When we receive your wax jacket, it is checked all over before the old layer of wax is removed and is then thoroughly cleaned. Once cleaned, a fresh layer of wax is evenly applied to the garment, taking great care to avoid the collar, zips and other fastenings before it is re-proofed. It is the re-proofing that ensures the wax is watertight. The first thing you will notice when you receive your wax jacket back is that the colour brightness has been restored to its original condition; it will look as good as new. Your jacket will now be beautifully protected from grime and dirt because the wax traps it and prevents any muck from penetrating into the fabric. The wax also protects the fabric from sunlight.
