Description

What Is Waxed Canvas?

As a long-lasting alternative to leather, waxed canvas is a heavy-duty, dyed cotton fabric created using a plain weave. In the days before Dacron® and synthetic sail material, waxed canvas was originally used by sailors due to its incredible durability, water resistance and ability to catch the wind better than unwaxed canvas. Today, waxed canvas is made using natural wax coatings.

This heavy waxed canvas is coated in a premium beeswax for optimal performance. The beeswax coating is heavier, making this canvas stiffer than our paraffin-coated canvas.

Because of its wax coating, this canvas will patina beautifully when it is folded, scratched or scuffed, creating a rich, rugged look. This means you will be able to see the marks made in the fabric as they will appear lighter than the original fabric color. This gives a more unique, craftsman-inspired look to many projects. Like a full grain leather, waxed canvas looks better with age and wear!

Austrailian Cotton

Cotton sourced exclusively from Australia. Australian cotton is considered some of the best in the world because of its high quality and consistency. The country’s favorable growing conditions, including ample sunlight and water, allow for the cultivation of cotton that is both high-yielding and long-staple. Additionally, the industry is known for its use of modern technology and sustainable farming practices, which helps to ensure that the cotton is not only high-quality, but also produced in an environmentally-friendly manner.

DuraWax is not intended for upholstery or furniture applications.
