People

This smock was made in house by Yarmouth Oilskins. Yarmouth Stores Ltd employ a dedicated team of 20 machinists and pattern cutters many of whom have been with the company for 25 years (the company has been in operation at the same site for over 100 years). Brothers We Stand have spoken in person with the factory manager and an employee who shared that it is a family-like atmosphere at the factory. This is supported by the length of time many workers have stayed at the factory.

Planet

Waxed cotton is cotton which has been treated with a wax coating to produce a fabric which has water repellent properties. The wax used in these smocks are petroleum jelly and paraffin waxes which are waste products from cracking crude oil to make fuels such as gasoline. The processes used to apply the waxes to a cotton fabric are also low impact, meaning we do less damage to the environment than many established manufacturing methods.

Unlike synthetic man-made coatings, this wax is fully biodegradable can be regularly reproofed to maintain performance for many years, making them uniquely sustainable.
