Discover - Waxed Canvas


I love to work with waxed canvas! Not familiar with this all natural material? Here’s a quick primer on all you need to know -

  • Waxed canvas is a durable, multi-purpose canvas with a very tight plied-yarn weave construction making it very strong and resistant to tearing.

  • The refined wax finish provides an additional layer of protection from rain, and moisture. It is not water proof but water resistant

  • Waxed canvas will naturally get scratched and distressed which only adds to its overall beauty - fully waxed canvas wears like leather; it will age and patina beautifully

  • Waxed canvas is vegan and is much more environmentally friendly than most other vegan leather substitutes.

  • The accidental history of waxed canvas is fascinating - originally “developed” by the British navy, 15th century sailors discovered waxed canvas by rubbing oil into sail cloth impregnating the fibers with a wind and waterproof material
