The world’s most produced natural fibre, grown in many countries. A natural fibre that grows on the seed of the cotton plant. The fibre is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile.
Lightweight cotton is available in 3oz-5oz. Once the weight goes above 5oz the weave of the fabric gets coarser and the term canvas is used to describe the fabric. Canvas is available in 8oz-20oz.
Cotton is available as conventional, organic and Fairtrade. The organic cotton is fertiliser and pesticide free. The cotton bag is used more and more as a sustainable alternative to disaposable plastic bags and is 100% bio-degradable. The textile is soft and breathable and can be dyed in any pantone color.
Canvas is available in a range of weights and finishes. Canvas can be supplied in various weaves such as, Duck, Twills, Drills, Casement, Voile, Poplin, Dobby and Sheeting, giving the fabric a unique finish.
The natural colour of cotton is ecru, but it can be dyed to match any Pantone colour. Before the fabric is dyed it must be bleached to remove the natural ecru colour, this results in the fabric being an off-white colour (RFD).
Stock fabric is available in 3oz, 5oz, 8oz, 10oz, 12oz & 16oz.
