Discover The Different Properties Of Canvas Fabric

Canvas is one of the many fabrics that is available to crafters these days. It is a heavy-duty fabric that has been around for a very long time. During the course of history, canvas fabric has been used to make camping tents, handbags, and even sails for boats.

There are various types of canvas fabrics crafters should be familiar with. As they can be made with different materials, they can have various properties too. If you wish to get more familiar with canvas fabric, be sure to read on.

What Are The Properties Of Cotton Canvas Fabric?

Cotton canvas fabric is one of the most common types you will encounter. Most cotton canvas fabrics have medium strength, which means it provides good durability for most projects. It is also a canvas type that reacts rather well to moisture, as it becomes stronger when it is wet.

You can find cotton canvas fabrics in treated and untreated versions. The untreated cotton canvas is quite absorbent, this means that the size of the fabric fibres increases when they encounter water. On the flipside, cotton canvas does have a reputation to dry slowly. Because of this, the material is also more susceptible to problems such as mould and mildew.

Some manufacturers can give cotton fabric a special treatment containing various chemicals. While this is not the most environmentally friendly approach, it does make the canvas waterproof. The chemicals can also make canvas less susceptible to catching fire.

What Are The Properties Of Linen Canvas Fabric?

Cotton is not the only natural fabric fibre that is used for canvas fabrics. Linen is another fibre that can be turned into canvas. There are benefits to choosing linen over cotton where durability is concerned, as most linen canvas fabrics are twice as strong as cotton canvas.

Despite its durability, linen does have disadvantages too. When the material is being stretched, it will not go back to its original size. Linen also has a tendency for wrinkling but has the same absorbent qualities as cotton.

What Are The Properties Of Hemp Canvas Fabric?

Hemp used to be popular for canvas fabrics, but this material is used less frequently compared to cotton and linen. Despite its lack of popularity, hemp does have a lot of benefits for canvas, this includes a natural resistance to mould and mildew. It also has a natural resistance against insects, which made the material quite attractive for the construction of tents and rope in the past.

What Are The Properties Of Synthetic Canvas Fabric?

In addition to cotton, linen and hemp, synthetic fibres can be used to make canvas too. Canvas may consist solely out of synthetic fibres, but it can also be blended with natural fibres such as cotton and linen.

A combination of natural and synthetic fibres is often used to eliminate some of the negative properties of other materials. For example, cotton is prone to mould and mildew. By mixing cotton with a synthetic fibre, it can provide more resistance against mildew and mould.

There are a bunch of synthetic fibres that can be blended with natural fibres in the creation of fabrics, this includes polyester and nylon. So, if you are looking for particular properties, be sure to check which of these synthetic fibres is included in your canvas fabric.

Is Canvas Made With Different Weaves?

You can find various canvas variants on the market today and this has to do with the type of weave that is used for the fabric. The plain weave is the most common and is characterised by a single yarn that runs in a vertical direction on the warp. Then, another horizontal yarn is inserted to finish the weave. Plain weaves creates fabrics such as muslin, which can be used in tailoring and dressmaking.

Canvas can also be found in a so-called basket weave. The basket weave is done with multiple yarns in the same direction, creating a stronger material, but also a material with a unique texture. A common canvas that uses the so-called basket weave is the ballistic nylon fabric. Because of its strength and durability, this fabric finds many applications in upholstery projects.

Textile Spotlight: Waxed Canvas Fabric

Waxed canvas fabric is a waterproof, eco-friendly fabric that manages to avoid the“sporty” aesthetic that most performance fabrics tend to possess.

This fabric is exactly what it sounds like: canvas that has been treated with wax, the purpose of which is to create a water-resistant textile.

Traditionally used for sails on ships,  waxed canvas is now a sought-after material, especially for the creation of bags and coats.

Its look has an understated loveliness, and a hint of vintage charm. The canvas retains its softness and flexibility despite having been treated, aging beautifully in a similar vein to leather.

Additionally, it is a more eco-friendly alternative to many other performance fabrics, as it is made completely from natural materials.

If you’re interested in designing your own textiles for your line, waxed canvas can be made in your studio (albeit, for best results you would need a separate dryer specifically for producing the fabric, as it will leave wax residue.) Wax can be rubbed or brushed on in an even coat, then melted into the fibers with a heat gun, or by throwing it in the dryer for a more even finish.

For those who would prefer to source from a supplier, there are definitely solid options:

Fairfield Textile

Fairfield stocks  commercial and government grade Martexin lines from the Martin Dyeing and Finishing Co. including “original wax” and “heavy water repellent.” What is really cool about this supplier is that while they have a range of lovely neutral tones available, the fabrics can be colored and finished to your specifications.

