In this case, a roll will be sent in length depending on the number of pieces selected. Material – 100% flax. Linen is strong and durable, and remains the preferred surface for many artists. It is made from the fibres of the flax plant and top quality flax is harvested in Belarus. If you want your painting to last then a linen canvas is a sound investment. The threads that make up linen, known as the warp and weft threads, weigh the same, which means they are less prone to expansion or contraction due to moisture. Linen retains its natural oils, which helps to preserve the fibre’s flexibility and stops the canvas from going brittle. It is also regarded as having a more ‘natural’ weaved finish than cotton. Because of its strength linen holds up to a heavy painting hand and does not become slack as easily as cotton canvas. Linen Canvas, grown from the flax produced in Belarus, is still considered to be the superior choice for Artists who want to work on a specific textured cloth. Belarussian Linen canvas is distinguished by its unique natural colour and irregular character of weave, which is the result of the round shape of the linen fibres – this texture permeates through the layers of paint, imparting a sense of depth to the work. Individual linen fibres are considerably longer and springier than cotton’s; the material is therefore somewhat more durable and has a livelier feel when stretched. Given their reputation and popularity among Artists, Belarussian Linens are highly-valued. Working with Linen brings the pleasure of painting on a cloth that can be specifically suited to the artist’s style and preference and carries the nostalgia of using a material trusted by the Old Masters.
