YKRA'S natural cotton canvas is a wonderful material, but it needs to be protected from the elements. Using feedback from customers, YKRA has created a wax for waterproofing their products.
YKRA'S MAGIC BEESWAX is a natural impregnating wax for waterproofing canvas products. Handmade in Hungary from beeswax and paraffin according to traditional recipes.
Please note, that we do not recommend to use the beeswax for white or natural color canvas as the natural yellowish color of the beeswax might discolor the product.
How to impregnate your backpack:
1. Gently rub the wax on the outer canvas parts, making sure that it is evenly distributed
2. Use a hairdryer on a mild setting to warm up the wax. Letting the canvas soak it up!
3. Test to make sure you have applied enough wax, and the water runs off. If not, repeat steps 1 and 2!
