Fabric was waterproofed in the 19th century in linen and linseed oil. In the 20th century this changed to cotton and paraffin wax - a more durable and breathable fabric. An icon of the outdoors, on the riverbanks to boats across the oceans, in farms and in forests. Waxed Cotton is also associated with motorcycling.
