Paper to Product: Water Repellent Duck Canvas Jacket
Our water repellent army duck project jacket received many great reviews by all of you last year, so of course we brought it back. This time around we decided to feature it in Workshop in order to give you a chance to pre-order it at an exceptional price.
This jacket is quite unique because it is constructed with a ten ounce army duck, a military spec fabric originally designed for infantry field tents. Working with finer cotton yarns that are first twisted together before weaving, army canvas creates a much stronger, smoother and more water repellent fabric than traditional duck canvas. Upon finishing the fabric, the canvas is also impregnated with a natural wax based treatment to further increase it's water repellent tendencies.
Be sure to see our earlier journal entry
that shows how how beautifully this jacket wears in over time. It is truly one of those pieces that takes a little time and work to break it in, but once it's there it will be your absolute favorite coat in the closet.
