Strong, durable, cotton based fabric treated with grades and qualities of waxes. These fabrics stay flexible at cold temperatures, good water repellency, non-transferability. Due to the nature of this wax, expect greater shade variation in comparison to standard dyed cotton fabrics. The unique property of this canvas is to have crack or crease marks. Most times these can be removed by using a medium hot iron over brown paper.
Uses: bags, pouches, saddle packs, tote bags, backpacks, luggage, wilderness packs, adventure gear, apparel, turnout blankets, rainwear, dog beds, vests and many other applications where defense against the elements is critical!

Waxed Canvas – 8.25 oz Shelter Tent Duck Orange 60″ wide

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. Waxed canvas has been used for many years without washing. 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. Waxed canvas fabric should be treated like leather, spot clean with a hose, soft scrub brush or damp cloth. For stubborn stains, use saddle soap, or flake soap (not detergent) and this will work effectively. NEVER use detergent (liquid or powdered) or even dry clean.

Originally, waxed cotton duck fabrics were used in England and Scotland as sails on ships. Waxed cotton duck can even be traced back to Egyptians using linseed oil as their wax. Waxed canvas can sometimes become stiff if exposed to colder temperatures for a long period of time.
