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 $10 surcharge for rolled fabric is added below.

WAX: A blend of petroleum jelly, mineral oil, and paraffin. No animal by-products. Contains post-consumer waste products. Biodegradable.


BOLT WIDTH: 59” / 150 cm


WEIGHT: 12 oz, 400g/m² (post-wax weight)


OPACITY: Opaque


CHARACTERISTICS: This fabric has a dry waxed finish with a firm handle, resulting in a distressed appearance when handled.


RECOMMENDED USES: Great for all of Klum House's bag-making projects, as well as upholstery, aprons, and work wear.

FOLDED OR ROLLED?

FOLDED: Waxed canvas will be cut in one continuous piece whenever possible. As a default, the fabric will be folded, resulting in creases that will blend into the fabric with use and can be lessened with a hair dryer. Click here to learn more about waxed canvas care.  


ROLLED: If you’re purchasing at least one continuous yard of waxed canvas and would like to guarantee your fabric is rolled, add a $10 shipping surcharge to your order by clicking the checkbox below. This covers carrier fees for the extra-long package. If ordering multiple colors of waxed canvas, this charge only needs to be added once.


ADD $10 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.

    Receiving my package from Klum never disappoints. The exceptional care provided to ensure my fabric was not marred or creased was par for the course. The quality of the product exceeded expectations. Shipping was speedy, a luxury these days!

    A dream to sew

    I write this as an unashamed waxed canvas addict. I cannot stop making bags and now every one of my female family members will be receiving a tote made from this beautiful waxed canvas for Christmas. The guys are getting Dopp kits. I ordered crimson, burgundy, navy and dark brown and I am over the moon for the crimson. This fabric is lighter weight than some I have bought off Etsy, but I like the tight weave and smooth look of this fabric. It arrived nicely rolled and in decent time via UPS. I want to try all the colors now!

    Wonderful Waxed Canvas!

    Really high quality waxed canvas, smooth edges with no folds or crinkling. It was shipped rolled with care and the color is well matched to the image which is helpful! Can't wait to sew with it!

    Love Klum House Waxed Canvas

    I love the hand of your waxed canvas. It’s not as thick and board stiff as others I’ve used. Surprisingly, the finished project had great structure…more than I expected from the light feel of it! Definitely will be ordering more.

    Awesome Quality and FAST shipping!

    The canvas’s weight is a little lighter than what I usually work with - which makes the lighter colors more sheer, but I love them all! Ordered four colors that look even better in person than the site. Very satisfied and will buy more!

    Beautiful Vibrant Fabric for Bag Making!!

    I’d never sewn with waxed canvas before, but was super excited to try it for a tote! I combined a few patterns to come up with my own design, and I love the result!! Easy to sew on my domestic Brother machine, just had to clean it up afterward. Definitely recommend this fabric to anyone wanting to experiment with waxed canvas!! Thank you!

    Best waxed canvas out there!

    I tried several different waxed canvases and Klum House’s is the best! The 8 oz. is easy to sew on my domestic machine and everything I’ve sewn came out beautiful! I can’t wait to order more fabric but I do wish they had more colors to chose from.
