  • Canvas

    Canvas is a plain weave fabric formed from cottonlinenjute, cotton, hemp, or – today, when canvas has become a generic term for heavy, tightly-woven fabric - polyester. Canvas is heavy and dense and has applications in making tents, sails, tarpaulins, awnings, upholstery, umbrellas, shoe uppers, embossed wall coverings that form a substratum for paint or gilding, and totes. Additionally, canvas serves as a support for oil painting, and is the name for the mesh fabric on which embroidery and needlepoint are done. A “canvas” paper for inkjet printing has even been developed.
