Scenic Cotton Canvas
Scenic Cotton Canvas is a strong and durable material that works perfectly as a stage backdrop or cyclorama to add to the on stage scenery.
Cotton Canvas took over wooden panelling as a base material for painting in the 17th Century and is now one of the most popular fabrics used for paintings and art. Scenic Cotton Canvas is known for its plain weave, lightweight properties which make it great for applications that are needing more flexibility. As a smooth drapery, it resists rips and tears and is ideal if you’re looking for a textile that can become a scenic backdrop.
Whaley’s scenic cotton canvas fabrics come by the metre and is available in two different styles. Natural (loom state), is the colour of the cotton after it has been cleaned and processed in preparation for weaving resulting in it being referred to as cream/off white. White, is when the fabric has been bleached giving it a bright white colour which is popular within small theatres and town halls.
All of our scenic cotton canvas fabrics are non-durable flame retardant meaning that the fabric takes longer to ignite in the event of a fire. Please also note that care should be taken to ensure the fabric doesn’t get wet as shrinking can occur.
