GOTS certified - water repellent canvas in ruby colour

A water repellent canvas from organic 100% organic cotton for jackets, bags etc.

Our woven organic cotton canvas is now available with a water repellent finish. Basically this wine red fabric is equivalent to our other canvas with the same article number. It is made with 100% Aegean GOTS certified ringspun yarns, it is woven and finished in Turkey, it has the same weight (300 gr/m2) and despite the water repellent finish it feels the same.

  • Prime quality
  • Water repellent Ruco Dry-Eco finish
  • GOTS certified

Eco-friendly finish

Just like our other canvasses this ochre coloured fabric is strong and has a high resistance against sunlight. The water-repellent properties make the difference. Normally, water-repellency is obtained by finishing a fabric with fluorine polymers. These are very effective but also bear risks for the environment. However, the Ruco Dry-Eco finish that was used on this fabric is eco-friendly and totally compliant to the GOTS standard. Ideal for eco-friendly jackets, bags and other outdoor applications.
The fabric is washable up to 10 times at maximum 30°C and will retain its hydrophobic quality after it is ironed or tumble dried. After washing it 10 times the fabric will gradually loose its water repellency.
The water repellent finish can resist abrasion and wearing, though it will dissolve by using softeners or drycleaning chemicals.

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 from which this ruby coloured canvas has been made, 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.
