Why Oilcloth?

Oilcloth was developed at the turn of the century by sailors who found by coating ship sails with linseed oil and whale oil made an incredibly protective wet weather fabric. When developing Huntsmith Collection we saw how this fabric was used by our families throughout generations. Why change something that isn't broken? The 8oz 100% cotton Oilcloth has been tested for wear and water resistance, obtaining the highest quality grading in the industry.


Wax cloth is not the same as Oilcloth

Wax cloth is permeated with wax which will freeze below 32 degrees and open to the cotton, which allows the water to penetrate. Oilcloth is impermeated with lanolin and mineral oils, and won't freeze. Wax cloth has a distinctive smell and is noisy. Oilcloth is very supple and has very little smell.

and Canvas...

Canvas is breathable and strong. Made from 100% natural cotton, never allowing moisture to be trapped inside like plastics. When Canvas gets wet, set it in the sun and it will be dry in minutes. In fact, I still have a bag that was given to my brother, by my father 50 years ago.
