All Cottonwood waxed canvas goods are made with Martexin Original Wax Waxed Canvas, produced in the US since 1930. 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 spot cleaning with a damp cloth is all that is needed. Over time, you may want to refinish your item. This can be done with Martexin Original Wax Refinishing Compound, available for purchase here.
You may notice a slight waxy feel to your new item. This is normal and will dissipate quickly.
The alternative to veg tanned is chrome-tanned leather. It often has its edges treated with acrylic varnish, causing it to crack, peel, and split after just a few years. In addition, the mineral chromium is a heavy metal and is quite toxic to the environment as well as to the people processing it.
Further benefits of veg tanned leather include:
Veg tanned leather will benefit from the occasional conditioning or moisturizing. Basic olive oil is an excellent leather moisturizer. Just rub it onto the leather, allow to soak in and then wipe off. You can also use a commercially available leather conditioner.
The quality is excellent and I expect to tackle a lot of art and garden projects with my new retirement apron!
The end product is wonderful. I got this for my fianc and he loved it as it was something he has always wanted. The canvas is semi stretchy, flexible and breatheable.
