Raincoat is made of waterproof cloth waterproof clothes, its applicable waterproof cloth has tape, oilcloth and plastic film, etc.
Raincoats originated in China. In the Zhou Dynasty, raincoats were made of vanilla “petrol” as a raincoat to protect against rain. This raincoat is what people often call the “Raincoat”. Modern raincoats pay attention to the air permeability of waterproof fabric, and breathable raincoats are conducive to the release of hot and humid air from the raincoat during wearing, increasing the comfort level
Raincoats originated in China. In the Zhou Dynasty, a raincoat made of vanilla “petrol” was used to protect against rain, snow, wind and sun. This raincoat was known as the “Raincoat”. Around the spring and Autumn period, the ancients had invented an oilcloth raincoat. The twenty-seventh year of Ai Gong in Zuozhuan: “Chen Chengzi made Jangge by clothes”. Du Yu’s note: “made, raincoat”. Duan Yucai of qing Dynasty thought: the rain gear is not made of grass, if today’s oilcloth clothes. According to research, at that time, people already had the understanding of the drying oil plant tong, Ebara, etc., the so-called oilcloth, is the fabric with tung oil or choi oil dry waterproof cloth. After the Northern and Southern Dynasties, the production of oilcloth raincoats was further advanced. It could be processed on silk or made from silkworm cocoon paper. In the Sui Dynasty, oilcloth was used to make raincoats. “Sui Book” once carried Emperor Yangdi view hunting rain, “around the oil clothes.” However, the oilcloth raincoats were expensive and difficult for ordinary people to get. Only the aristocrats could enjoy them. In the Tang Dynasty, the raincoats formed a combination of the coir raincoat and hat. The word “Yuge Zi” written by Zhang Zhihe of the Tang Dynasty reads, “Green Ruoli, green Coir raincoat, no return due to slanting weather”, which truly describes the working people working in raincoats. So we say “green zhu zhu” and “Green coir raincoat”, because both of them are made from the leaves of plants. In tang Dynasty, there were raincoats made of silk. In quite a long historical period, the coir raincoat and the hat are still popular raincoats, but with the development of social productivity, they are no longer thatch, but brown instead, becoming more and more exquisite in production. In the Song and Yuan Dynasties, the coir raincoat was the raincoat of the soldiers. In the Ming and Qing Dynasties, nobles also preferred the coir raincoat, such as Jia Baoyu in a Dream of Red Mansions. In rainy days, she wore a “jade pin rush” with jade grass, and a “golden vine hat” woven with thin vine skin and painted with tung oil, which aroused girls’ admiration. The coir raincoat has been used as rain-proof clothing until the appearance of the modern new plastic raincoat gradually leaves people’s sight. But in some remote mountainous areas, you can still see the coir raincoat made of plant fibers
In 1747, French engineer Francois Freno used latex obtained from rubber wood to impregnate cloth shoes and coats in this latex solution to make them waterproof. In a rubber factory in Scotland, England, there was a worker named McGuindos. One day in 1823, McGuindos was working when he accidentally dripped rubber solution onto his clothes. When he found out, he quickly wiped it with his hands, but it seemed that the rubber liquid had penetrated into his clothes. Instead of wiping it off, it was coated into a piece. Mr. McGuindos couldn’t get rid of it, so he still wore it to work. It wasn’t long before McGuinty noticed that the rubberized parts of the garment were covered in what looked like waterproof glue, an ugly but impermeable look. He simply covered the entire garment with rubber, and the result was a rain-proof garment. With the new suit, McGuinty never had to worry about rain again. The novelty soon spread, and colleagues at the factory followed McGuinty’s lead and made waterproof vinyl raincoats. Later, the increasing fame of the tape raincoat attracted the attention of Parks, an English metallurgists, who also studied this particular kind of clothing. Parks found that rubberized clothing, though impermeable, was hard and brittle, making it unattractive and uncomfortable to wear. Parks decided to make an improvement on the dress. It was not until 1884 that Parks invented and patented the technology of using carbon disulfide as a solvent, dissolving rubber, and making waterproofing supplies. So that the invention could be quickly turned into a product, parks sold the patent to a man named Charles. Raincoats began to be produced in large quantities, and the Charles Raincoat Company soon became popular all over the world. Mackindows, as everyone called his raincoat, was not forgotten, however. From then on, the word “raincoat” came to be known in English as the “Mackintosh.” After entering the twentieth century, the appearance of plastic and various waterproof fabrics made the style and color of raincoats richer and richer. After the 1960s, raincoats made from plastic sheeting or treated raincoats became widely popular
