  • Land & Sea-worthy

    Waxed cotton originated in the 15th century, when Scottish sailors applied fish oil to sail cloths to boost their durability and water-resistance. The sailors also wore the excess material as capes, the predecessors of today’s fisherman’s slicker.

  • Well Seasoned

    Our waxed cloth combines the durability of cotton with water-resistant wax paraffin. The result is a flexible fabric that resembles leather. It’s strong, abrasion resistant, and boasts a distinguished, worn-in patina that improves with age, just like a baseball glove.

  • Take Care

    We recommend reapplying wax paraffin to waxed cotton periodically for enhanced performance and appearance. If your bag gets scratched, use a hairdryer to heat the top layer, spreading the pliable finish for renewed polish.
