Our top quality art canvas is made from natural cotton duck; this type of canvas boasts a firmer structure and a smother finish than average canvas so this makes it ideal for its most popular use as the go –to fabric for artists and painters. The name “cotton duck” fabric has actually has nothing to do with the feathered variety , it’s derived from the Dutch word “doek” which has a few similar meanings including, cloth, canvas and curtain, so over time the term canvas duck became the official name for the material used for artists canvas.
Our cotton duck canvas is constructed using a suzler machine, using a hopsack and twill weave to achieve the densely woven structure, giving the fabric a medium to heavy 12 oz per square meter weight. This artist’s canvas can be used normally or stretched over a stretch frame from small pieces to much larger scale work. Its dense weave is perfect for applying paint whilst the natural loom state of the fabric means it’s also breathable, so air and moisture can move through, rather than settling in the 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.
