Details:Hancock is a British label that produces rubberised outerwear in Scotland. Inspired by the English inventor Thomas Hancock, who patented vulcanisation in 1843, all Hancocks ' Vulcanised Articles' are handmade at our factory in Cumbernauld.
Each Article is first cut then sewn by their team of machinists before it is passed to one of the experienced coat-makers. Interior seams and pockets are glued and taped by hand; a process called 'smearing' before being rolled flat using a hardened steel hand roller then finished with a rubber cleaning wheel tool.
All Hancocks Vulcanised Articles are handmade exclusively in rubber bonded, natural cloths such as cotton, wool or silk. Still produced at the original Victorian mill in England, two-layers of cloth are bonded with a layer of rubber in-between creating an impenetrable barrier ensuring the finished cloth is 100% waterproof.
