Our fabric is sold by the ½ yard. (1 Quantity = ½ yard)

NOTE: Orders of one yard or more will be folded, resulting in creases, unless the $15 surcharge for rolled fabric is added below.

FOLDED OR ROLLED?

ROLLED: If you’re purchasing at least one continuous yard of waxed canvas and would like to guarantee your fabric is rolled, add a $15 shipping surcharge to your order by clicking the checkbox below. This covers carrier fees for packages longer than 22". If ordering multiple colors of waxed canvas, this charge only needs to be added once.


ADD $15 Surcharge for Rolled Fabric

Waxed canvas is a densely-woven cotton fabric that has been saturated with wax, giving it an extra layer of protection against the elements. This heritage material has been long-loved for its durability, natural water-resistance, and rugged character. Waxed canvas shows marks and creases that blend into a lovely weathered patina over time, similar to leather. Klum House hand-selects the very best waxed canvas from mills in Scotland and the United States.
