Our stunning, Waxed Cotton fabric comes all the way from Scotland. It is thoroughly saturated with wax to make it dirt and water repellent!
First used as sailcloth by 19th century mariners, waxed canvas has slightly waxy feel and gets a rugged mottled look with use. The surface shows creases and marks easily, contributing to the character of the fabric. You can speed up this process by deliberately scrunching it in your hands then smoothing it out.
The wax used is bio degradable and petroleum free, has excellent water shedding properties and acts as a highly resistant, protective layer on the Cotton! Simply wipe down your pieces with a damp cloth to remove dirt and debris! Want to reverse the waxy patina and start fresh? Use your hairdryer on high to saturate the wax back into the fabric, and start the process all over again!
When your piece is ready for a refresh, order our waxing bar to add a new, protective layer to your piece! Cool? Yeah, we think so too.
Waxed Cotton Canvas outer, topped with an 18k gold plated HOUND bar. Solid Brass hardware.
Please allow up to 15 days for your piece to be hand crafted. Trust us, it's worth the wait!
