This backpack was made of one of the best waxed canvas on the market. 15 oz Duck Martexin Original Wax canvas is a durable, natural, time tested, and water-repellent fabric. The American family-owned company has used the same process for over 170 years. Duck Canvas with wax finish was the first choice waterproof clothing for the British armed forces during World War II and the traditional fabric used by the US government for equipage items. As the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina, unique for every bag. The waxed finish is environmentally friendly, food and pharmaceutical graded, completely non-hazardous.

✓ Martexin Original Wax Care
Martexin Original Wax is a highly specialized textile that precludes normal cleaning. Just as you wouldn't wash a leather product such as shoes, gloves, or jackets, you won’t be able to wash or dry clean your Martexin Original Wax. Wax fabrics have been successfully used for many years without washing. A periodic cleaning with a hose, damp cloth is all that is needed. Bare areas can be refinished with Martexin Original Wax refinishing compound which can help restore the wax finish.
