Waxed cotton woven fabric. This is the real deal! This stunning waxed canvas is manufactured by The British Millerain Co., the original manufacturer of waxed cotton for outerwear and the world’s leading specialist in waxed cotton fabric. This waxed cotton is part of their Chera collection, a signature fabric for the company. This waxed cotton canvas is a wonderful choice for a stunning transitional jacket.

Waxed cotton gives you a gorgeous retro feel, and will age with with distinctive cracks and patina, similar to your favourite leather jacket.
When you receive the fabric, please note there will be creases or 'craze marks' in the wax due to the shipping process. Fret not, these are not permanent; see below for tips for restoring your fabric in the care section.
We suggest using thicker Jeans/Denim needles when sewing with waxed cotton canvas.

Care: Do not use warm or hot water on this product at any time. Do not dry clean. Do not machine wash. Do not tumble dry. These processes will strip the wax finish.
To clean, start by brushing off dirt with a soft brush. If washing is needed, hand wash with cold water using a cloth of soft brush. For stubborn spots or stains, use a mild bar soap or flake soap sparingly. Test the soap you plan to use, as many stronger detergents will break down the wax.
You can clear up crease marks by using a heat blowing gun, hair dryer, or iron without steam at a low heat (with a protective paper layer between the fabric and the iron). Remember that any amount of warm or hot water can easily strip the wax and damage the finish. Check out this Youtube tutorial for more information. You can also re-wax your fabric by using Tex Wax™ refinishing product or a fabric safe paraffin wax.
