Water resistance

One of the oldest textile finishes is water resistance – processes for making fabrics resistant to water date back to ancient times. While our ancestors would have used fat, wax or oils, our modern high-grade finishing methods use suitable chemical substances to achieve this aim. They make it more difficult for water to penetrate the material without affecting its breathability. Depending on the type of fabric, we achieve durable water repellency using a range of technologies and processes.
