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
