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.

The best way to store you skirt, is to hang it up using the hanger at the back of the skirt. This will allow it to dry out and reduce the risk of it staying damp and mould forming.

    You know when you need to ride but it is raining and you know that you’re going to end up soaked through with a wet saddle?
    This riding skirt is the perfect solution. You can tell that it has been designed by a rider – the wrap around design and the hidden extra flap at the back mean that it covers your saddle and lays against the sides of your horse keeping everything warm and dry.
    The waxed cotton is weighty enough that the skirt stays in place really well and your legs can move under it. As well as the functionality, there are so many stylish details: the leather, logo-stamped buckles, the deep, cosy pockets and the choice of trims (including high vis!)

    I love my riding skirt 😍I have been wearing it out hacking and it’s perfect for our Scottish weather, it blocks the wind and the rain just bounces right off! I mostly wear it with my usual yard jacket but a quick wipe over with a damp cloth(brings it back to new) and it looks so smart with my hacking jacket in the warm up arena and keeps my jodhpurs clean too! Thank you so much for my beautiful skirt 😍

    ‘My husband treated me to a Nouvelle Habit Riding skirt for Christmas. It was an indulgence to spend this much on a skirt but riding in the cold wind yesterday I can honestly say it was amazing and worth it. Here is why, as soon as I put the skirt on it sat so well on my hips, the Velcro fastenings are situated perfectly and the adjustment is great as you can wear it over jacket or jumper or underneath them. Getting on Lulu was easy too and the leg straps enable a secure fit around the legs to defeat and cold easterly wind! Riding in the skirt at all paces feels secure and comfortable. I love the high back which keeps you warm and stabilises the position of the skirt whilst riding. This skirt is a credit to it’s designer, it is so evident that every aspect has been tested for riding. The workmanship and packing the skirt arrives in is great too. I can’t wait to ride it in the forest when we are able.
