Scenic Cotton Canvas

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; This 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. Therefore, 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.
