Here we have a multi-purpose calico; waterproof and biodegradable, for indoor and outdoor use.
The key with this type of calico is that the PVC lining on the back prevents water from affecting the material, making it waterproof.
Also the fact that it is an eco friendly material is important, because it slowly degrades over time.
This mid weight calico is made with cotton fibres in a plain-weave. It is tightly woven meaning it won't get easily damaged, and has no gaps for light to shine through, making it a suitable material to use for tents. gazebos, and wedding marquees. Calico can easily be incorporated into your chosen wedding colour scheme as this textile is a neutral soft cream colour which can blend in nicely to any colour scheme.
It drapes nicely over tables as a table covering, with the waterproof lining against the table (protecting the surface it is draped over) and the smooth surface on show.
It is also ideal as a base for arts and crafts due to its natural colour so it won't detract from the artwork that is created on it. It is commonly used as a canvas to design, paint and embroider onto, as it is a strong material and isn't very stretchy.
It is very effective to paint over this material with white acrylic paint to create a smooth single-coloured background to then paint your design ontop.
Creatives use this in theatre, visual merchandising and events.
For any coffin manufacturers and makers of caskets, this is an ideal eco coffin and casket lining, as it will protect what is inside as well as slowly degrading. So you can line your sustainably made coffins (such as wicker, bamboo, recycled card) with this fabric.
If you want to make an eco-friendly purchase choose this fabric!

Please Note: The visual appearance of fabric and colour may vary on screen between monitors due to the different screen colour settings;
The actual fabric appearances, textures, colours and quality of your fabric may not be as what you see on screen, the dyeing process between fabrics vary due to way the fabric has been woven, constructed or treated. Another factor is the type of yarn used (coarse or fine), these are key factors to consider when choosing the right fabric for your project.
We recommend you order actual fabric samples of the fabrics you are interested in. With samples you will be sure of the fabric shade, texture, quality and the fabric feel, also you will know if it is the right fabric for your application.
Important Point to remember about your colour; i.e. RED may not be the same as our RED, this is the same rule for any colour, you must request fabric samples, we do offer free samples, simply call us to order them.
