Dating as far back as the 1800's, waxed canvas has been used in the sailing industries for centuries now, originally designed in Scotland by coating cotton canvas with paraffin wax to waterproof sail cloths and seamen's capes. Recently we've been seeing a resurgence of this durable and waterproof material throughout the design and fashion industries and we couldn't be happier. The utilitarian properties of waxed canvas mixed with sleek designs is a happy marriage of beauty and functionality.
