Our loomstate canvas is made from a plain cotton weave and has a medium weight of 12 oz per square meter. Loomstate is the term used when a fabric literally ready to use straight from the loom unprimed in its natural state with no treatments or additions.
Canvas fabric is well known for its strength and durability and since its mass production in the early 20th century its popularity has grown along with its varied and practical uses. Adaptable to weather conditions, breathable and with the ability to be forcibly stretched, loomstate canvas was originally used for artist’s canvas, upholstery, tents, coverings, sails and awnings. The modern water repellent equivalent is now the preferred choice for outdoor work but natural loomstate is still popular for many other uses.
Whether you go for loomstate or treated is personal preference. The loomstate canvas will have slightly more texture with slight pulling of the fibres and un- broken husks within the weave giving the fabric a peppered effect. This natural look works perfectly when creating traditional or neutral interior and exterior designs for the home, or country style arts and crafts.

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.
