At the heart of the Burberry trench coat story is the tightly woven gabardine cloth that sets it apart from all others. Invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, gabardine revolutionised rainwear. Woven at the Burberry mill in England, today gabardine is created using many of the traditional techniques that originally distinguished it from other fabrics, alongside new, modern finishing processes that make it more water-repellent than ever before.
