About Canvas & Linen

  • Canvas is a blanket term for any material used to support a painting. The common types are 100% cotton, 100% Linen, Polyester Cotton & Polyester Linen.

  • Linen is made from flax fibre, strong & durable but more expensive. The threads that are woven to make linen are less prone to expansion & contraction due to moisture. Linen holds its stretched shape better than cotton.

  • Cotton canvas, when properly prepared is considered too flexible for very large paintings. Cotton can be stretched tighter than linen without straining the wood support.

I have not included stretched canvases as there is little chance they will arrive in good condition by courier.
