Keeping dry in rainy weather has been the impetus for a range of innovations, including waxed cotton, woven cedar, and modern textile technologies that provide waterproofing and breathability.
Join us for a series of presentations illuminating this aspect of Seattle’s weather-driven history.
At 1 pm, historian Colin Berg reflects on the rise of Eddie Bauer and the history of Seattle’s outdoor industries. At 2 pm, Tanya Knannlein, Instructor at the School of Apparel Design & Development, demonstrates the technology behind our modern waterproof gear.