British Millerain Co.

This supplier specializes in waxed fabrics for apparel and accessories, the applications including clothing, shoes, hats and luggage. The “traditional wax” line includes a variety of wax types and finishes to choose from (including soywax!) Wash-safe fabrics are also available- they can be put into the washing machine without harming it or leaving any kind of residue. Another interesting option, particularly for outerwear, is their unique assortment of waxed wools.

Spotlight: My Favorite Fabric for Book Cloth

Hello there and welcome back! This is the second installment in my “spotlight” series, where I’ll be focusing on an item (tool, equipment, supply or material) that I use and LOVE in my bindery. This week’s ride-or-die item is all about an obsession of mine: fabric for book cloth.

Throughout the years, I’ve tried many different types of fabric to use for bookcloth, but I always come back to Rifle Paper Co. Here are four very good reasons I prefer this particular brand over swaths of others on the market today:

Boss Babe at the Helm

Rifle Paper Co. was started by Anna Bond back in 2009. She wanted to focus on playful, vintage designs – a combination that resonated instantly with her audience. Over the years, she and her husband have grown the company while having three children – proof that women really can “do it all.” Today, their company is valued at more than $21 million.

Anna Bond, Founder and co-owner of Rifle Paper Co.

Cottons, Linens and Rayon…oh my

Most of the company’s fabrics are available in cotton (linen, canvas) and sometimes Rayon. I personally prefer cotton and linens due to their strength and versatility, so this is great for me. I also love how they feel and take to the backing I use (a Japanese rice paper called Unryu).

Vibrant Design

As the creative force behind Rifle Paper Co, Anna Bond participates as illustrator & designer, developing jaw-dropping (primarily vintage floral) illustrations for stationery, fabric, planners, calendars, desk accessories…you name it. I’m particularly drawn to her use of deep, vibrant colors, high contrast and – on the opposite end – coordinating neutrals and pastels. I know it’s going to sound a little hippie of me, but I feel like each pattern tells a story. Might be just me, though.

Consistency

What I love most about this company (apart from their gorgeous designs) is the consistency in quality I’ve experienced over the years. In short – I know what I’m buying when I buy it. There’s never a question of whether or not a specific color or pattern will feel or function differently (this has been the case with other brands I’ve tried). This peace of mind is priceless.

There is also consistency in their releases, which disappear after each season. If you like a pattern, scoop it up! Otherwise, you risk paying 2-3x more on Etsy or eBay.

Customers ❤️ Quality

I admit, in the beginning it was difficult to splurge on the material. I worried that my decision to convert this fabric to book cloth might be foolish, but my customers had the final word. They’ve told me time and again how happy they are that I’ve chosen such beautiful, quality fabrics for my books. To be fair, I don’t buy every single pattern released. Instead, I focus on patterns that resonate with me personally. These are the ones you’ll find in my small bindery, and I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.

I created this hardcover travel journal using “Strawberry Fields” fabric in “blush” tint. Click on the image to view the book.

Resources

It’s possible to buy RiflePaperCo fabric in many different places, but I do prefer to buy from their online store whenever possible.

Older designs that are no longer available can be purchased on Etsy from various sellers who cater to the sewing and quilting communities.

Industry Spotlight – Kokka Fabric Japan

Kokka Fabric is a lifestyle brand one of the most iconic Japanese textile companies in the industry. Japanese import fabrics used to be difficult to find and had a sort of cult following. Their fabric is getting more accessible and they have some fabulous substrates to sew with to get outside of the quilt cotton box. Here is a glimpse of what they have to offer and a peek at their awesome and unique aesthetic (it goes way beyond Hello Kitty, but yes, they have that too!).

Double Gauze

Double gauze is two fine layers of lightweight cotton, woven on a loom at the same time (double weave), with individual threads that join together at intervals to form a two ply cloth. The finished fabric is lightweight and drapey, but still substantial enough to incorporate into quilts, garments and fashion accessories. Lauren has a great post on sewing with double gauze here.

Nani Iro is a Japanese label for Kokka designed by Naomi Ito. Her prints have a beautiful watercolor quality that look like pieces of artwork that don’t need to be assembled into a finished sewing project. They lend well to simple design and minimal structure, which means easy sewing with a lot of gratification!

Cotton/Linen Canvas

Cotton/Linen Canvas is another substrate that Kokka has mastered. Cotton is easy to work with and the addition of linen adds texture and makes for a sturdy fabric. This blend is great for bags and home decor projects.

