Cotton & Linen Canvas

Upper Canada Stretchers provides a good choice of traditional linen canvas as well as cotton canvas, both primed and unprimed.

Our professional quality 100% pure cotton duck canvas has a tighter weave and higher thread count than economy-grade canvas, making it an excellent and economical base for your paintings. The primed cotton canvas is double-primed with professional quality acrylic gesso.

Linen, while more expensive than cotton, is the traditional choice for professional artists. Linen canvas is the most durable fabric to put paint on and, due to its strength, is ideal for large paintings.
