This is made using waxed cotton from Halley Stevenson, who have been making high quality cloth in Dundee since 1864. A classic heritage cloth, waxed cotton is water and wind resistant, but also breathes well. This makes it perfect for everyday wear, be that in a rain mac or a handbag.
Traditional waxed cotton should not be machine or hand washed with any detergents, as this will strip the wax coating off and may lead to uneven marks in the cloth. We recommend sponge cleaning the material with water, and mud/dirt should always be left to dry before being brushed off. Many of our waxed cloths come complete with a characteristic 'antique' semi creased finish.
