Originating in the 1980's, the idea of an indestructible wet weather jacket was conceived by Scottish sailor, E. Le Roy, and initially fabricated from the recycled ship sails treated with oil.
118 years on, purchased from previous owner the British company Halstead, Driza-Bone is a 100% Australian owned and manufactured company.
Inspired by traditional workwear and military uniforms, the first Driza-Bone garments were originally oiled with paraffin, beeswax and linseed oil. Nowadays, the traditional oilskin garments are produced alongside a new product range focusing on a wax finish, Driza-Bone has seamlessly transformed their brand into a popular street wear clothing label, which still aligns with the ideals and commitment to longevity, comfort and simplicity, and draws on the original hardy workwear that we all know and expect from one of Australia's most iconic labels.
