#8 Duck Martexin Original Wax "Plain Weave" Canvas - Charcoal. 100% Cotton. Produced by Fairfield Textile. Available in 1/2 yard (18" x 53-58") and 1 yard (36" x 53-58") increments.
Martexin Original Wax uses an exclusive Martexin® finish, which makes it technically superior to other waxed cotton fabrics in performance, longevity, and dryness of hand. Martexin Original Wax is an environmentally friendly blend of food and pharmaceutical grade waxes, and is completely non-hazardous. This unique formula gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather and as the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina. The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time.
Martexin Original Wax is a highly specialized textile that precludes normal cleaning, Just as you wouldn't wash a leather product, 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 or damp cloth is all that is needed.
As a reminder, waxed fabric is a very unique and responsive fabric and is known for marking and getting a crackly look, You can expect the fabric to be marked during transit and handling. During production, customers may crump the fabric in their hands before sewing to maximize the all over marking the fabric is known for.
