What Is Canvas?

Canvas is a plain-woven fabric typically made out of cotton and, to a lesser extent, linen. Canvas fabric is known for being durable, sturdy, and heavy duty. By blending cotton with synthetic fibers, canvas can become water resistant or even waterproof, making it a great outdoor fabric.

Canvas, known for its strength and versatility, is a textile with several practical uses that apply to people from painters to handbag designers and sailors.

Waterproof and Windproof

Canvas is so tightly woven during manufacturing that it has a waterproof quality, which is often augmented by waterproofing treatments at the completion of the manufacturing process. For this reason, canvas is used in many outdoor fabric applications. In some cases, after treatments, it is even qualified as "marine grade" and used as a sail making material. Canvas is windproof, another factor that facilitates its use as sails and awning fabric.


In addition to being wind and waterproof, canvas is a sturdy fabric that does not yield to frequent stress or tugs. For this reason, it is often used in tent and awning construction, as well as the basis for several types of shoe.

Color Retention

The tight weave of canvas usually means that it retains dyed color extraordinarily well, even under harsh environmental conditions.

Accepts Treatments

One of the largest benefits of canvas is that it readily accepts a variety of chemical treatment to enhance its natural properties, including treatments to increase water resistance, flame retardation and mildew resistance. Treated canvas can last for decades with relatively little maintenance compared to many other fabrics.
