WAXWEARTM is a cotton-based fabric impregnated with waxes and oils based on a formula that is generations old. The Martexin®finishes we use exclusively have been distilled from years of family experiences dating back to the 1880's when their legacy of dyeing and finishing fabrics was established in the United states.
It has been passed on for 7 generations from father to son. The treatment affords the fabric a lifelong resistance to inclement weather. The cotton allows the fabric to breathe while the waxes impart a unique, well-worn and comfortable patina. It enhances the look of traditional outerwear for both rural and urban workplaces, and provides an urban feel to fashion forward concepts. Waxwear is a truly authentic and proven American made product.
