Product & Story

Waxed Canvas Tool Tote


A light yet durable tote bag makes it a snap to organize tools or sewing notions.

The Waxed Canvas Tool Tote is fitted with exterior pockets for convenient storage of smaller items, and its wide basket-like shape is both stylish and practical.

The waxed canvas fabric is woven in the Kansai region of Western Japan, which is then dyed, treated and sewn in a workshop in Osaka.
It is water repellent and extremely durable. The unique texture of the canvas gains luster and softness as you use it.

Our Canvas Pouches and Waxed Canvas Accessory Pouches are a perfect complement to the Waxed Canvas Tool Tote. Up to three can nest inside as removable compartments for effortless storage.

Handling Precautions

  • The paraffin finish gives the fabric a firmness and unique wrinkles on the surface.As you use it, it will become softer and more textured.
  • As a characteristic of paraffin finish, it smells like a candle at first. The smell will fade as you use it.
  • Ideally, to maintain the paraffin coating for a long time, it should be washed as little as possible.
    If you are concerned about dirt, wipe it off lightly with a wet cloth or rub it lightly with an eraser.
    To remove hand marks and other grease stains, scrub lightly with a soft brush moistened with a mild detergent diluted with water.
    If stains become noticeable with use, gently hand wash.
    You will lose the elasticity of paraffin coating, but you can enjoy the new softer texture.
  • Canvas is a cotton product, so the color may fade. Also please be aware that the color may transfer to clothes when wet.
  • Canvas is sensitive to moisture and can become moldy in hot and humid places.
    If you are not going to use the product for a long time, store it in a well-ventilated shady place to prevent mold and stains.
  • The leather tag is made of genuine leather so might stretch a little. Getting wet with water or sweat may cause the color to fade or stain.
  • The tassels may fade or discolor due to friction, moisture, or UV rays.
  • Keep out of reach of infants.
