The Driza-bone company, established in 1898 has a long history going back to the sea. Sailors on the windjammers that sailed the southern oceans smeared their clothing and hair with oils to protect them from the elements. A Scottish sailor, Edward (Emilius) Le Roy used the torn sails of his ship to make long coats and hats which when painted with a mixture of oils became protective wet weather wear. When the sailors returned to land, people heard about their coats. With alterations to suit horse riding, the coats became known as Driza-bones alluding to the dried bones found in the many arid areas of Australia. T.E Pearson, (the son of the founder of Pearson Soap) brought some of the LeRoy coats to Australia and improved the proofing formula that is still used to proof the coats today.
