This 1953 Army Tent Fabric came from a giant mess tent. It was rescued from a landfill by a neighbor and brought to the Truce studio for repurposing. The tag says it was manufactured in 1953 in upstate New York, making it the oldest material in our inventory. This is truly an opportunity to own a piece of history.
The fabric itself is a heavy-duty cotton, treated many times with a weather-resistant wax treatment. It repels water and moisture the old-fashioned way, without chemical treatments or laminations. This fabric has a lot of character and makes for a beautiful bag - it takes some extra cleaning steps on our part to get it ready for our process, but it's worth it
