A sassy clip of 'DELUGE' in action at the artisan market.  Totally waterproof, quick to put on and take off for those filthier days, but you will adore the new LIGHTWEIGHT cotton skirts!

In Britain we know a bit about rain.

Ali and I are outdoors a good deal of the time.  For a number of years we have been sporting and working in our tough and hard wearing Filthy Weather Rain Skirts. We now need to continue our trend with a less tough and more affordable version.

Our new design will be glorious! Water resistant, machine washable, breathable ‘cotton’! And it will be two in one, reversible and could be in joyous colours.  With a boost to funding this can happen sooner rather than later!

Like trousers Filthy Weather Rain Skirts protect the from your jacket to footwear, BUT MAINLY, the Filthy Weather Rain Skirt is a pleasure to wear.  That it simply and securely wraps around anything that you are wearing, even with gloved fingers is a bonus. The fixing is adjustable enabling many layers to be worn,or loaned to a friend of a different dress size. AND the new skirt will be reversible! = Two rain skirts in one.

Movie out take : We may look like a couple of twits, but our intention with the Rain Skirts is that life is too short not to enjoy a damp, rainy, cold day. We designed the Rain Skirt so that the weather would never hold us back.

Risks and challenges

Confident that we have most bases covered, there is a chance when ordering colours that there maybe surprises. We have good relationships with our suppliers and makers who are all in Britain and therefore we believe we can keep any hiccups to a minimum.

Naturally we will worry about everything, but that is a sign of how much we care. No need for you to worry, you are going to look GREAT (and feel invincible!).
