Product Details

Our waxed canvas is sold in 1/2 yard increments. Each additional “quantity” adds a ½ yard to your order.

QUANTITY

  • 1 = ½ yard
  • 2 = 1 yard
  • 3 = 1 ½ yards

DETAILS

  • Base Fabric: 100% Better Cotton Initiative certified cotton canvas
  • Wax: A blend of petroleum jelly, mineral oil, and paraffin
  • Bolt Width: 59"–61"

NOTE ON COLOR: We do our best to photograph colors accurately but there may be slight variation depending on your screen. Moss is very dark, almost black, and lightens a little with use. Marigold and natural are slightly transparent when layered on top of dark or patterned fabric. If you’d like to see a color in person before you buy, order a swatch!

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)

Maywood Totepack: ⅝ yard (main body), ½ yard (exterior + interior pockets)

Slabtown Backpack: 3/4 yard (main body), ½ yard (accent)

Cutting + Shipping

CUTTING

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

FOLDING + SHIPPING

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!)

    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.

    Great weight!

    After ordering from 5 or 6 different vendors, I think yours is the best weight for the totes and backpacks I sew and sell online. Great saturated colors too!
