We specialize in reproofing (some refer to this as oiling, waxing, redressing or simply waterproofing) waxed cotton jackets to keep them water resistant. For over 200 years mariners have known the value of a waterproof garment.
New England Reproofers know just how important these garments are… especially to the avid sportsman. Keep your jacket as robust as the day it was new!
Waxed Cotton Defined
The term waxed cotton, applies to any impregnated cotton fabric consisting of a wax- or oil-based solution formulated for its waterproof properties. (Some refer to this as oiled cotton, wax proofs, oilskins, thorn proofs or oiled japara.)
