Canvas, stretchers and canvas boards
Linen was the first fabric used for painting on and it remains as a symbol of the classical tradition. Strong and stable, linen was the first fabric to replace wood. Then came cotton, less prestigious but nevertheless having the qualities of a natural fiber. In the modern age came synthetic fibrers with their exceptional mechanical properties. The Pebeo range of canvases, stretchers and canvas boards covers all choices and formats, including ready-to-paint surfaces, custom made surfaces and canvas rolls for those who like to do it themselves.
