Waxed Canvas

Waxed canvas is a cotton-based fabric impregnated with a wax proprietary mixture, a unique formula that gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather, while cotton fibers allow it to breathe.As the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina, which enhances the look of traditional outerwear, hats, and bags. The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time.

Tarpaulin Vinyl

Abiding by the phthalates regulation, the tarpaulin vinyl is a safe, sturdy, bendy, and completely waterproof fabric. This material is used not only to line our heavy duty professional bags but is also used as an exterior fabric for our Vinyl Collection. Our vinyl comes in several eye-catching colors, is easy to clean, and can handle anything the weather can throw at you.


Our top quality Neoprene is 5 mm thick, offering excellent protection against shocks and spills for all types of electronic devices. The stretchability and low friction nature of this fabric is a real screen saver. MP Neoprene sleeves are available in a wide variety of colors.
