We source only the finest materials for our bags. Duckworthy products are built to last, which is why we use rugged "pull-up" leather and 16 oz. duck canvas in all of our bags. Our products are made to be put to the test and endure the elements for performance you can trust. Read more about the materials that go into every Duckworthy product.
16 oz. Duck Canvas
Our canvas is what makes our products Duckworthy. 16 oz. duck canvas is waxed on both sides of the fabric to ensure wax is thoroughly distributed within the cotton fibers. This additional waxing ensures water beads up and rolls right off - like water off a duck.
Waxing also creates the opportunity for the canvas to show signs of creasing, scratching, and wear - furthering the individual character and unique story your bag will tell over time. We offer our canvas in five colors: Slate Gray, Forest Green, Navy Blue, Maroon, & Khaki Brown.
Prior to pattern cutting, full grain cow hide leather is inspected for scars and irregularities. Any large imperfections are chalked to ensure pattern cutting does not incorporate them. We use what is called "pull-up" leather in our products. Pull-up leather (sometimes called saddle leather or vintage leather) contains a waxed finish that quickly takes on a vintage patina from use. This patina is a desired effect of pull-up leather and provides unique "worn-in" character over time.
