This product is made from waxed cotton canvas. It’s heavy duty canvas but still needs to you treat it like cotton - not kevlar. To clean, brush off heavy dirt and then wash with warm water. Use mild detergent for a more thorough clean. RE-WAX with Jack Stillman’s Fabric Wax to maintain water-resistance and abrasion resistance.


This very traditional bag can best be described using one word - useful. The drawstring design means it’s quick and simple to access and can be worn across the shoulder like a rucksack when needed. Best uses are as a shopping bag, day bag, equipment sack picnic and beach bag and festival bag.

The Newport Sack is made from 8oz waxed cotton canvas so it’s water resistant. Throughout it’s long expected life it can be re-waxed using our own Granddad Jack’s Fabric Wax to keep it protected. The internal liner adds another layer of strength and insulation. The drawstring can also be adjusted to the wearer.
