Waxed Canvas: Our waxed canvas is an extremely durable fabric that requires minimal care. However, just as you should not wash fabric upholstery or a leather product such as shoes, gloves, or jackets, you should not dry clean or use detergent on your waxed canvas products. Wax fabrics have been successfully used for many years without washing.
A periodic cleaning with a hose, damp cloth or soft scrub brush for heavy dirt is all that is needed. Your shower works equally as well. Sometimes a mild bar or flake soap (not detergent) or even Saddle soap will remove stubborn stains.
Darker shades are more successful than lighter shades in not showing soiling. To be completely satisfied with the performance of your waxed canvas fabrics, there are several important issues to remember: TRY water first with a slight brushing or scrubbing. USE a little bar soap or flaked soap or Saddle soap, only if necessary, on specific areas only. Sometimes a small amount of ammonia will help. NEVER use detergent, liquid or powdered. NEVER dry clean as the powerful environmentally damaging chlorinated solvents will remove the finish. Use and enjoy your waxed cotton product. It is rugged and made for active outdoor use. It is weather-tough and made for your next adventure.
Leather: Your leather bag is ready to use for many years to come. Care for it like you would a leather jacket or shoes. You can use a leather creme to clean up scuffs. If you have a Nubuck leather that is more porous, we will treat it with waterproofing spray for you. You will need to re-treat it about every 3-5 years to keep it water repellent.
