This is a dry oilskin fabric in rich aubergine. The finish is dry and crisp with a matte appearance. Unlike normal oilskin there would be no oil transfer, so you don’t need to line your garment or bag.
This type of oilskin 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 and accessories as well as jackets and coats.
GOTS certified organic cotton.
Made in the UK.
Inspired by a 1910 patent for waterproofing textiles. It is treated with an emulsified wax which is heat-processed into the cloth for a longer lasting finish and higher performance. The finish is vegan.
This material can be washed by hand, but it would need re-proofing.
Cool setting iron or just finger press.
Do not use any interfacing with this type of oilskin.
For colour accuracy we always recommend ordering a swatch.
