This traditional waxed cotton in a classic Blackwatch tartan is perfect for all your hardwearing water resistant makes. It would be amazing in a backpack or fall jacket. 

This fabric is British Millerain's Chera signature wax cotton. Soft to the touch with a matte appearance, Chera ages during wear, producing unique garments with increasing aesthetic appeal. Apparel and accessories made with Chera wax must be lined to prevent wax transfer. We recommend a lining treated with a wax resistant coating, or treat your lining fabric with a wash-in waterproofing soak.

Key Information

Our family principles have never changed; we strive to bring new products to the market based on both our old and new technologies."

100% Cotton

British Millerain: "Wax is a ‘wet’ finish; it is not chemically fixed to the fabric. The wax is pressed into the cotton yarns under carefully controlled temperature and pressure - a process that we have refined and customized over more than a century. The surface of waxed cotton will mark and crease where handled and come off when scraped. These markings are not faults and are a normal, inherent characteristic of the finish. The oily feel of the fabric will also dry during garment fabrication, age and wear, leading to garments with an appearance unique to the individual wearer."

For best garment care + longevity + sustainability we recommend:

Spot clean only. Do not wash, do not dry clean, do not tumble dry, do not iron. Wait for dirt to dry and sponge off with cold water. May require re-application of wax over your garment's life.
