WHAT IS WAXED AND WASHED CANVAS?
Waxed canvas is heavy cotton that has been impregnated with a paraffin-based wax. Depending on the type and amount of wax, the process can make the cotton canvas water repellent or waterproof. Washed canvas is heavy cotton that is washed several times to give the item and used look. Widely used from the mid-19th century to the mid-1950s, the product, which originated in the sailing industry in England and Scotland, became widely used by many for waterproofing
WHAT IS FULL GRAIN LEATHER?
Any leather which has not undergone snuffing, sanding, buffing or any other process to eliminate any imperfections is called full-grain leather. It is by far the most durable and strongest of all kinds of leather. It retains the layer of skin which is found just below the hair, giving it breath-ability and resistance to wear. It develops a beautiful patina over time, and is generally used for high-quality shoes and accessories.
WHAT IS MILLED LEATHER
Milling cowhides is a process in which only full grain hides a rotated in drum with heavy large rubber balls for a period of time to soften the leather.
WHAT IS DRUM DYED LEATHER
Drum dyeing is a process whereby full grain hides are completely immersed in the dye colour of choice and tumbled in a rotating drum (similar to a washing machine but much larger and made of oak). This process allows for complete saturation of colour through the hides’ including the pores and fibres.
WHAT IS TOP GRAIN LEATHER
We only use full grain leather and top grain leather. Top grain is almost the same as full-grain leather, but with the top sanded or buffed ever so slightly in order to allow the leather to change patina over a short period of time. Always changing from lighter to darker, you will enjoy the old vintage look within 6 months of use.
It’s very important that you are aware our leather will sometimes have scars, tick bites, variations in texture and other anomalies associated with quality hides. We are more than happy to send you a photo of your product before shipping.