The Echino label by Etsuko Furuya features vibrant colors and graphic natural elements. Her aesthetic is very modern and artsy. Her prints also work well together in each consecutive line making Echino a great stash fabric for enthusiastic bag sewists!

Cotton Sateen

Cotton sateen is one of the newest substrates I have worked with from Kokka. Sateen has a silky polished surface that is created in the weaving process. It is a smooth, drapey fabric that sews like quilt cotton but looks absolutely delicious sewn into special garments.

The Echino label has a large selection of cotton sateen prints. I can’t wait to see what comes out next with this fabric!

Stonemountain Spotlight: Big Sur Canvas/Ventana Twill

We are so excited to share the results of the Stonemountain Spotlight with you! For this spotlight, we decided to focus on two of our favorite bottomweight fabrics, Big Sur Canvas and Ventana Twill. Ventana Twill is a wonderfully versatile fabric. It has a defined twill weave and a soft hand, and at a weight of 7.9 oz per square yard it is perfect for pants, jackets, skirts, structured dresses, and more. Big Sur Canvas is a bit heavier in weight (9.6 oz per square yard), a classic tightly-woven duck canvas cotton. It is suitable for pants, skirts, jackets, overalls, and home decor. We carry both of these 100% cotton fabrics in dozens of solid colors, so you’re sure to find the ideal color(s) for your project(s). Both fabrics are very easy to care for: machine wash cold/warm with gentle detergent (no bleach!), dryer on medium, and a warm iron with steam should keep your garment in great condition. And if you needed any more encouragement, don’t forget that we’re having a sale on these fabrics right now!

Need inspiration or a little guidance as to the best fabric + pattern combinations? Read on to learn all about the materials our staff sewists used to create their beautiful projects!

Alice made a Sienna Maker Jacket out of Big Sur Canvas in Walnut. Alice made a few changes to the pattern as written: “I left off one arm pocket, and subbed snaps for buttons. I left off the back button placket and cut it out on the fold, adding 1/2″ for just a tad more arm mobility. I also raised the arm pit area of the arm scythe by 5/8 for the same reason. Also I added a handmade applique to the back.” This project inspired Alice to take her regular style to the next level: “The “blank canvas” on the back inspired me to draw a pair of bird wings from a photo of a crane and translate them into fabric. The utilitarian aspect of the design is really fun and the canvas texture feels a bit nautical to me. Me and this jacket will be going everywhere together, as the CDC recommends, of course.”

Anna used both fabrics (Ventana Twill in Mint and Dark Green, Big Sur Canvas in Mint) to create a double-mint Swatch Cap! Anna says, “This is my 5th Swatch Cap, so it’s safe to say it has become a big part of my style! I love that these colors are brighter and will be great for the spring! I loved finding coordinating colors between the Ventana and Big Sur. Both were easy to sew even when I was sewing 4 layers together!” Anna made a few changes to this version of the Swatch Cap: “This time I used elastic as the back strap closure, instead of twill tape and velcro. Using my lining fabric, I created a tube, a little bit wider than my 3/4″ elastic, and gathered it so it looks like a scrunchy! Also I used the Big Sur for the cuff, so I cut the fabric on the bias to create a smoother curve once it is folded.”

Ashlee made the Acajou Pants and incorporated some clever color blocking: the two colors meet at the center front seam, and the same contrast fabric is used for the back and side pockets. Ashlee chose Big Sur Canvas in Black and Smokey Brown for this project, and said, “I love the slight texture to the fabric, it helps elevate it beyond just a basic. It’s also so easy work with!” These pants are similar to Ashlee’s everyday style, but pushed just a little a bit past it. Ashlee says, “The elastic on the back waistband makes these pants so comfortable. I haven’t figured out exactly how I’ll style them, but I’m looking forward to figuring it out!”

Catherine made the Blanca Flightsuit out of Big Sur Canvas in Walnut: “Big Sur Canvas is really nice to work with because it’s so stable, but isn’t so thick or heavy that my machine had any trouble with it.” After sizing down for a closer fit, Catherine made a few additional adjustments: “I shortened the bodice by 3/4″ (I’m 5’6″), which I decided to do after reading some pattern reviews and seeing other people’s Blanca Flightsuits on Instagram. I also tapered the legs to the smallest size and left off the zipper guard, both for personal style preference.” Catherine is so happy with her Blanca: “The color is very me and I love how the fit turned out. I am going to wear this a lot to work with comfy sneakers, but I think it would also be fun to dress it up with nicer shoes and some jewelry.”

