Stable, durable, strong, yet supple!

Linen, while more expensive than cotton, is the traditional choice for professional artists. Linen canvas is the most durable fabric to put paint on and, due to its strength, is ideal for large paintings. Its warp and weft threads are equal in weight, making them less susceptible to expanding or contracting problems created by moisture. Linen is very receptive to sizing and priming applications and it retains its natural oils which preserve the fibres’ flexibility and keeps the canvas from becoming brittle. Linen canvas has a more “natural” weaved finish than cotton and is available in a variety of weights and textures, providing a smooth or rough finish. Because of its strength, linen canvas holds up to a heavy painting hand and does not become slack as easily as cotton canvas.
