Water resistant Navy oilskin with a beeswax finish. Our new beeswax range uses an organic greige fabric and then is impregnated with a natural beeswax.
The fabric has a firm, crisp dry handle. It offers a vintage and distressed look when handled that will remain in the garment giving a unique leathery look. Please note the fabric smells like beeswax and will crease and marble much more than any of our other oilskins, so please be aware of this.
This fabric is water resistant, so this means that the water doesn’t completely run off it, but it won't come through to the other side either.
Ideal for bags, accessories and outdoor coats.

All our oilskins are sent folded unless otherwise requested. There will be firm lines where it has been folded - but as soon as you start to work with the fabric it will all become marbled so these will then just blend in to the rest of the fabric. There is an additional charge for oilskin orders totalling less than 10m to be sent rolled. Please see our FAQ section for details.