Edgar made the Harlene overalls out of Big Sur Canvas. He said of the fabric, “I really like how easy it was to sew. Cutting out my pieces went really fast, and there wasn’t a lot of fraying which was really good. It’s not as heavy as I thought it would be.” Edgar chose to use white canvas and custom dye it with gunmetal iDye (Rit Dye would give a similar effect). As for his inspiration, Edgar said, “I always wanted a really nice pair of overalls. I wanted to try to make something I haven’t before. I was inspired by different styles of street wear and workwear, and I think these overalls will be a new staple in my wardrobe.”

Jennifer, inspired by a quilted coat by Miss Make, combined the Thayer jacket and the Clava quilt to make an amazing custom jacket out of several colors of Ventana Twill (bordeaux, canyon red, unbleached, fox, and light purple). To make her Thayer, Jennifer scaled the Clava quilt pattern to 50% of its size, and replaced the 2-panel jacket back construction with a single panel (p.s. If you eliminate the center back seam, don’t forget to take out the seam allowance at center back!). She wanted a clean, workwear-inspired look for the jacket front, so she omitted the topstitching, drafted simpler pockets, and used the jacket body fabric for the collar. Why change the pattern so much? Jennifer says, “I could have used one of those [workwear] patterns, but the shape of the Thayer has a slight A-line and it works better with my body shape. My goal was to create a statement-making outer layer that was comfortable enough to wear every day. I’d say I succeeded!”

Kat sewed the Wiksten Shift Dress out of dark green Ventana Twill. Of the fabric, Kat says, “I loved the color range! It was tricky for me to decide which color to use because I loved so many of them. I also really enjoy the weight of the twill, it’s not too heavy or stiff.” The Wiksten is a great match for Kat’s style: “It is a simple and casual design with a unique and fun detail (the oversized, patterned pockets). I also generally prefer more oversized/boxy styles which was easy to do by omitting the waist tie.” To customize her dress, Kat shortened the garment length and increased the size of the patch pockets. “It was a fun and simple make and I think it’s really great for beginner or more advanced sewists alike!”

Kathe is our resident Overalls Queen, and in a slight departure from her trademark garment, chose to make the Assembly Line Apron Dress. Kathe worked with Gray Ventana Twill, which was a nice medium weight, and easy to sew. It was easy to combine the small bodice and medium body pattern pieces for a custom fit, and Kathe added cute cat buttons to further personalize her dress. She says, “It totally fits my everyday Overall style. I will wear it always, everywhere, and I will make more!”

Kim also made the Assembly Line Apron Dress, and chose Ventana Twill in Black for her garment. She says of the fabric, “I love how easy it was to use, from washing it to sewing and ironing. A real dream.” This dress isn’t Kim’s usual style, but she says “I am so in love with my new apron dress, I plan to make more!” We can totally picture Kim in this dress in every color of the rainbow to match her excellent collection of fun sneakers!

Linda used Big Sur Canvas in Purple to make the Crescent Tote by Noodlehead. Linda liked that the fabric was good quality, easy to sew and clean, and had a great color selection. She personalized her tote by using imported Japanese cotton as a liner, and adding a rainbow zipper and an iron-on applique for decoration. Linda lengthened the nylon webbing handles by 2 inches so they could fit over her shoulder comfortably.

Linden made the Lander Pants in Ivy Ventana Twill. At the start of the project, Linden said, “I’ve been wanting to learn fitted pants/jeans for a while, it feels like my next milestone! Landers sound both accessible and challenging.” Linden made a test pair of Landers out of canvas, and found that they fit really well with minimal fit adjustments. Linden personalized this pair of Landers by block-printing some of the twill to use for contrasting pockets and the waistband. These are absolutely Linden’s style and turned out so great!

Marissa made the Harlene overalls out of Big Sur Canvas in Moss: “The color is so rich and perfect. The laundered Big Sur canvas was a lot easier to sew than I expected—it didn’t give my machine any trouble at all! The Harlene instructions explained where and how to strategically removing seam bulk, which was so helpful.” Marissa used the finished garment measurements to help determine her size (12), and removed 5 inches from the leg length (she’s 5’2″). Marissa used some special notions for her overalls: “It was my first time using proper topstitching thread, and I unexpectedly loved the process of stitching it and the result! I used the Kylie and the Machine dungarees hardware kit, which is great quality and a snap to install. A fresh denim needle was essential.”

