What are Armor Trims in Minecraft 1.20

Armor Trims are ways to visually customize your armor in the open world game. They allow you to change the color and design through Armor Trims adding flair and showing off the locations you’ve traveled.

How to make customizable armor in Minecraft

To customize your armor you will need to get hold of three things:

  1. An Armor Trim
  2. An Ore
  3. A piece of armor to customize

The armor itself can be crafted as normal, while the Armor Trim must be found and is typically located in notable locations, although we have all the locations, and recipes listed below. As for the ores, the color of your armor set will depend on the ore you use. Altogether, there are ten different possible ores, therefore making ten possible colors. They are:

  • Iron
  • Copper
  • Gold
  • Lapis
  • Emerald
  • Diamond
  • Netherite
  • Redstone
  • Amethyst
  • Quartz

Once you have an ore, an Armor Trim, and a piece of armor, head over to a Smithing Table and combine the three ingredients. Then, your personalized armor will be made.
