Deadstock Dry Waxed Poplin - Ink

Sale price$9.00 per 1/2 meter
($18.00 per meter)

Keep rainy days at bay with our deadstock dry waxed poplin! Made from a blend of cotton and nylon, this poplin is treated with a water-resistant finish to keep you covered regardless of the weather. Compared to our Waxed Cotton Canvas, this fabric is much lighter in weight and boasts a dry finish that can be worn comfortably against bare skin. With a crisp drape and smooth hand, it’s the perfect match for lightweight jackets, trench coats, and accessories. The matte dry waxed finish will age beautifully over time developing distinctive cracks and a natural lived-in patina.

This fabric has been sustainably sourced from a deadstock fabric supplier.

Please note there may be creases or 'craze marks' in the finish due to the shipping process.
