Canvas Duffle Bags Most Frequently Asked Questions


A travel bag is a life companion and a fashion accessory. To buy a pack that suits you, you need to think about its use and your current lifestyle. This will guide you to a bag with the right volume, wether you need a regular bag or a high capacity one..

Next, examine the materials and build quality of the weekend bag. If you travel a lot and tend to abuse your bag, don't skimp on quality and opt for a sturdy and if possible waterproof bag. We offer travel bags made of canvas (sometimes waxed) and full grain leather because these materials are naturally resistant.

You can also choose your weekender bag according to your style and your morphology to have a bag that fits your body to the maximum.

Finally, don't hesitate to take a look at the essential functions of the bag such as the storage spaces, the presence of dedicated compartments for your technology as quilted sleeve are a must now, a padded, adjustable and removable strap or protective rivets. Some holdall offers nice add-ons such as shoes compartment, quick access anti-theft pocket etc...


At Eiken, we offer two kind of five stars canvas fabric, classic coton canvas and waxed coton canvas. The only difference between the two is that one has been waxed, giving it water repellent properties. As a result, an unwaxed canvas travel bag cannot be considered completely water-resistant even though the fine mesh and a polyester lining protect its contents.

In contrast, a waxed canvas weekend bag is water resistant and can be worn in the rain. Beware, however, that they are not completely waterproof in the original sense of the word, so don't throw yourself into the water or the sea with them.


Waxing a bag is very simple. All you need is a block of wax (if possible beeswax - or failing that paraffin) and a hair dryer. If the wax is in the form of a block, you can use a hair dryer to heat the end of the block to melt the wax and then rub the block gently on the canvas to impregnate it with wax.

If the wax is in pellet form, melt it in a bowl and apply it to the canvas with a fine brush.

Once the entire canvas is waxed, let the wax air dry overnight.

We recommend re-waxing a bag every 4-6 months for optimum protection.


You can wash it, but if it is also made of leather, you must be very careful not to put it in the washing machine or soak it in water, as this could seriously damage the leather.

You can simply use clear water with a mild soap and apply it to the fabric with a cloth, taking care not to touch the leather parts. You can repeat this several times before rinsing with clean water and another cloth. Then let the fabric dry in the fresh air.

As our fabrics are dyed, we do not recommend the use of chemicals that could discolour the fabric.


Duffle bags are ideal for the gym because they are spacious, functional and versatile. They can easily hold your gym gear, a change of clothes, and your hygiene kit. Since they don't have a rigid frame, they are compact and can often fit in lockers.

Beware though, a canvas weekend bag is not as easy to wash as a plastic gym bag, which may be its only flaw.


Weekender bags are very frequently used bags by frequent travelers and businessmen because they are practical, light and spacious. Compact and functional, you can easily use all the space available.

If it's not too big, it can be taken as a carry-on, saving you time when boarding and disembarking. However, be sure to check the conditions of each company before booking your flight.


Carrying a duffle bag is easy and doesn't require much preparation. You have 3 ways to carry it (sometimes 4 if the travel bag offers convertible straps).

You can carry it by hand for a casual look, thanks to the top handles. This is the ideal carrying method if you don't want to be too crowded, in hot weather, or if your bag doesn't hold too much stuff.

You can wear it on your shoulder or around your neck using the shoulder strap. This allows you to keep your hands free and move around more easily.

Finally, if the bag is convertible, it sometimes offers two shoulder straps so you can carry it like a backpack.
