The sailors from 15th century used to oil and grease their sails to protect them from getting heavy and wet.
Out of the worn sails they would cut waterproof capes to keep themselves dry. Later waxed cotton became and instant success with the shipping and outdoor industry.
Rub the Makia Harbour Wax into fabric and heat with iron or blowdryer for a finished waterproof surface. Let it dry for 24h in a cool and dry place. Note: A weathered appearance and colour variance is typical for waxed fabrics.
Over time, climate and harsh conditions have shaped nordic life into pursuing functional and straightforward design. The initial idea of Makia was to bring timeless, durable, and functional clothing for our customers at fair prices and beyond trends. Read more about our design team and design process.
