Waxed canvas is incredibly popular, and one of the primary reasons is the look. It behaves somewhat like leather in that it ages or patinas over time. With regular use, you'll see wrinkles and 'craze marks' develop in this material. That's what gives waxed canvas its unique appearance. In a true black, this fabric can be used like leather of goretex to create water resistant bags, aprons or even jackets such as the Kelly Anorak from Closet Case Patterns or the Landgate Parka from Merchant and Mills.

Care Instructions: Do not use warm or hot water on this product at any time. Do not dry clean. Do not machine wash. Do not tumble dry. These processes will strip the wax finish. To clean, start by brushing off dirt with a soft brush. If washing is needed, hand wash with cold water using a cloth of soft brush. For stubborn spots or stains, use a mild bar soap or flake soap sparingly. Test the soap you plan to use, as many stronger detergents will break down the wax. You can minimize the appearance of creases and unwanted marks with a hair dryer on low heat
