Midweight with a crisp drape, this cotton canvas is super versatile and a breeze to sew. Thanks to its washed finish, this cotton canvas is soft and relaxed with a perfectly lived-in feel. At 8.5 ounces, this fabric is ideal for projects that require more heft than linen but less structure than a classic rigid canvas. Perfect for light jackets, pants, or chore coats, this versatile canvas also works well sewn up into bags and accessories.

Care Instructions

Machine wash cool, tumble dry low, do not bleach, iron medium. Fabrics made with natural fibres will fade with washing and wear, developing a beautiful worn-in look. If you prefer to keep your colours more vibrant, please handle with extra care: hand wash cold and do not tumble dry or dry clean.

Note: we recommend that you pre-wash / pre-treat your fabric in the manner you intend to wash your finished garment.
