         Waxed canvas Tote Bag
There are many similarities and parallels between waxed cotton and leather which make them handsome partners. From durability and longevity, to how both will evolve over time naturally pick up marks and creases through use, creating a beautiful patina and adding character to the piece, unique to the owner. Ultimately creating a one of a kind product.
Both materials can be maintained by the user, by applying waxes. The natural oils can be put back into the leather just as the waxed canvas weather proofing can be topped up. The waxed cotton will adjust to ambient temperature to be softer in warm weather and stiffer in cold conditions, as the leather can also be affected by its environment.
We have sourced our waxed canvas from the great British outdoor innovator, Halley Stevensons. Based in Dundee, Scotland. Boasting over 150 years of heritage and experience, their waxed canvas is arguably the finest available and is sought after throughout the world.
