knightly armour. Usually made of cuir bouilli, ailettes were thick, quadrangular pieces of leather or wood that attached to the shoulders by means of silk or leather cord. Ailettes were usually flat and nearly rectangular in shape, and usually decorated with heraldic designs.
