Waxed canvas is once again becoming a popular choice. Unlike other thick and heavy-duty fabrics, canvas is made using a plain weave. Waxed canvas is produced by drenching the canvas fiber with wax. It is either made from cotton, linen or hemp. The quality and durability of waxed canvas depends on its thickness and density. It has become a favorite selection because it is environmentally-friendly and has a vintage profile. Not only that, waxed canvas is also strong and has hard-wearing material which makes it resistant to water and to tearing. With proper maintenance, it could also last a lifetime. Waxed canvas has a waterproof component which can repel rain and other liquid materials. However, it can become saturated when soaked in water for a long period of time.
