An often-used waxed canvas item develops a patina, a weathering and a shine that speaks of experience. It’s not something that should want to be washed off or removed; it’s earned character. A trusted bag should have some spots and stains to prove it’s been somewhere and back again.
Everything we make at Frost River is held to the standard of a woods worthy Canoe Pack. We use the same materials, utilize the same know-how to make everything in the Frost River line right from our shop on West Superior Street in Duluth, Minnesota. You don’t need to portage a big canoe pack everyday to appreciate enduring quality. A briefcase, tote, purse, or backpack of the same character can carry a similar intent and feeling.
If you have something we’ve made then you likely understand and we thank you for your support. If you have yet to experience the satisfaction of carrying an item handmade from waxed canvas we invite you to give us a chance, we’d love to make something for you.
Thanks for reading. Stop by and see us sometime, we’d be happy to give you a tour of the shop.
Cheers from Frost River!
