What is Cotton ?
The world’s most produced natural fibre, grown in many countries. A natural fibre that grows on the seed of the cotton plant. The fibre is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile.
Lightweight cotton is available in 3oz-5oz. Once the weight goes above 5oz the weave of the fabric gets coarser and the term canvas is used to describe the fabric. Canvas is available in 8oz-20oz.
Canvas is available in a range of weights and finishes.
Canvas can be supplied in various weaves such as, Duck, Twills, Drills, Casement, Voile, Poplin, Dobby and Sheeting, giving the fabric a unique finish. We can also provide various certifications such as Fairtrade, Organic GOTS, Organic OE100, Oekotex & BCI.
The natural colour of cotton is ecru, but it can be dyed to match any Pantone colour. Before the fabric is dyed it must be bleached to remove the natural ecru colour, this results in the fabric being an off-white colour (RFD).
