Classical feel with materials built on 100 years of history
Builford, a “luxury vintage brand,” offers products made with wax canvas material, a material that’s been made the same way for a hundred years.
The wax wear style material was created for hard working labor and rough environments like hunting, canoeing, and exploring. Completely waterproof, the durability of Builford products, combined with excellent design, set them apart from existing brands.
Original Wax Canvas Created the Same Way Since 1938
Builford uses only material made in the USA. Martexin Original Wax canvas has a long history and tradition since its inception in 1938.
In collaboration with some of the top world designers, we reworked the original wax wear to create a lighter and more flexible version.
The result is a unique brand mixing tradition and modernity with a sensual design.
Many brands using wax canvas materials focus entirely on their functional aspects, and as such give the impression they are only for laborers.
They are often recognized as old-fashioned, simple products. Wax canvas materials have never before been recognized as high fashion items in their 100 year history.
No brand made of wax canvas before Builford has managed to break into the fashion scene as a concept design and succeeded in the market.

MARTEXIN ORIGINAL WAX CANVAS
Martexin Original Wax is a cotton-based fabric infused with Martexin@ wax proprietary mixture, a unique formula that gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather, while the cotton fibers allow it to breathe. As the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina, which enhances the look of traditional outerwear, hats, and bags. The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time.
The Martexin@formula consists of agricultural and pharmaceutical grade waxes, and is completely non-hazardous.
Martexin Original Wax is an authentic American product that has stood the test of time and has outfitted American workers farmers, explores, fighters, and outdoorsmen for many generations.
Martexin Original Wax uses tightly woven fabrics and is treated with the same Martexin@ formula that has been used for generations.
The Martin family has been involved in the dyeing and finishing of textiles in the United States since 1838.
The method, application, and formula for the waxing process are tightly guarded family secrets, which have been passed down from father to son for seven generations.
In 1930, the Martexin@ formula was registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its identity from less effective imitators.
However, in 1950, the family decided to eliminate hazardous solvents commonly used in the application of wax finishes, and a unique patentable applicator was developed.
As patents are available for public review, the family decided not to seek a patent to further cloak the unique process in secrecy.
Martexin Original Wax uses Martexin@finishing exclusively, as they are technically superior to other waxed fabrics in performance, longevity, and resistance to dryness. Martexin Original Wax is environmentally friendly and is available domestically from the same company that has supplied the United States market for over 160 years.
The Builford Collection combines American Martexin Original Wax Canvas with its 100 years of history and a constant manufacturing philosophy and the creativity and expertise of designers from all over the world.
Martexin Original Wax Canvas, a renowned American brand, has been producing entirely original wax canvas since 1938.
The Builford Collection is the epitome of vintage luxury, a popular design concept currently. However, at Builford, we pride ourselves on the fact that all manufacturing processes such as sewing, waxing, leather processing, and assembly are performed by hands of expert craftsmen who have devoted their lives to their work. Many brands settle for a lower quality material and factory-produced products in order to offer lower costs to consumers. But at Builford, we are not interested in mass-produced items to sell for a high profit, preferring instead to work on the principal of high quality, well-crafted and well-designed products.
In placing our focus on value and craftsmanship, Builford is able to stand apart from its competitors.
Using 100% Martexin Original Wax Canvas and in collaboration with top designers, all manufacturing is done in Korea, a country famous for its fashion and workmanship. The production and distribution is exclusively managed through WKS, a joint-venture between Singapore and Korea.
