Beach Bag | Waxed Canvas
Our beach bag is made from waxed canvas, a fabric that has long stood the test of time. It is water + stain resistant. Made in our classic minimalist design approach with a go-anywhere functionality. This tote features 3 interior pockets for organizing books, a laptop, phone and anything else you need to keep from falling into the bottom of your purse-pit.
We chose to use off-cut leather for the double-reinforced handles to reduce waste as much as possible in this carry-all. And the exterior is labelless so you can truly make this everyday bag your own over time as the waxed canvas crinkles and softens with use like your favourite linen top.
- Size | L36 x H34.5 x W9 cm
Why We Chose Them | The concept of waxed cotton was originally developed in the early 15th century by sailors. Scottish North Sea herring fleets operating from east coast ports began treating flax sailcloth with fish oils and grease in an attempt to water proof their sails, keeping them light and efficient.
The beauty of waxed cotton is its durability and longevity, it is built to last. The fabrics are breathable, the wax adjusting to ambient temperature to be softer/more breathable in warm weather and stiffer/more wind proof in cold conditions. Its proofing can be maintained by the end user, by applying wax into the surface, keeping it soft, supple and weather-resistant. The densely woven cotton is strong and reliable, while the finish ensures that the fabric looks better with age. The wax naturally picks up marks and creases through use, which adds to the character of the fabric itself.
