Hessnatur Organic Cotton Waxed Jacket

Why should I buy the Waxed Jacket from Hessnatur instead of one from a certain iconic British maker, you ask? Well, for one, the Hessnatur jacket is made from 100% organic cotton, and treated with all-natural beeswax, so it’s a lot more earth-friendly. Two, it’s cut and sewn in a certified Fair Trade factory in the EU, so you know the people that made it are well treated and paid an equitable wage. Three, its plaid liner is made from 100% virgin wool instead of cotton, so it’s warmer. And four, the Hessnatur jacket costs almost $100 less. Add to that an equally classic shape, detachable hood, and sleeves that actually cover your wrists, and I’d say that certain iconic British maker has some serious competition on its hands. Now, if only the Hessnatur came in green…

    nice jacket, but that printed yoke inside belongs on a $9.99 garment. tacky.

    You forgot to mention that you don’t have to pay an extra $50 for the hood!

    I like the jacket, but when I checked out the website it said shipping would take 16 weeks. Seems like a long time. Do you have any experience ordering through Hessnatur?

      Yeah, I noticed most of the sizes went on back order.

      I haven’t ordered from them yet. Given that they’re based in Germany, I would definitely email them before sending any payment.

    the german website says they got issues with the new cottoncanvas and the wax but they work hard to fix and and to keep their high standards. this might explain the long delivery time. bye alex
