About Waxed Canvas

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 fabric was first conceived of by Scottish sailors in the 1800s and has been long-loved for its durability, natural water resistance, and rugged character. Waxed canvas shows scuffs, marks, and creases that blend into a beautiful weathered patina with age.

Our waxed canvas is sourced from Scotland and the U.S. After using many different waxed canvases over the years, we’ve hand selected these for their superior quality. This is the same waxed canvas included in our maker kits and is great for all kinds of bag making projects. To learn more, check out our Essential Guide to Waxed Canvas!

Bag Requirements

Making a Klum House bag? Here’s how much yardage you’ll need:

Portsmith Tote: ¾ yard (main body), ⅝ yard (base) 

Woodland Dopp Kit: ½ yard (exterior)

Oberlin Tote: 1 yard (main body, base, interior pocket), ⅓ yard (exterior pockets) 

Fremont Tote: ½ yard (main body), ⅓ yard (exterior + interior pockets)

Cutting + Shipping


Waxed canvas will be cut in one continuous piece whenever possible.


If you purchase more than one yard, your waxed canvas may be folded. Folding can result in crease marks that will blend into the fabric with use. The appearance of unwanted creases can also be lessened with a hair dryer. Click here to learn more about waxed canvas care.

If you do not want folds, please purchase your waxed canvas in its own separate order and include a note at checkout that says you do not want shipping combined with any other orders placed. (Otherwise we try to combine multiple orders from a single customer to minimize shipping costs!)
