Otter Wax is an all-natural heavy duty fabric wax made from the highest quality beeswax and a proprietary blend of plant-based waxes and oils.
Moop bags are designed for daily wear and tear but, like any natural fiber fabric, cotton will take on stains if you encounter the unexpected coffee spill, or wine stain or any of the other myriad of things that can happen during life's daily adventures. We use Otter Wax as a re-waxing agent on our Moop bags when stains like this happen. We start with a wash using Otter Wax canvas cleaner, let it dry, then refinish with this fabric wax.
Directions: Rubbing the bar of wax in circular motions will create the right amount of heat to soften the wax and spread evenly into the top layer of fabric. You can also use a hair dryer if you want added heat. This is intended as a re-waxing agent for our cotton waxed canvas • thoroughly clean and dry your bag before applying the wax • rub into fabric to create friction • smooth out with your fingers to create a clean finish • allow item to cure in a warm, dry place for at least 24 hours • reapply as often as necessary.
Or, we offer a kit of all the tools to clean and re-wax your bag here.

2. About our fabrics
Waxed Canvas100% cotton canvas has wax integrated into the fibers during the weaving process and finished with a top coat of wax for added water resistance. Waxed canvas has a distressed look that will age and change over time. We source ours from a 7th generation family owned and operated manufacturer, an industry leader in coated fabrics. Waxed canvas was originally developed in the late 1800's for long shore fishermen who needed to stay warm and dry. We like that legacy.
Water resistance: High
Water Resistant Canvas100% cotton canvas. Much like waxed canvas, a water resistant coating is integrated into the fibers during the weaving process but, there is no top coat wax finish. This results in a surface that is only slightly distressed and will look the same, day in and day out. It has a water resistant coating which makes it extremely durable and able to withstand the elements, keeping the contents of your bag dry.
Water resistance: High
100% cotton canvas with a corded weave. Corded canvas is similar to corduroy only it has no pile, does not pill and breaks in like your favorite denim. Corded canvas has not been treated with any water resistant coatings.
Water Resistance: low
Brushed Canvas100% cotton canvas with a slightly brushed surface. Soft to the touch. Our brushed canvas has not been treated with any water resistant coatings.
Water resistance: low
Cordura®Cordura® is a high performance, highly water resistant fabric. It is light weight, extremely durable and will not absorb water. We use Cordura® brand nylon which is all made in the USA.
Water Resistance: High
Our leather comes from a handmade shoe manufacturer in upstate New York. We have partnered with them to upcycle their scraps when we can. The leather detailing may have marks and scars due to this process but, it will never lose structural integrity. Leather hides are sourced from Horween, the famous Chicago tannery founded in 1905.
Our full leather bags are made from leather we custom designed, from color to finish with a small family owned and operated tannery based in Los Angeles, CA. We had the aging process in mind with this leather. It will break in and age for each person in a slightly different way, carrying the marks of your daily life as it builds character.
