Canvas from organic cotton in natural colour

Strong canvas of organic cotton, for bags, coats, cushions, etc.
With a weight of 300 gr/m2 this can be called a medium weight canvas, supple and flexible. A characteristic of this fabric in the natural colour, is that it shows small spots of plant rests that would have disappeared when it had been bleached or dyed.
Canvas has distinct properties, such as its high resistance against sunlight, its strength (when wet it is even about 20% stronger then dry) and the fact that it stays in shape for a long time.

  • unbleached, natural
  • medium weight
  • versatile

Clothing comfort

Cotton is relatively flexible, it is very comfortable, feels soft on the skin and can absorb up to 20% of water without feeling wet. Organic cotton fabrics are produced eco-friendly and are also skin-friendly.

Origin of the material

The organic cotton was grown in the Turkish districts near the Aegean Sea (so called Aegean cotton). Turkey has a large cotton industry and the cotton was spun and knitted there in GOTS-certified factories, thus limiting the carbon footprint.
