Waxed Canvas Backpacks For Everyday

Waxed canvas backpacks are certainly trendy right now, as people are flocking to its vintage appeal. There’s just something irresistible about the texture of the fabric and the kind of rugged feel that works for both men and women. But because it’s a trend, there are a lot of brands out there. So how do you choose?

If you search waxed canvas backpacks, you’ll find some brands refer to “Martexin” waxed canvas, which is the original American wax formula dating back to the 1930s, mostly used by factory and industrial workers. At Builford, we use the original, trademarked Martexin formula that’s been handed down from generation to generation. Over the years, the formula has been perfected and extensively researched. The Martexin family keeps the formula a well-guarded secret, even refusing to patent it as that would require the recipe entering the public arena, but have granted Builford a special license to use it.

As one of the few brands using the original formula, we ensure that our waxed canvas backpacks truly have the quality that we pride ourselves on representing.

What else sets Builford apart from the crowd?

Many waxed canvas backpacks brands tout the outdoors advantages of their packs, such as their waterproofness, their durability, and etc. Builford can claim all of these advantages as well, but they are also fashion bags, student bags, school bags, and much more. They are not out of place in everyday use. They are perfectly functional as outdoor packs, and yet manage not to look like a designated “outdoor pack.”

I’ll give you an example. Today, I left my house around 9am, and won’t be home until late tonight. Along the way, I have a few meetings and a dance class, and rounding it off by going to see a performance. That means I need my laptop, my notebooks, my dance clothes, another change of clothes, and makeup.

I can easily store everything in my Builford backpack, although it’s a heavy load, the padded straps ease the burden enormously. There are pockets for everything, including makeup and other cosmetics, so everything has its own place and stays well-organized. There’s a chance of rain this afternoon and I didn’t bring an umbrella, but because it’s a waxed canvas backpack, it’s waterproof, so I don’t have to worry about my things getting wet or damaged.

And besides all that, it’s just plain fashionable, and goes well with my style.

How could anyone ask for more?
