It's well known that waxed canvas is super popular. If you haven't used this yet, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. Well, consider the similarities to leather: a very long lifespan, and the way it patinas and wears over time. With use, you'll see create 'craze marks', wrinkles or other little marks.
