A Dwarven treasure, Mithril is a metal that is described in The Hobbit as resembling silver but being stronger and lighter than steel. This design is Inspired by the 'small shirt of mail' retrieved from the dragon, Smaug's treasure in The Lonely Mountain, and given to Bilbo by Thorin Oakenshield. In Rivendell, Bilbo later gifts it to Frodo saying “My heart is glad to know you have such a coat” - this quote is inscribed in Elvish on the borders of our Mithril design. 

The chain mail is described as being 'as supple almost as linen, cold as ice, and harder than steel. It shone like moonlit silver, and was studded with white gems.' This design features intricate interlinking rings leading to delicate circular details which frame the hems of the fabric.
