Wax Cotton

The shearling, leather and fur used in our garments are all natural skins making each product unique. Variations in texture and shade are intrinsic qualities of such materials and should not be regarded as defects.

Traditional wax garments should not be washed or dry-cleaned.

Allow any mud to dry before gently brushing off with a soft, lint free, fabric pad. Sponge with cold water if needed. Always allow your garment to dry thoroughly after use in a cool, airy environment. Ideally dry on a hanger to retain the shape. Never pack away your garment while damp or wet.

Re-proofing will maintain the weatherproof qualities and extend the garment's life. Use only a good quality re-proofing wax dressing which can be purchased online from a number of retailers.

  • Place tin of dressing in warm water to soften.
  • Apply with clean cotton cloth, paying particular attention to seams, elbows, pocket edges, cuffs and creases following any directions on the tin.
  • How often a garment needs re-proofing will depend on the frequency a garment is worn. With regular wear we recommend re-proofing once a year.

Never use soap, detergents or solvents.
