Hawthorne Tartan Waxed Poplin - A few years ago, I spent a week in Scotland and it's definitely one of those places where a raincoat is a must. So it only seemed appropriate to use a little bit of tartan as one of our fabrics. When I found this waxed tartan poplin I knew it was a match meant to be! The tartan consists of brown, purple and yellow lines, though they are very faint under the layer of wax. A very subtle pattern that will turn your parka into a wonderfully unique raincoat!
Magenta Cotton Oilskin - Sometimes you don't want to be subtle and you want to make a bright, bold statement. You can do just that with this magenta cotton oilskin. The oilskin has a dry finish created when the fabric is treated with an emulsified wax that is heat-processed into the cloth for a longer lasting finish and higher performance. And the color! Together, you have the perfect fabric for a cheery raincoat to brighten up your closet.
Majolica Blue Organic Dry Oilskin - Similar to the magenta oilskin, this fabric as a subtler look in a muted blue-green, the color of bluestone. Underneath the water resistant coating, the fabric itself has a ripstop look, with tenth of an inch squares, giving it a slightly industrial feel. Paired with the classic shape of the parka, it will look modern and chic, all while keeping you dry and protected!
