Waxed Canvas Tote in Rook

$240.00 - $320.00



We are so excited to reveal our two new colours Radish and Rook! Radish is a luscious dusty pink. It illuminates in the sun, looking rather radish-like with its ombré effect. Rook, like the crow it is named for, is an intense dark indigo, which varies in light – brightening, purpling and blueing. It is the nature of the waxed canvas to seemingly transform in different light, and these two colours are no exception.

The Waxed Canvas Tote boasts the permanence of waxed canvas while also incorporating vintage fabric lined pockets, reclaimed leather straps and closures from antique WWII gun slings, and brass rivets and studs. 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.

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.
