Otter Wax — An In-Depth Look

Waxed canvas is a really interesting fabric that we're loving these days.  It is not only functional and water resistant, but it also gives your fabric a cool, distressed, leather-like look as it ages.

We currently stock two beautiful colors of waxed canvas, but we also just started carrying Otter Wax so you can wax your own!  Waxing your own canvas takes a little bit of time and effort, but it opens up so many possibilities.  Factory waxed canvas only comes in so many colors and weights, and the industrial waxing process definitely bumps the price tag up.  With Otter Wax, you can get the waxed look on any canvas you want, or maybe even some fun different fabrics!

But first, let's go over exactly how this process works.
