Waxed cotton is one of the top technical fabrics ever invented to perform a specific function. It first appeared in Scotland at the end of the eighteenth century to make sails for commercial vessels more waterproof and therefore more efficient. Thanks to its incredible strength, it then started to be used for sailors' capes. Soon, waxed cotton was adopted by the English Army, and from there it started to be used by hunters, farmers and bikers. Although the new technical fabrics that appeared in the 1960's replaced many of its uses, waxed cotton continues to be a staple in the wardrobe of all outdoor enthusiasts and is still loved for the old-fashioned appearance it acquired over time.
Beretta began with a careful exploration of the waxed cotton tradition and then developed its own version, specifically for Beretta-wear aficionados. The Beretta Wax treatment is unique because it takes the best original English fabrics and then treats them with a series of processes derived from the age-old know-how of sailors and carried out via a precise sequence of manual operations that alternate washing, sanding and waxing. The result is an extremely comfortable garment that does not feel oily, needs no special treatment and is completely odorless.
So, by wearing a Beretta Waxed Cotton garment, you enter a tradition that started with sailors and explorers, to which you will undoubtedly add your own memories while enjoying the outdoors in style and comfort.
