Waxed cotton Explained

We use Traditional English Waxed Cotton.

The wax cotton fabric is waterproof but wherever the fabric is stitched there is a possibility it will allow water in. If you find that there is a leak in your skirt you can easily touch up the area with the wax dressing provided.

How to re-wax using waxed cotton dressing

  • Using a damp sponge clean of any excess dirt from the waxed cotton.
  • Place your tin of wax cotton dressing in hot water to soften it.
  • Apply thinly with a clean cloth to you waxed cotton.
  • Paying extra attention to seams, pocket edges and any particularly worn areas.

Regular reproofing will help maintain the waxed cotton and prolong its life. You can use other re-waxing products as long as they are designed for, Wax cotton garments.

  1. Niki Hardwick

    A really well made, comfortable and stylish skirt that also did the job it was made for. Lovely!

  2. Caroline Yeo

    Such a brilliant, well made and stylish skirt. Keeps me so warm and dry on and off the horse. With the added bonus of keeping my saddle dry and clean! Very riding friendly, not like the riding skirts and long coats I had as a child which would leave you hanging tangled to the saddle every time you tried to dismount!

  3. Janine Falle

    I am finding that my Nouvelle Habit skirt is really coming into it’s own now the weather is reliably wet!
    I have it spread out drying and ready to pull on just as I leave for my ride. It takes a minute, no more, to put on, it feels comfortable and it keeps me bone dry! Plus!!! The saddle and numnah are also completely dry! So labour saving too!
    I really consider it an integral part of my equipment! Don’t hesitate, just get one!