Olivia made the Jenny Overalls in unbleached Ventana Twill. She has made lots of pants before, but this time used a new strategy to get a perfect fit: “My measurements put me at a size 16 at the hips, but simply grading from a 12 at the waist to a 16 in the hips hasn’t worked very well for me in the past. Instead, I traced out a 14 at the hip and did a “large prominent buttocks” adjustment from the book Fitting and Pattern Alteration. This fixed all of my usual fit issues at the hip.” Olivia also moved and lengthened the back darts, made the back pockets angled instead of curved, and tapered the leg shape. Making the Jenny Overalls in a neutral color will allow Olivia to match them with many different tops: “I don’t typically wear overalls, so it feels nice to have something to wear that is different than what I usually reach for in the morning. I plan to wear it a lot this summer and on days outside. I love the casual feel of them!”

Patty sewed the cropped version of the Sienna Maker Jacket out of unbleached Ventana Twill. She found the fabric soft and easy to use, even for tricky design elements like easing in a sleeve cap. Based on the finished pattern measurements, Patty sized down from her usual size to wear this jacket over lightweight layers. Patty made several customizations to her jacket: she drafted some welt pockets (the patch pockets made the white jacket too much like a lab coat!), used an elastic loop and button for closing the top of the collar, lengthened the body of the jacket by 1.5″, and added square Corozo buttons. Patty says, “This jacket is definitely unlike anything I’ve ever owned before, but it’s really versatile. It can be either casual or a bit dressy and I think I’ll get a lot of use out of it.”

We hope you’ve enjoyed the peek into our Big Sur Canvas/Ventana Twill projects and process. We hope you’ll be inspired to make some garments of your own out of these two fabulous fabrics!

90,000 Sail Against Canvas – Comparing Words

Sail

A sail is a tensile structure made of fabric or other membrane materials that uses wind energy to propel sailing vessels, including sailboats, sailboats, windsurfers, ice boats and even sail-powered land vehicles. Sails can be made from a combination of woven materials, including canvas or polyester fabric, laminated membranes, or bonded fibers, usually in a three- or four-sided shape.

A sail provides propulsion through a combination of lift and drag, depending on its angle of attack – its angle in relation to the apparent wind. Apparent wind is the speed of the air experienced by a moving craft and is the combined effect of the true wind speed and the speed of the sailing craft. The angle of attack is often limited by the windward orientation of the sailboat or the tip of the sail. At the points of the sail where the leading edge of the sail can be aligned with the apparent wind, the sail can act as an airfoil, creating a propulsive force as the air passes over its surface – just as an airplane wing creates lift, which prevails over the drag that slows down the forward airfoil. traffic.The more the angle of attack differs from the apparent wind when the sailboat turns downwind, the more drag increases and the lift in the form of motive forces decreases, until the downwind sail is dominated by drag forces. Sails cannot create propulsion if they are too close to the wind.

The sails may be attached to a mast, boom or other spar, or may be attached to a cable suspended from the mast.Typically, they are lifted by a line called a halyard, and their angle with respect to the wind is usually controlled by a line called a web. In use, they can be designed to bend in both directions along their surface, often as a result of their curved edges. Battens can be used to extend the trailing edge of the sail beyond the line of its anchorage points.

Other non-rotating aerofoils that are used in sailing vessels include wings, which are rigid structures similar to wings, and kites, which propel kite-rigged vessels but do not use a mast to support the airfoil and extend beyond the scope of this article.

Canvas

Canvas is an extremely durable solid color fabric used for sails, tents, tents, backpacks and other durable items, as well as fashion items such as bags, electronic cases and shoes. Artists also often use it as a painting surface, usually stretched over a wooden frame.

Modern canvases are usually made from cotton or linen, as well as PVC, although historically this was made from hemp.It differs from other heavy cotton fabrics such as denim in that it has a plain weave rather than a twill weave. There are two main types of canvas: plain and duck. The threads in duck cloth are more tightly woven. The term “duck” comes from the Dutch word “doek” meaning fabric. In the United States, linen is classified in two ways: by weight (ounces per square yard) and using a graded number system. The numbers are shown in reverse order, so the number 10 is lighter than the number 4.

Flooded architectural lighting, installation of floodlights

Today LED technologies are used everywhere. Special equipment allows the creation of entire lighting systems for decoration and a number of other functions. Architectural Lighting has found applications in the commercial, municipal and private sectors.

Complemented by spotlights and lamps, the building looks especially impressive and remarkable.

Backlighting is found not only at large infrastructure and monuments .LED technology has become so popular that we are used to taking it for granted. Despite this, effective outdoor advertising is not complete without LED lamps and other specialized equipment. This area is constantly developing and improving. As a result, many ordinary buildings in dense urban areas are transformed into real works of art.

