First manufactured over 30 years ago, this legendary fabric is continually evolving and growing tougher. Based on a long staple, hardwearing cotton, abrasion and rot resistant polyester matrix, different yarns and fibre blends are used to create each type of AzTec® fabric. The individual yarns are treated with a unique blend of waxes and resins, boosting water resistance and strengthening the fibres.
The weave and treatment makes AzTec® fabric that is not only strong and long-lasting, but also weatherproof, providing protection against unforgiving conditions. In a world of disposable technology, AzTec® fabric shows our commitment to sustainability through creating high quality, durable products that last.
Evolved to match the demanding New Zealand and Australian environments,
AZTEC® fabrics are at the core of Macpac’s formidable reputation for rugged, weatherproof packs.
AZTEC® fabrics are constructed from a unique blend of hard wearing, long staple cottons and abrasion, and rot-resistant polyester fibres. These fibres are plied together to create yarns that are tightly woven in a durable cloth. Different yarns are used to create each type of AZTEC® fabric which gives them unique properties.
The cloth is saturated in a blend of resins and waxes to create a weather-proof fabric. In wet conditions, the natural swelling of the cotton fibres fills airspaces to enhance the weather-proofness of AZTEC® fabric. In a world of disposable technology, AZTEC® canvas shows our commitment to sustainability through creating high quality, durable products.
AZTEC® is the original woven AZTEC® fabric, first developed in 1981.
