Waxed Cotton

Halley Stevensons in Dundee Scotland are expert wax masters proofing fabric against the elements since 1864.

Our luxurious organic cotton canvas has been weatherproofed the old-fashioned way, without PFOAs or formaldehyde, giving it not only a unique appearance but an extreme resistance to the elements.

The fabrics are breathable, the wax adjusting to ambient temperature to be softer/more breathable in warm weather and stiffer/more windproof in cold conditions. Its proofing can be maintained by applying wax into the surface, keeping it soft, supple and weather-resistant. The densely woven cotton is strong and reliable, while the finish ensures that the fabric looks better with age.

The wax naturally picks up marks and creases through use, which adds to the character of the fabric itself. Garments continually adapt to the wearers' personality, creating unique, one-of-a-kind products.