Features and Benefits

Flood Lighting is designed to highlight the most striking and vibrant parts of the building.It involves the use of powerful floodlights and professional equipment. Most often, the equipment is not located on the building itself, but on nearby poles and racks.

This type of illumination differs in the following features:

  • obtaining a uniform light spot of a large area;
  • powerful and reliable equipment;
  • Even distribution of light over the entire surface;
  • Wide angle of inclination of the light flux.

When creating compositions with this kind of light, LED floodlights are especially popular. They are efficient, economical and practical to use, provide stable and high-quality work.

For the most rational use, it is required to use the program for calculating the illumination . They will allow you to find out the optimal distance between light sources and determine the places for their placement. These issues are dealt with by lighting designers and lighting technicians.They rely on certain technologies to achieve the best results.

Professional services in this area are offered by the advertising and production company MRRK. Turnkey projects are carried out here – from the development of an idea to the commissioning of equipment. A specialized organization guarantees the high quality of work. For an accurate calculation of the cost of service, it is recommended to use the advertising calculator on the site.

Banner fabric on the frame – Quarter

Description

The frame of the sign is made of a metal shaped tube.The banner is stretched over the frame and attached from the back, like a canvas for the artist, while creating an ideal tension, without the frame being visible. Thus, the sign looks aesthetically pleasing. It is not immediately possible to distinguish a banner fabric on a frame from other types of signage using a rigid vinyl film such as plastic, acrylic glass, composite or cellular polycarbonate. This signage format is suitable for small sizes, up to 2 meters high and up to 5 meters long. To illuminate the sign at night, it is possible to install spotlights.

Canvas – a fabric with a characteristic perpendicular weave of threads.Flax or hemp is the traditional raw material for fabric. Later, canvas was also made from other natural and even synthetic fibers.

Known canvas from time immemorial. Even in Ancient Egypt, tunics were sewn from it. In Russia, up to the beginning of the 20th century, canvas remained the main material for clothing of the middle and lower class. Now it is more often used for decorating interiors, sewing towels, curtains, making shoes. Work clothes made of canvas are not uncommon even today: the material is very durable, resistant to wear and tear and is not afraid of numerous washes.

Interest in the material has re-emerged in the wake of the fashion for natural fabrics and muted natural colors.

Features and characteristics of fabric canvas

The characteristics of the linen depend on the quality and thickness of the threads. Thin fabric was woven for ceremonial towels, festive shirts, thick – for work clothes, sails, sacks. However, with all the variety of types and applications, the canvas retains some of its qualities unchanged.

In appearance, the fabric practically did not differ from linen fabric, but it was cheaper.

Ingredients: what additives are added to natural fabric

Linen is the first fiber used for fabric production. But the first material was canvas. Later, it was made from hemp fibers. Later, other fibers began to be used – jute, cotton and even synthetic fibers. Read about the varieties of calico fabrics here.

Divided into 3 groups by composition:

  1. Traditional – unbleached linen made from natural fibers only.
  2. Synthetic – made of polypropylene, polyester, polyamide. The fabric differs from natural canvas by its exceptional resistance to the action of water.
  3. Blended – contains both natural and artificial threads.

Fabrics with a plain weave, but bleached and thinner ones, began to be referred to canvas: canvas, double-thread, calico. However, they are not a real canvas – an unbleached canvas.

Quality and properties of canvas material

A distinctive feature of any type is the weaving of threads.It forms the characteristic texture of fabrics, thicker and coarser than the thread was. Weaving is very simple from a technological point of view, so the fabric is affordable. Find out about the description of the fabric region here.

Resistance and density to wear determines the thickness of the thread and the nature of the weave. Thick and short fibers are woven in 1 strand, thinner and longer ones in 2, so they get a double strand. To increase the density, 3 or even 4 threads are woven.

Until the beginning of the 20th century, festive clothes made of canvas were inherited.

Linen fabrics – white or silvery, hemp fabrics – yellowish, brown, jute gives the material a greenish mustard tint.

Bleached or one-colored fabric is more often used for clothing.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Canvas Fiber

Canvas fabric, both coarse and fine, has many advantages:

  • The material does not wear out and can withstand an unlimited number of washes, moreover, it becomes softer after each wash;
  • the fabric does not stretch, does not change color, no pellets appear on it;
  • material is hygroscopic, therefore it is very pleasant to wear, even with some roughness;
  • natural canvas, like biomatin, is hypoallergenic and does not accumulate electricity;
  • weakly absorbs dirt and is easy to clean.

