Waxed canvas commonly forms the substance of our bags and garments. The tightly woven cotton yarns produce an incredibly durable fabric that’s trusted for its natural resistance to weather and abrasion. Constructed with a waxed 10 oz. duck canvas from British Millerain, our work shirt provides the uncompromising performance and protection demanded by the task at hand. Raw copper snaps reinforced by leather washers are set at the placket, cuffs and right breast pocket. All stress points are bar tacked and each seam is flat felled and double needle chain stitched with runoff detail on the sides. Sewn in California, finished in our Michigan shop. The model is 6ft, 170 lbs and is wearing a Medium.

Our waxed canvas is simply a duck canvas with wax-impregnated cotton yarns. This results in a fabric that’s as strong as duck canvas with an added layer of protection against water, wind and agitation.
Waxed canvas bags and garments can be used for months (even years) without requiring care. When caring for waxed canvas, avoid machine washing and submerging in water. Spot cleaning or hosing off the product is recommended. Hang dry only. Re-wax after prolonged use with an all-natural fabric wax to maintain weather resistance.
Formed from 100% cotton yarns, waxed canvas will eventually deteriorate with heavy or regular use. We encourage sending your bag or garment to us for repair before large holes or blowouts appear.
