EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE
Jawas wear brown jersey gloves. These are common work gloves made of cotton.
The bandoliers worn by the Jawas in Episode I are the same ones used in filming Episode
IV: A New Hope, British Pattern 1903 Leather Bandoliers. They are made of brown leather
with five 10-round pockets in the front. There are brass buckles for regulating the size
and a strap for securing the lower end of the bandolier to the waistbelt (this strap was
removed). This design of bandolier was made for only five years (1903-1908) though it saw
many years of service after that.
They were modified by cutting two approximately 1 1/2" slits in each of the pouches to create a band to tuck the flaps into. This would keep the ends of the flaps down, since they tend to curl up.