Disadvantages of the fabric associated with its texture:

  1. Canvas is rough, even thin. It does not irritate the skin, but such touches are not pleasant to everyone.
  2. Natural color is uneven, dirty, texture does not match well with modern fabrics.

Production and fabrication of material

Canvas – woven fabric. The raw material for it is plant fiber, which is supplied to the factory in the form of compressed bales. The process of making fabric from it includes 3 series of operations:

  1. Spinning – the bales are loosened, cleaned of debris, and spun.Longer yarns are spun from short fibers on a spinning machine. Then the material is combed out, leveled and twisted on a twisting machine. This is how roving is obtained. The rolled canvas is stretched and wound onto bobbins.
  2. Weaving – on a loom, the yarn obtained is used to weave a canvas. The order of weaving of threads is set by the program or manually.
  3. Finishing – includes various operations. For example, boiling the canvas gets rid of any impurities, mercerization gives it shine and smoothness, whitening provides a white color to the finished canvas.

The synthetic technology is noticeably different. The filaments are produced by forcing a liquid or semi-liquid feedstock through dies. The fabric is woven in the same way as natural.

Varieties of which canvas material is used for painting

Both the quality and purpose of the material depends on the nature of the raw materials used. On this basis, fabrics are divided into several types. About the description of dublerin fabric, and what it is used for, read this link.

Linen

Flax leaves are used as raw materials. The threads obtained from them are strong and long. Linen fabrics are not subject to structural changes, retain grain and do not stretch.

The canvas is used for sewing clothes, and not only for working or ethnic, but also for the production of the highest quality picture canvas.

There are 2 main types of linseed:

  1. Fabric made from long fiber yarns — Includes a smoother yarn for grain and uniformity.
  2. Fleece fabric – short fiber, includes thickenings, knots, thinning. It is used for the production of bags, shoes, packaging.

Board

Harsh unbleached linen made from short staple and fleece. Due to the short length of the threads, the fabric is more prone to deformation, moreover, it is treated with acid, which also reduces the strength. The border is not suitable for sewing clothes or producing pictures: due to unevenness, the fabric is difficult to priming and absorbs paint unevenly.This material will tell you what it looks like and what is sewn from crepe satin.

The bead is used as a lining and sealing material.

Clarity of the silhouette of a classic jacket or coat, the fit of clothes to the figure is due to the rigidity of the fixing pad. Bortovka does an excellent job with this role.

To increase the density and rigidity of the fabric, horse and camel hair and wool are added during the manufacture. Such a lining does not lose its shape even when wet or during washing.

Hemp

Obtained from hemp yarn. In terms of strength, the material is comparable to linen, but it has a characteristic gray, yellowish or greenish tint. A brown or yellowish tint is a sign of poor quality. Because of this, hemp is practically not used in painting.

Hemp canvas is mainly used for technical needs: canvas bag, ethnic style bags, various packaging.

This color is not very suitable for clothes.It acts as a material for characteristic interior details in eco-style, ethnic styles.

Jute

Made from jute fibers using conventional technology. Jute yarn is fragile, therefore, the material is light, soft, highly prone to deformation. It makes no sense to increase the density of the weave in order to obtain a stronger fabric.

Jute linen is used only for sewing clothes. The material has a soft light yellow color and a beautiful sheen.In addition, the fabric is lighter and more pleasant to the touch.

Cotton

Cotton threads are noticeably smoother than linen threads. This ensures greater evenness of the fabric itself, on the one hand, and the loss of expressive texture, on the other. Cotton linen is thin and soft, but not as interesting as linen.

For paintings, only the densest version is used – with an indicator of more than 220 k / cc. cm, and still, such a canvas is considered unsuitable for serious work. Cotton is afraid of moisture, is prone to mold and decay. Cotton fabric is more suitable for clothes. The natural color of the linen is white with a cream shade, which makes it an excellent material for bedding.

Synthetic

The raw material is usually polyester fiber. The threads are very even, the structure is homogeneous, and the material is almost smooth. The artificial canvas does not decay, does not deform, does not stretch, it is extremely resistant to the action of water. However, how the canvas behaves after 50 years is unknown, therefore, it is rarely used as a basis for paintings.

The structure of the polyester fabric is poorly visible.

For clothes, especially ethnic ones, a fabric is produced that imitates the texture of linen – canvas, for example. Read about the description of tiara fabric in this article.

