7,95

Best quality dry oilskin made in the UK. 150 cm wide, 245 gsm.

A mustard olive green. The finish is drier and crisper than other Merchant & Mills oilskins with a matte appearance. Hand wash only, do not iron just finger press. Unlike normal oilskin there would be no oil transfer so you don’t need to line your garment or bag. Ideal for bags and accessories and particularly fab for an outdoor Top 64 and Landgate top.

This type of oilskin is water resistant, so this means that the water doesn’t completely run off it, but it won’t come through to the other side either. It is treated with an emulsified wax which is heat-processed into the cloth for a longer lasting finish and higher performance. The finish is vegan.

This fabric is sold per 25cm so to order a continous piece of 1metre please enter 4 in the quantity box.

Description

Merchant & Mills Dry Oilskin, Olive is a dry oilskin by Merchant & Mills’ Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field. They created their company in 2010 to elevate sewing to its proper place in the creative world, respecting the craftsmanship it entails. They produce a range of card patterns and really useful kits. In contrast to the pretty and flowery image of the average haberdasher, they present sewing of notions in stark and utilitarian packaging.

Merchant & Mills continues to grow steadily. They keep evolving and developing as experience and ideas demand. Carolyn and Roderick now travel the world in search of unique and beautiful fabrics, finding aesthetic and practical inspiration along the way. Their products are stocked in the world’s most respected outlets. The company also successfully collaborated with London’s V&A Museum and Alexander McQueen.

As a result, new patterns and products emerge. They are never rushed to market, but slowly developed to be exemplary, desirable and pragmatic.
Their ethos is to respect the roots of sewing, from trade to home dressmaking, as they inspire more people to find the satisfaction of simply making. To this end, they have published three instructive, illustrated books.

They took the decision to put style to work in their presentation and packaging, as a language that would attract the very people that had hitherto overlooked sewing. Equally they were determined to include the steadfast makers and menders who had continued regardless of current trends.

In supplying patterns, fabrics and tools that allowed the creation of a desirable functioning wardrobe, they offer a viable, wearable alternative to the indistinguishable options of the high street.

Carolyn Denham has a degree in Fashion design and has worked in New York, Italy and London.
Roderick Field is a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery.
