Waxed cotton is the traditional British fabric that emerged in the mid-19th century. Initially, it was used by Scottish sailors for the protection from inclement weather and sea spray. Later on, it became popular everywhere in Britain, thanks to its wonderful water-resistant qualities.
These days, the clothes and accessories of waxed cotton are worn by real connoisseurs of tradition, and adepts of the British style. Waxed cotton is one of the basic materials for such cult brands as Barbour, Belstaff, and Brooks.
Waxed cotton is made in Lancashire, Great Britain, by the Britishy Millerain Co.
The hat made of waxed cotton from the Irish factory Hanna Hats of Donegal, will protect you from wind and rain in any season, and it will surely become your favorite headwear.
