Yeah, that was my thinking too.   With a non-hardening oil, wouldn't you be worried about leaching into the fabric?
 I'm not an expert, but I wouldn't think that olive oil would be the ideal choice. Something more from the woodworking world could be better. Might be worth looking into a sweet almond or lemon oil, or even a hardening oil, like linseed or hempseed. Something to think about anyway...

Construction is excellent as always. N.B: For those with a particular project in mind, always be sure to ask directly about fabrics, as the luxire people are highly knowledgable and stock fabrics that aren't listed on the site. Tasneem was great about helping me choose among 7 or 8 black shirtings that weren't listed.
