Vintage ROTJ Leg Warmers
For Return of the Jedi in 1983, the company ‘Sales Corporation of America’ made several styles of knitted Star Wars leg warmers! As a collector of women’s Star Wars fashion items, I was excited to add this red ‘Jedi’ pair to my collection. They measure approximately 54cm long and 14cm wide (lying flat), and are made from 100% Orlon Acrylic. Originally a dance wear item, leg warmers became a popular fashion accessory for women in the 1980’s. I love finding unusual items like this, obviously made for female Star Wars fans, and definitely a fashion accessory of its era – you can read more at The Kessel Runway.
