For the Bushcrafter, cabin owner, outdoorsman, or nature lover that has it all, we have created the ultimate functional vintage artwork ground cloth. Hang it and use it as art, or better yet, use it for its purpose. This ground cloth is made from 14.1 oz oak waxed canvas, but also features a 100% cotton lining with what we feel is the perfect scene for the bushcraft community. And, because it is 100% cotton, it can easy be waxed to have the same durability and water resistance as the waxed canvas it is attached to. The cotton lining does not come waxed, but we'd be more than happy to share how to do it, if you want to.
This oak color large size (23" W x 42" L) waxed canvas ground cloth is the perfect piece of kit for your bushcraft adventures. It is made of 10.1 oz waxed canvas and highly water resistant. It stands up well against wet and dirty ground. One side is lined with a 100% cotton happy camper scene for a pop of old world style. This ground cloth was designed to go on the ground so you can rest your backpack and have a place to kneel or sit that is dry. It comes in a variety of colors and features four eyelets for hanging, creating a log hauler, or even making a bushcraft chair. It is also has hundreds of other uses. We use it for:
Kneeling on the ground while getting the fire started Food prep Protection for your blanket roll Rain cover And many more uses
Martexin Original Wax uses an exclusive Martexin® finish, which makes it technically superior to other waxed cotton fabrics in performance, longevity, and dryness of hand. Martexin Original Wax is an environmentally friendly blend of food and pharmaceutical grade waxes, and is completely non-hazardous. This unique formula gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather and as the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina. The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time.
Martexin Original Wax is a highly specialized textile that precludes normal cleaning. Just as you wouldn't wash a leather product such as shoes, gloves, or jackets, you won?t be able to wash or dry clean your Martexin Original Wax. Wax fabrics have been successfully used for many years without washing. A periodic cleaning with a hose, damp cloth is all that is needed. Bare areas can be refinished with our Martexin Original Wax refinishing compound which can help restore the wax finish.
Each ground cloth is designed, created, and assembled in our small shop in colorful Colorado, USA. Every item is handcrafted and no two are exactly alike but all are made with great care and craftsmanship to last you a lifetime. Slight imperfections are part of the charm. This is a great item that will be passed down for generations.
