Waxed Cotton: Re-proofing and Repairs

We offer a re-waxing and repair/alteration service for your waxed cotton jackets such as Barbour, Belstaff, Filson, Australian Outback, Fjällräven and more, to get them back in action as your favourite foul weather outerwear.

Re-waxing with brand-specific proprietary wax will make it look almost like new and reset its original water repellent properties. 

When do you know your waxed cotton coat needs to be re-proofed?  If the jacket looks and feels dry, and water is absorbed (not beading and rolling off), it's time to give it some love.

You can Buy Barbour Thornproof re-proofing dressing on-line, or ask us and we will look after the whole process, returning it all ready to go.

We charge $70+HST for jacket rewaxing in our workshop, plus shipping if applicable. Please wipe down your jacket with a damp sponge or cloth and let dry prior to sending it to us.

Contact Us for more details on the nature of the re-proofing or repairs needs, or make an appointment to bring your jacket in for a consultation.

Waxed Black Watch Tartan or plain 6 oz. waxed cottons available for patches.
