Halley Stevensons: Waxed cotton fabrics created with conscious innovation


Halley Stevensons’ original waxed cotton fabrics have been designed to get you home and dry since 1864. Through conscious innovation and time-honed craft, the Dundee-based company offers textiles which are a sustainable alternative to synthetic polymers and are packed full of character.

Weatherproof fabrics help us stay warm and dry in the toughest conditions. From urban commuters to seasoned explorers, distant ancestors to future generations, we rely on these materials to protect us from the elements.


By learning from the environment, Halley Stevensons has developed wax finishes that are robust, stand the test of time and are ready to respond to whatever mother nature throws at us.

The company’s ‘Low-Impact’ production philosophy also sets it apart.

The firm uses significantly less water and energy, avoids harmful chemicals and ultimately produces less waste than the industry standard. Halley Stevensons actually uses by-products from other industries to help prevent resources making it to landfill.

As a partner to some of the world’s leading fashion houses, Halley Stevensons undertakes all dyeing, processing and finishing from its factory in Dundee. This keeps the footprint small while maintaining traceability at every stage — it also offers a deeper level of collaboration to clients when developing bespoke fabrics.
