Italian-made, a fantastic range of traditional stretched linen and cotton canvases. Using the finest linen thread from France, the woven linen is then primed and stretched to the highest of standards. All the linen and cotton canvases are stretched to the reverse giving a clean edge suitable for displaying without a frame. Only renewable wood (red fir) dried to the right degree of humidity, is employed to assure the best stability of stretcher. A special design of joint and stretcher bar assures resistance to torsion and the perfect control of the stretcher's tension. The care that has gone into the production of these canvases is outstanding.
The linen stretched canvases are ready to use and available in three variations; Oil Primed Extra Fine suitable for Oil painters requiring a smooth surface, Universal Primed Fine Grain suitable for all mediums and Universal Primed Medium grain ideal for the painter who wishes for a more pronounced texture to work on.
