Waxed Canvas is a cotton canvas that has been impregnated with wax and is water resistant. First used as sailcloth by 19th century mariners, waxed canvas is durable and has a look similar to distressed leather, but with the ease and breathability of cotton. Halley Stevensons' technicians have created a wax finish that has many benefits over iconic waxed cotton fabrics. C4X waxed cotton typically has four times higher water proofing characteristics when compared to traditional waxed fabrics. Unlike traditional waxed cotton, at ambient temperature C4X wax does not transfer or migrate onto other fabrics, leathers and your designer linings. This is due to the absence of any oils in C4X. The wax is also completely odorless.
