What is CANVAS and How Is It Made?

Please visit our page What is Cotton Duck Canvas? to get detailed answers on various textile related questions. So, what is canvas? Duck is a strong, heavy textile available in a variety of weights and qualities. It’s woven as a plain-woven cotton fabric or a basket weave pattern. Canvas is often heavy, strong, and firm – like duck. Customers use this versatile fabric for awnings, slipcovers, boat covers, and home decor projects. Heavy plain-woven cotton creates a rustic yet practical look. It’s either plain or basket (Oxford) weave and could have a soft or firm hand.

  • Water Repellent: A treatment that enables the textile to repel water but does not make it completely waterproof.
  • Waterproof: Will resist leakage and wetting even under a heavy shower.
  • Mold and Mildew: A finish to prevent the growth of mold or fungus on cellulosic and protein-based textiles. Mold and mildew is also known to damage synthetic fibers.
  • Flame-Retardant Finish: Textiles can me made flame resistant by using inherently flame-resistant fibers, by adding flame resistant chemicals to the spinning solution when the fiber is made, or by applying a chemical to the fabric. Flame retardant textiles should be durable (able to withstand up to 50 washes), non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. In most cases, the hand and texture of the textile product remains the same.
  • Basket weave-type is a plain weave where two or more yarns travel together in the warp direction while two more yarns get inserted together in the fill direction (ballistic nylon).
  • Plain weave is a weave where one yarn travels in the warp direction while another yarn is inserted in the fill direction. (Click these links for some of our wholesale cotton products => army ducks, Sunforger, numbered duck.)

This is not to be confused with color. In the textile industry during manufacturing, this describes unfinished, loom-state woven or knitted goods. Please call us to inquire about wholesale cotton fabric prices.

A big question we constantly get is what type of material is to be used for an outdoor tent.  More important that the fabric used is the environment it will be used in and the duration it will be exposed to the elements.  For wall tents (hunting) in the Midwest that have lower humidity levels, a cotton product would be ideal (or even Sunforger canvas).

Cotton tents with no weather treatment should always be covered with a vinyl tarp, but make sure there is an inch or two gap between the cotton and the vinyl.  A wall tent in Montana in the middle of winter would most likely be made of Sunforger army cloth.  Sunforger canvas is already weather proofed, but it’s still breathable.  The inside of a wall tent should be dry and warm in the winter, and if a vinyl tent is used in this situation there will be moisture build up due to condensation on the inside.

Sunforger Army Duck

In the old days, most numbered ducks were woven to 22″ standard width. The numbering system of ducks (#1, #6, #12, etc.) comes from subtracting the weight of one 1 linear yard by 22″ width of the fabric from 19.  Number 12 was roughly 12 oz/sq yd so a linear yard at 22″ weighs roughly 7.33 (round down to 7). Subtract 7 from 19 and you get 12, hence Number 12 duck.

Numbered Duck

According to weight in a numerical system, Duck is classified in a manner such that grade 1 is the heaviest and grade 12 is the lightest variety. Numbered duck is numerically created and identified in weights from 1 to 12, but numbers 7, 9, and 11 are no longer used. Some typical uses of various grades (with weights in ounces) are:

  • 1 (30 ounces per square yard or 1,000 grams per square meter) – ideal for floor & wall covering, sound absorption, covers for equipment, heavy bags, storage bins, horse packs.
  • 2 (28 ounces per square yard or 950 grams per square meter) – enclosure or hatch tarps/ tarpaulins
  • 3 (26 ounces per square yard or 880 grams per square meter) – bags that can withstand the tough maritime elements at sea
  • 4 (24 ounces per square yard or 810 grams per square meter) – work clothes that are heavy duty/ rugged wear clothes, hammocks, director chairs, sand bags, place mats, material for belts
  • 5 (23 ounces per square yard or 780 grams per square meter) – heavy duty work clothes, rugged wear
  • 6 (21 ounces per square yard or 710 grams per square meter) – multi-purpose utility bags, place mats, material for belts
  • 8 (18 ounces per square yard or 610 grams per square meter) – backpacks, painters drop cloth, tipis, tents, clothes bags, tarps, outdoor awnings, work clothes
  • 10 (14.75 ounces per square yard or 500 grams per square meter) – shower curtains, artist canvas, murals, painters drop cloth, floor coverings, clothes, hammocks
  • 12 (11.5 ounces per square yard or 390 grams per square meter) – stretched artist canvas, light clothes, furniture slip covers, slipcovers of any kind

The recommended way to properly clean and care for your waxed canvas is to sponge wipe with cold water only. In the event that the waxed canvas is soiled with dirt, gently brush it off with a soft bristled brush and then rinse with the cold water.  After cleansing, it is best to hang and air dry in well ventilated area for at least 24 hours. Drying in a conventional drying machine or using chemicals at a dry cleaner’s will damage the waxed canvas and strip it of its  waterproof properties.

What are the benefits of our digital fabric printing services, you may ask?

To simplify a complex process, the best answer would be – More color, 100% accuracy, better feel, and full customization.

First, digital printing is more colorful with intelligent coloring!

From the point of view of color, digital printing accurately controls the flow through the microcomputer for exactitude. The color of the dye is rich and vivid, and the digital printing can achieve the extreme ranges as long as it is equipped with a dedicated ICC curve.  The pigment ink used in digital printing is a nano-sized pigment paste that is ejected from an ultra-precision print head under the control of a microcomputer. Its fineness is beyond the reach of traditional printing.

Second, digital printing is more accurate!

The fine patterns of digital printing can control the ink drop size of the inkjet print head and easily control the precision. Colors are matched against digital files to ensure 100% exactitude.

Third, digital printing feels better!

The digital printing basically has a no coating feeling, and the printing is light, thin, soft, and has good tackiness. Even paint digital printing, because the formula resin content is very small, basically does not affect the feel. Acidic digital printing, active digital printing, disperse thermal transfer printing, and discrete direct-injection digital printing are all uncoated and do not affect the original fabric feel.

Fourth, digital printing allows for complete customization!

The digital printing process allows such precision and accuracy, that a fabric can be crafted with an exact logo, design, pattern, or color variation. Any Maker, Crafter, Interior Designer, or other can order a specific finished fabric unique to their needs and utility; any business can order a fabric with their logo and branded identity with unique color palette. Full customization is available, and the benefits are unparalleled!

Sample finished fabric digitally printed

There are a few types of mesh fabric: polyester mesh fabric; nylon mesh fabric; and stainless steel mesh.

Red Laundry Mesh
Red Laundry Mesh

Polyester Mesh fabric is made by a chemical synthetic fiber. It offers resistance to high temperatures, water and chemicals, though does not have the “stretchability” or wear resistance that nylon mesh has. Nylon mesh fabric  belongs to the polyamide system, and not the polyester system. This mesh has high wear resistance, strength, chemical resistance, and water resistance, though over time, the tension will be low. Stainless steel screen mesh possesses good abrasion resistance, high strength but very low flexibility.

Our polyester mesh fabric has such great versatility, and depending on the final end-use and process in which it is utilized, is the front-runner to consider for all mesh fabric types. It is highly durable and has great wet and dry crocking value which means that the ink/ dye will not rub off. This is an ideal mesh fabric for sewing purposes and applications.
