Not often does a brand inspire enough to have a garment named after them, but that is the case with British brand Mackintosh.
First sold in 1824, the rubberised cotton raincoats named after its Scottish inventor Charles Macintosh filled a large market gap in a time when wool or cotton garments was the only available option for outerwear and always insufficient protection from the rain.

To find out more we took a trip to Cumbernauld near Glasgow for a tour of the Mackintosh factory assisted by Marketing Director Mr. John Sugden, where they produce all of the rubberised coats.
