Wax Canvas Fabric – Shelter Tent Duck Oak 60″ wide
Our 8.25 oz waxed canvas fabric is ideal for bags, luggage, totes, and other adventure gear. This fabric is durable and meant to last! Unlike our Pyrosnuff and Canvak the wax (color) on this fabric won’t rub off as easily. Waxed canvas fabric can be used for many years without washing. The darker colors tend not to soil or stain as easily as lighter colors. If soiling does occur, do not launder, or use detergent to wash this fabric. Wax canvas fabrics should be treated like leather: spot clean with a hose, and then use a soft scrub brush or damp cloth. For stubborn stains, use saddle soap, or flake soap (not detergent) and this will work very well. NEVER use detergent (liquid or powdered) or even dry clean.
As we have the largest stocked inventory of waxed canvas around, if you are looking for where to buy waxed canvas, then you have come to the right online fabric store!
