Care instructions

  • Waterproof

    Our rainwear is 100% waterproof, able to withstand the very wettest conditions.

    We use a material called bonded cotton that contains an impermeable rubber membrane placed between two thin layers of cotton. Unlike Gore-Tex and other performance materials, this waterproof cotton fabric does not require retreating and will remain waterproof for life.

    In addition, any exposed areas of stitching are covered with water-resistant tape, ensuring complete protection from the elements.

  • Natural rubber

    Both the bonded cotton material and waterproof glue are made from a natural rubber solution that carries a distinctive scent.

    When unboxing your new rainwear this will be particularly apparent and is part of what makes your raincoat a genuine mackintosh. The scent will soon fade once left to hang.

    Avoid high temperatures such as radiators, fires, and hot-water pipes as this may damage the natural rubber.

  • Storage

    To maintain the appearance of your raincoat please observe the following:

    - Air dry naturally when not in use, especially before storage.

    - Avoid direct sunlight for extended periods of time as this may bleach colours.

    - Do not store folded as this may leave visible creases. Instead store flat or hanging.

  • Cleaning

    Cleaning should be carried out infrequently and by hand only where required:

    - Do not dry clean or machine wash.

    - Small stains should be spot removed with a little soap and water.

    - Use gentle pH neutral soap, never spirits or other harsh chemical cleaners.

    - If it is necessary to wash the whole coat, run a bath with tepid water and wash gently with soap.

    - Remove any water collected in the pockets and hang to drip dry naturally. Do not iron.
