Waxed cotton Explained

We use Traditional English Waxed Cotton.

The wax cotton fabric is waterproof but wherever the fabric is stitched there is a possibility it will allow water in. If you find that there is a leak in your skirt you can easily touch up the area with the wax dressing provided.

How to re-wax using waxed cotton dressing

  • Using a damp sponge clean of any excess dirt from the waxed cotton.
  • Place your tin of wax cotton dressing in hot water to soften it.
  • Apply thinly with a clean cloth to you waxed cotton.
  • Paying extra attention to seams, pocket edges and any particularly worn areas.

Regular reproofing will help maintain the waxed cotton and prolong its life. You can use other re-waxing products as long as they are designed for, Wax cotton garments.

The best way to store you skirt, is to hang it up using the hanger at the back of the skirt. This will allow it to dry out and reduce the risk of it staying damp and mould forming.

    where do I begin with this AMAZING skirt 😍
    Not only is it absolutely beautiful, its 100% warm and waterproof.
    Super easy to wear, get on, get off, jump in and gallop for miles!
    First time I wore it was for 6 hours galloping on the moors in bitter wind and piercing rain, not only was I completely dry but my saddle was too .
    I cannot fault this item , its my go too for any chilly or wet day and would 100% recommend to anybody and everybody I know
    Thank you Odette for making such a beautiful , hard wearing and fantastic skirt ☆☆☆☆☆

    I absolutely love my skirt from Nouvelle Habit. I messaged back and forth with Odette to have slight adjustments made to the skirt length before I ordered and she was a pleasure to deal with. It arrived beautifully (and I mean truly beautifully) packaged, made and sent with loving care. I wear it throughout the whole of Autumn, Winter and Spring, I wear it to walk the dogs, pooh pick the fields and ride my horses. I just wish Odette made matching jackets…. I’d buy one like a shot!
