Expedition Dry Cotton Oilskin, Tan, Merchant & Mills, per 1/2 meter
Best quality dry oilskin made in the UK.
The finish is drier and crisper than Merchant & Mills other oilskins with a matte appearance. Unlike normal oilskin there would be no oil transfer, so you don’t need to line your garment or bag. 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 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 and outerwear