Combined

Combines natural and artificial threads. Most often we are talking about semi-linen fabrics, where linen is combined with lavsan or polyester. The color of the canvas is lighter: the lavsan threads are white, and the flax threads are grayish.

In painting, combined try not to use.Natural and synthetic fibers absorb primer and paint differently, and the canvas is unevenly colored. For clothes and shoes, this option is quite suitable. Although synthetic fibers reduce the hygroscopicity of matter, they also provide greater elasticity and lightness. Ironing the fabric is much easier.

Scope of application: what is sewn from fabric

The application of the fabric determines its density and the nature of the threads:

  1. High density canvas is rough to the touch, heavy, difficult to stain and is most often natural in color.Bags, canvas, various types of packaging, as well as decorative bags and some interior items are made from it. In addition, a dense canvas has been used in painting for more than 7 centuries as a basis for paintings.
  2. Medium density material is much softer, absorbs moisture better, easier to paint. For clothes, such qualities are an advantage, and for packaging – a disadvantage. For paintings, canvas with a density of less than 220 g / cc. cm is also not good.
  3. Low Density Canvas – Made from fine threads.It is almost always whitened. The fabric is thin and light, it is used for sewing not only adult, but also children’s clothing up to baby’s undershirts.

Fine linen is used to make excellent bed linen and towels.

Guidelines for the care of the canvas

Canvas is a very unassuming fabric. Caring for it is determined by the purpose of the product and the density of the material:

  1. Burlap and border are not washed. Products from them are dried and shaken out.
  2. Clothes, accessories, bed linen are washed and ironed at high temperatures. If necessary, apply harsh washing regimes.
  3. The synthetic fabric is washed at a temperature not exceeding 30 C and ironed as a mixed fabric.
  4. Linen and especially cotton canvases can shrink after washing. If necessary, the product is stretched during ironing.

Do not use bleach when washing. The material changes color and becomes more fragile.

Conclusions

  1. Canvas – fabric made of linen, hemp and even artificial fibers with plain weaving.
  2. The material is strong and durable. It practically does not wear out and does not change over time.
  3. There are many types of canvas: different densities, with different weaves from fibers of different origins.Their properties are different.
  4. Caring for your canvas products is extremely easy. The material easily tolerates multiple washings and does not need delicate dry cleaning.

Multifunctional heavy-duty rail system from Gerriets

The Gerriets heavy-duty CARGO rail system is available in S, M, L and XL versions. The profile is made of high quality aluminum alloy through an extrusion process.With an extremely low rolling resistance of 0.8%, two LED panels with a total weight of 2.4 t can move horizontally with a pull of only 80 kg – in theaters, studios, etc. The high carrying capacity of the Gerriets heavy-duty rail system, even with a large span, speaks for itself. Thanks to their box structure, all CARGO profiles have a high flexural rigidity. Due to the low deformation, the horizontal forces required to move the loads also remain very low.A wide range of different carriages made of aluminum and plastic, as well as numerous accessories, clearly prove the versatility of the CARGO system. Carriage channels are the same for all profiles. Thus, all carriages and numerous accessories can be used in all CARGO systems – S, M, L and XL.

The scope of CARGO rail systems is universal. In addition to the classic field of application as a heavy rail, in particular for LED panels, integration into technical ceilings or special decorations, it is also possible to use it as a rail.Thus, for example, currently 18 CARGO L rails, used on the main stage of the Chemnitz Theater as machine rods, make CARGO extremely flexible. Studio equipment such as spotlights, monitor speakers or LED displays can be easily suspended from a rail and moved horizontally with the new universal spotlight carriages from Gerriets. CARGO can also be used in the stage area as a handrail for a spotlight on a working gallery to accommodate spotlights.

Depending on the load and the distance between the supports, the S, M, L and XL profiles meet any need:

CARGO S
With a support distance of 3 m, CARGO S can withstand a single load of 160 kg or a distributed load with a total weight of 288 kg.

CARGO M
With the same distance between the supports, CARGO M can withstand a single load of 400 kg or a distributed load with a total weight of 720 kg.

CARGO L
With a support distance of 3 m, the CARGO L profile can withstand a single load of 800 kg or a distributed load with a total weight of 1,440 kg.Due to the high load capacities, with a support distance of 6 m, the unit load is still 175 kg and the distributed load is 315 kg.

CARGO XL
The largest profile – XL – withstands a single load of 1 200 kg or a distributed load with a total weight of 1 995 kg at a distance between the supports of 3 m. Due to the high load capacity, with a support distance of 6 m, the unit load can be 320 kg, and the distributed load can be 576 kg.
