What Is Canvas?
Traditionally manufactured from hemp, for its tough fibres, Canvas is now primarily produced from either linen or cotton. Linen Canvas is a premium alternative to Cotton Canvas, and has finer strands, producing a highly intricate weave, with a regular pattern. Cotton Duck Canvas is most commonly used for painting with oil colour.

How do I choose a Canvas?
Canvas is graded according to weight and tightness of weave. Ranging from 1 to 12, a low number indicates a coarse grain, whereas the finest grains are represented by the highest numbers. Often, canvas is simply graded as “Coarse”, “Medium” and “Fine”.
