This is made using waxed linen from Halley Stevenson, who have been making high quality cloth in Dundee since 1864. A classic heritage cloth, waxed cloth 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 fabric 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. Please note that because this is a very light coloured waxed cloth, dirt and wear marks may be more noticable and should be considered a part of the character of the garment.
Waxed cloth can be re-waxed after heavy use or when needed. For top ups, we sell smaller tins here, which are heated in water bath and then applied to the garment or bag with a lint free, clean cotton cloth. It should then be left to hang dry for a recommended 24 hours in a well ventilated space.
