T. Anthony works with ethically sourced canvas that is uniquely treated to provide durability with style.
Our canvas is a 3 ply material specifically designed for use on luggage.
-The outer layer is expertly treated and dyed with non toxic solutions that ensure the canvas colors are fadeproof and will not crock.
-The center layer is a polymer composed of organic units joined by carbamate links.This strengthens the canvas and provides an additional level of water protection.
-The third layer is a backing to the canvas that is a specially treated polycotton
- The three layers are laminated and fused together using hot calender rollers.
- The result is an extremely durable material and it is stronger than ballistic nylon.
- The fabric is treated for water repellency and stain protection with a specially designed spray. The luggage is not fully "waterproof" however. There is NO luggage that is waterproof!Water can penetrate through zippers if the luggage is left in the rain for a long period of time.
At the time of “Around the World in 80 Days”, the suitcase as we know it today did not exist. “We’ll have no trunks, only a carpet bag, with two shirts and three pairs of stockings. We’ll buy our clothes on the way.” Said, Phileas Fogg.
