The Kingston Waxed Canvas Backpack
TOUGHENED WAXED COTTON & GENUINE LEATHER
An elevated every day carry backpack inspired by early explorers & vintage equipment. Rugged materials and a durable construction refined for a contemporary, functional commuter backpack. A simple but secure drawstring closure keeps items protected from the weather while maintaining easy access on the move.
BUILT TO LAST
Travel with confidence. A backpack built to take on the unpredictability of daily travel through town, city & country.
The Kingston is crafted with densely woven waxed cotton canvas. A timeless material renowned to be strong, durable & weather resistant.
FOR WORK & LIFE
Designed to simplify life on the move from work to the weekend, we made sure the Kingston is organised for every purpose.
Fitted with a 15″ protected laptop sleeve along with smart pockets and pouches for logical, quick access to safely secured essentials.
SHAPED FOR COMFORT
Big enough to fit a laptop, clothes and more, but compact enough to maintain comfort on the daily.
The Kingston is built to take a heavier load than our other packs, while still formed to fit all frames big & small, with ergonomically supported shoulder straps & back panel.
A traditionally formed vintage aesthetic to the exterior hides your tech gear inside a large top entry secured with drawstring closure.
A discreet yet impressively capable bag designed at its core to step seamlessly through all your travel companion needs.
WAXED COTTON CANVAS
The Kingston has been built with our signature cotton canvas, that has been densely woven and wax treated, along with genuine cowhide leather detailing. A process designed to enhance, strengthen and stylise the pack, but crucially bring the bag a resistance to moisture.
First appropriated by Scottish Mariners in the 1500s, waxed canvas has been a historically fundamental fabric for life in the outdoors, so it became a natural fit for our bags.

Each element is made with durable materials that are built to last with functionality at the core.
The Kingston has been constructed using our signature densely woven cotton canvas and genuine cowhide leather detailing, which have both been given a wax treatment. A process designed to enhance, strengthen and stylise the pack, but crucially bring the bag a resistance to moisture. First appropriated by Scottish Mariners in the 1500s, waxed canvas has been a historically fundamental fabric for life in the outdoors, so it became a natural fit for our bags.
We look for materials that are rugged and durable, but it’s also crucial that they age well. Over time, the waxed cotton will soften and conform to the way in which you use it and a patina will develop. The combination of exposure to the hot sun, driving rain, and the movements of your body, will lighten the color in the creases of the waxed fabric to create your own unique wear patterns. It truly is a thing of beauty.
The cowhide leather detailing is again treated with a wax coating, which enhances the fibres of the leather for a soft touch and an increased durability and moisture resistance. Like the waxed canvas, with use a natural patina will form onto the leather, unique to your piece and the journey in which you travel.
The beauty achieved when combining waxed treated canvas & leather naturally commands a need for a specialist workshop with the experience needed to shape something special. However marrying up the rugged durability of waxed cotton & leather, with the design for comfort and flexibility needed from an everyday carry option, complicates the production process profoundly.
So the task of finding a production partner grew increasingly hard for us. After some time trying to figure out the impossible, we were introduced to a boutique workshop located in mainland China who have the experience required to specialise in crafting high quality bags using these difficult materials, who are able to produce unusually small production runs to support our early days business, and importantly have a full understanding of the value created from maintaining excellent conditions of work. As soon as the mail arrived delivering our first test sample we knew we made the best decision. In fact, with our first sample we had so much confidence in what we had, that later that day we officially launched Oldfield onto the web, and have since never looked back.
