When we think of a typical chef, the white hat comes into mind. This tradition, along with many others in the kitchen, dates back over 2,000 years. According to legend, as early as 7 A.D., chefs in Assyria wore hats in the shape of crowns to stand apart from the kitchen help. It wasn't until the early 19th Century that the French started primarily using white colors due to its connection to cleanliness and hygiene. Functionality aside, the pleats were symbolic of the number of recipes the chef knew, with more pleats meaning a higher level of experience.
Waxed canvas is a woven fabric, sturdy and resilient by nature. The word canvas derives from the Latin word "Cannabis", or "Hemp", and while modern day canvas is made with linen, cotton or synthetic materials, hemp was originally used as the primary material. Over 5000 years ago, China was producing cloth made of hemp fiber, a material they discovered to be water resistant and very durable. Throughout Europe, this material was quickly adopted for the making of sails of ships, but it wasn't until 1,200 BC that the Greeks and Phoenicians were the first to begin trading by ship. Nowadays, with the correct synthetic materials used, an excellent water resistant canvas fabric can be created, and it has become a key player in the architectural, industrial and marine fields.
Our canvas comes from the highly respected supplier Lonas Segovia, the oldest canvas maker in Guatemala. The seams are sewn using bonded nylon thread with a burned and melted finish offering no loose ends during your travel.
