Mackintosh Rainwear

In 1822, Scottish chemist Charles Macintosh (without the 'k') developed the process of spreading rubber onto cotton to create the world's first formal waterproof fabric, signaling the arrival of the original Mackintosh coat.Today Mackintosh is a firmly established global brand that combines updated technology with traditional techniques to create the modern-day "Mac". Based in Cumberland, Scotland, every expert coat maker undertakes a three-year apprenticeship to ensure that they can construct outerwear to Mackintosh's unique specifications.
