A natural organic linen in a plain weave, impregnated with bees wax
This tightly woven, heavy (250 gr/m2) and firm fabric is most suitable for bags, stiff coverings and coats. The molding of the materials will create fine cracks and marks on the surface of the linen. This effect will enhance the distinctive character, creating a unique and authentic look for your project. It is one of the heavier fabrics in our waxed collection.
Whereas most waxed fabrics are treated with paraffin (derived from petrol), we used beeswax. It has good water shedding properties, is biodegradable and... smells a lot better. Beeswaxed fabrics tend to soften as the temperature rises. Because the beeswax is a natural product it degrades and loses effectiveness over time. It may then be necessary to rewax the garments or accessories made from it.
The organic flax was grown in the EU and processed into linen in Europe. Waxing is done in Europe as well.
