Waxed Canvas Tote
Waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability. The Waxed Canvas Tote from Peg and Awl boasts the permanence of this wonder-material while also incorporating vintage fabric lined-pockets, reclaimed leather straps and closures (from antique WWII gun slings) brass rivets and Sam Browne buttons. This is the holy grail in unisex carryall totes, practical and perfect in every way. This tote was built to endure. Load it up, bring it everywhere.
