The Black Watch Modern Waxed is our classic Black Watch Modern tartan that has been woven with waterproofing wax. The ideal fabric for outdoorsmen, the waxed cotton stands tough against the elements as well as wear and tear.
The history of waxed cotton dates back to Scottish mills that wove sails for the British clipper fleet. The process stayed relatively the same over the years until the early 1900s when linseed oil coating made way for impregnating the fabric with paraffin wax. By inundating the fabric with wax instead of merely adding a top layer, he wax is ensured to remain inside the fabric. Similar to our leather items, the waxed cotton will patina over time, making it a completely unique item.
Comes standard with black fleece lining for increased protection.
A personalized leather label is available. On the label we can inscribe your initials, name, or shape of choice.
