Waxed canvas is a durable, natural and time tested fabric. We source ours from a 7th generation family owned and operated business and draw on their years of experience and knowledge to produce a bag that will hold up to our own high standards. Each and every waxed canvas bag takes on its own unique character, no two are alike. The distressed quality of the fabric comes from working the material as we build each bag. We produce each bag in small sets to ensure the highest level of craftsmanship. We’ve applied our unique attention, focus and understanding of waxed canvas to create finely crafted, durable, daily use canvas bags.


Every Moop® bag is handmade in our Pittsburgh studio. Please allow 2-5 business days for your item to be prepared for shipment.

Frequently asked questions about moop

Waxed canvas bags cannot be machine washed or dryed (really, it's not a good idea to machine wash any bag). The best option is to hose off with cold water and hang dry.
