Dry-waxed canvas is a special material, if looked after well, it will last a very long time and only gets better with age. Here’s our guide to looking after your BearMade bag.
- Hand wash only. Our bags don’t like washing machines.
- If it gets dirty, let it dry and then brush off the dirt.
- Re-proof the bag once every couple of years to maintain water repellency.
Bag specific rules:
We use two different materials for our bags. A dry-waxed canvas and another even drier-waxed canvas.
Our even drier-waxed canvas bags are rust, khaki or dark blue and don’t have any waxy feel to them. These can only be treated with a spray.
Both are super easy to do and are demonstrated in the videos below.
With a wax bar.
You can buy wax bars from us here.
With reproofing spray.
We don't sell reproofing spray at the moment but we recommend you use this one from Nikwax.
