Cotton Duck Fabric properties:
■ "Duck" is the name given to the specific weave of the cotton fabric Carradice use in their bags. It's rugged and tough and can withstand plenty of knocks.
■ The fabric is pressure impregnated with Parrafin Wax to make it waterproof. This means ther's no coating that could get rubbed off. It also allows the fabric to breathe, so your belongings don't "sweat"
■ Carradice source their 100% waterproof Cotton Duck from Halley Stephensons - they've been making it for 150 years, but their factory is state of the art to ensure perfect quality.
■ When rain hits the fabric, the outer cotton filaments swell, effectively closing up any gaps in the weave and around the stitching. Combined with the barrier of wax, this very effectively stops the rain getting through. It's a system that has worked brilliantly for 200 years - Waxed cotton really is the original performance fabric
■ The fabric can easily be reproofed using reproofing wax (available separately)
■The fabric can be patched and repaired using the Carradice cotton duck repair kit (available seperately) With a little bit of care, your cotton duck bag could last you a lifetime
