Rugged yet refined, the Waxed Canvas Backpack is an ideal companion for work commutes, day trips, and weekend outings. Designed with versatility in mind, the Backpack works well (and looks good) in the city, in the mountains, and everywhere in between. Tapered shape is streamlined to efficiently carry your daily essentials, while multiple storage pockets make it easy to stay organized on the go. Meticulously crafted from waxed canvas, vegetable tanned leather, and solid brass hardware, every pack is carefully cut, sewn, and assembled by their small team in their Denver, CO workshop. With its compact design, versatile function, and refined details, you'll be proud to carry the Waxed Canvas Backpack for years to come.
With its high quality, natural materials, your bag should last a long time if used wisely and maintained carefully. Waxed canvas looks better with age and acquires a beautiful patina the more you use it. For minor stains and dirt, simply spot clean with a damp rag. For major stains or spills, clean your bag by submerging it (leather and all) in a tub of warm water. Gently scrub the stained area, and then let dry completely in a well-ventilated area. DO NOT USE SOAP on waxed canvas—it may damage the fabric's protective waxed coating.
The Waxed Canvas Backpack was designed using Winter Session’s signature 'refined utilitarian' design philosophy: practical features and rugged materials are combined with refined details to create a product that is both stylish and functional. In order to satisfy their obsession with quality, they make every bag from start to finish in their Denver, CO workshop using the best natural materials they can find. Waxed canvas is one of their favorite materials because it is not only weather-resistant, but it also acquires a beautiful patina over time, telling a unique and tactile story of your adventures. To complement the canvas, natural leather straps and details are individually cut, hand finished, and carefully assembled to add a sophisticated and timeless look and feel.
