WAXED CANVAS BAGS
These waxed canvas bags are made in Nelson, B.C, Canada. Waxed canvas is water resistant yet still breathable, and over time develops a rich character similar to leather. Waxed canvas was originally used by sailors in the 19th century because of It's water resistance and durability, and is still loved today for those same qualities.
The leather used in these bags is veg tanned Italian leather, which will soften with age. Vegetable tanning is the true "chromium free" method, and does not have any harmful chemicals. It is an old world process that takes advantages from the tannic acids naturally found in some plant species by using barks, branches, leaves, and even some fruits in specific techniques. Production time is approximately 2 months, and values a slower life and an eco sustainable industry.
