* What is dry oilskin? Dry Oilskin is treated with an emulsified wax. This binds a wax-based product with water to give a non-oily finish. The solutions are heat-processed into the cloth for a longer lasting finish and higher performance. The finish is vegan.

The finish is drier and crisper than normal oilskins with a matte appearance. Hand wash only, do not iron just finger press. Unlike normal oilskin there would be no oil transfer so you don’t need to line your garment or bag. Ideal for bags and accessories. 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. 

Best quality dry oilskin made in the UK. 150 cm wide, 245 gsm. This is a blue grey shade.
