I’m not going to say that this Field Notes cover is bullet-proof, I’ll just say that I’d hate to be the
bullet that runs into this cover.
Sized to hold one Field Notes notebook or two, this cover will protect you notebook with a
fierceness seldom seen from any part of the cotton plant. That’s because the cotton plant has
teamed up with bees, or more specifically, the bees’ wax. This combination creates a naturally
rugged, water resistant, and sturdy fabric that ages with a similar look to leather.
This is made from an 18oz. tightly woven cotton canvas and then hand-waxed in Texas, using
beeswax sourced from local bees, then sun-baked to allow the wax to absorb in to the fabric.
Your Field Notes cover should have a subtle honey scent.
This Field Notes cover will show scratches and become distressed, but it will only get better
looking over time, and the pattern that emerges will be unique to your cover.
If you want a more “used” or “lived-in” look for your cover, you can speed the process by
scrunching or squeezing it, then flattening it back out.
If you want a less “used” or “lived-in” look for your cover, you can use heat to “reset” the pattern
back to original. Use a hair dryer to heat the fabric until the color looks even again. A heat gun
works faster, and open flame works too but isn’t recommended. If you use a clothes iron to
flatten and reset, place some paper between the canvas and iron.
Caring for your Field Notes cover:
– Clean with a damp cloth
– Do not use soap
– Do not machine wash
– Do not dry clean
– Do not taunt
