The reason waxed canvas and leather pair so well together is that they both patina and tell a story as they age. These materials shouldn't need much care. Every few years canvas can be re-waxed with Otter Wax or Greenland wax to maintain its water resistance. The same schedule applies to the leather, using either neats foot oil or mink oil for a little extra rain protection.
