Waxed Cotton

Old Fashioned Standards (OFS) is a small local business based on the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations which is now known as "Vancouver, Canada." Run and operated by women, OFS specializes in tailor made custom designs, natural fibres, and vegan water resistant materials such as oilcloth and waxed cotton.

Waxed cotton is a contemporary rendition of the traditional oilcloth with a slightly dryer finish. Alike the traditional oilcloth, waxed cotton also has a double warp and a double weft making it a tightly woven and dense material. Add the paraffin based wax mixture on both sides and you get a 100% saturated fabric that is entirely vegan, water, and weather proof.
