Traditional Oilskin

Made for Driza-Bone

Traditional Oilskin


The Traditional Oilskin first came into existence in the 1890’s when British sailor Emilius Le Roy had the idea of creating an indestructible wet-weather jacket made from recycled ship sails that were treated with oil. From here, the oilskin legend was born and would later become the famous wet-weather coat and an Australian workwear staple.

Today the base cloth is still a fine 2-ply cotton in a high count weave that is treated in Australia with a natural base wax. This ensures Driza-Bone Oilskin is windproof, waterproof and breathable. Products in Driza-Bone oilskin are now styled and cut to provide the function, comfort and durability for the way we live today.
