Toilet bag | Waxed canvas
Halley Stevensons - founded in 1864
The concept of waxed cotton was originally developed by seafarers in the early 15th century. Scottish North Sea herring fleets started treating flax canvas with fish oil and fat to waterproof their sails and keep them light and efficient.
In the years that followed, various treatments were applied to cotton to find the most effective. The combination of tightly woven cotton, impregnated with a paraffin coating, has proven to be very successful. These fabric constructions are still used today to achieve a longer-lasting, water-repellent effect. Halley Stevenson's has been producing at the Baltic Works in Dundee (Scotland) since 1864 and has pioneered the development of waxed cotton to date.
Handmade from Berlin
Our toiletry bag is produced with a lot of craftsmanship in a Berlin factory. At the end of this work is the quality control and detailed inspection of all seams and closures. Smallest mistakes lead to the culture bag being retired and corrected. Each toiletry bag therefore goes through an extensive development cycle, so that numerous carefully executed work steps, part by part, create an aesthetic and valuable unique piece.
