Waxed canvas fabric is very popular, and why not? It's finish makes it water repellent while helping increase the life of the cotton canvas. Our 10 oz. Saddle Brown waxed canvas is a great color choice.
This durable, multipurpose canvas is woven with a tight, plied yarn weave construction so it's very strong and resistant to tearing. It's refined wax finish provides an additional layer of protection helping to shed rain and moisture.
One of the reasons waxed canvas is so popular is that it requires only minimal care to maintain its appearance and can go years without having to be washed. Our wax formula is non-toxic and non-hazardous, and performs great in both hot and cold temperatures. Customers regularly tell us "it sews great!" The wax is very high quality and will not transfer to other surfaces under normal use.
Common uses for waxed fabric include outdoor gear, backpacks, tote bags, hats, equestrian accessories, vests, dog gear, dog beds, work aprons and so much more.
Waxed cotton canvas has a long lifespan, and is similar to leather in the way it patinas and wears over time. Normal handling will create 'craze marks' or wrinkles. Not only is this is to be expected, it is in fact part of the highly-desirable and unique characteristics of waxed canvas. These marks can be reduced with the heat from a hair dryer, though most people prefer the 'worn' look, the 'character' that waxed canvas develops with regular use.
