I don't even know how that can be called chainmaille...

I've seen that type of metal tile fabric before. One of the names it seems to be called is Glomesh. In my opinion, it doesn't even come close to meeting the definition of chainmaille. There are no woven rings in it at all.

Well mail or not, it's still ridiculously over-priced either way. Surprised

Sorry, I've been a bit busy and drifted away from the boards for a few days. That cuff is an example of what has classically been called "chain mail" in fashion (and especially purses) but has no real relation to what we call chainmail. From what I can tell, it's a type of bead...examples here: http://iamfashionweak.com/chain-us-up/
