Description: Our Authentic Waxed 10.10 oz Army Duck is strong 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, moisture & time. Waxed canvas has a long lifespan behaving much like leather in the way it patinas and appears ageless. Waxed canvas requires only minimal care to maintain its appearance and can go years without having to be washed. The wax formula is non-toxic and non-hazardous. This advanced formulation performs great in both hot and cold temperatures. Unlike many waxed products our waxed canvas WILL NOT "gunk" up your sewing machine. It sews great! It is very high quality and will not transfer to other surfaces. Waxed Canvas is commonly used to make outdoor gear, backpacks, tote bags, hats, equestrian accessories, vests, dog gear, dog beds, work aprons, and more!

Testing: Fabric should be tested for your specific requirements prior to cutting as no claims are allowed on processed goods.
Ordering: Please make sure to order an adequate amount of fabric to finish your project. Dye lots can vary slightly and an exact match cannot be guaranteed if a follow up order is necessary in the future. Orders less than 10yds will be shipped to you folded. If you are ordering less than 10yds and you would like to have your fabric shipped on a roll you will need to purchase a $10 Core Fee Upgrade.
Washing Instructions: We recommend using a hose to rinse off your waxed canvas. If you need to remove dirty spots or stains simply use a soft scrub brush. For stubborn spots it is okay to use a mild bar soap or saddle soap. It is best to allow fabric to air dry. You will notice that by folding and creasing waxed canvas it creates burnishes or "craze marks" which is a part of the unique character of waxed canvas. A medium heat iron over craft paper or heat from a hair dryer will restore the uniform surface.

Excellent fabric for Bags and Accessories.Waxed Canvas Totes are my best seller
I purchased the "Chocolate" Waxed Army Duck Canvas to have a custom motorcycle seat made to match my waxed cotton Belstaff jacket. Although I was not the one to work directly with the product, my upholsterer did mention this was a VERY good canvas and found it easy to work with. I wasn't sure if this would be a cool and unique idea or one that would just turn out to be a total waste of money, but it came out great - in part due to my upholster's talent, and also - due to the strength of the material itself as it has held up as a motorcycle seat so far without any signs of wear. I only wish the "Chocolate" was a darker brown to better match the color of my jacket.
Also, I want to point out that it shipped on a roll and arrived quickly and without any issues, cosmetically or otherwise. I was also very pleased with Big Duck Canvas and the customer service provided by Trisha who personally walked over my order to ensure it shipped on time. I would highly recommend Big Duck Canvas to anyone.
I really love this waxed canvas fabric. I use it to make haversacks. It's a high-quality wax job that does NOT gum up my vintage sewing machine.
I do wish it came in olive drab and khaki. I will order more in the future!
