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?

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 $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.

    Spruce waxed canvas

    I recently order Spruce waxed canvas and the color is gorgeous. I plan on making a phone case with it. I’m even happy with it while I hear up to cut it.

    Spruce with Brush Brown Waxed Canvas

    Brush Brown pockets brightened up the Spruce exterior on this lined and zippered Portsmith. And the Chesnut leather and brass hardware tied it all together. I added a miniature Fremont in Spruce to make it a gift set.

    Beautiful Spruce waxed canvas

    I haven’t sewn with the spruce canvas yet but I have laid it out on the table with several options for a complimentary material to make a tote bag. It is a gorgeous rich blue - green and I can’t wait to see it sewn up. I think I will pair it with a bright limey green but it also looks wonderful with cobalt or red…many possibilities !

    Just Beautiful

    All shades of green are wonderful to me, but this one is beyond beautiful. And as always, it is sturdy without being stiff. Klum house simply has the best waxed canvas and I use it whenever I can.

    The 12 oz Spruce green waxed canvas is an amazing color. It's the darkest green I've ever come across and is just lovely! I can't wait to make my new bag out of it!
