Canvas fabric, which you have all heard of at least once, is famous for tote bags and other items.
Canvas is a thick, flat-weave fabric woven from cotton or linen.
It is called “canvas” because it was used as a material for sailboats in Japan in the past.
Canvas is a thick, plain weave cloth densely woven with thick threads. In the past, there were many tents and sheets made of cotton canvas in elementary schools, but nowadays it is mostly used for bags, shoes, and other clothing items.
Canvas is characterized by its various thicknesses. Some are hard, some are soft, and others have a variety of textures. Also, since it is cotton, color blurring varies from batch to batch, so it is also characterized by a fair amount of color blurring.
No.11 canvas, hard finish
No.2 cotton canvas, glued finish
The weave of cotton canvas was determined by the JIS standard, but this standard has been abolished, but it is still applied in Japan. No. 11 has two warp threads twisted together. The smaller (thicker) the number, the greater the number of twisted threads. And the more threads that are twisted, the stronger it is.

The characteristic of canvas is its durability. It is a fabric that is hard at first, but as it is used, it becomes tougher and tougher. We often propose it as a fabric for bags, but we have written this first as basic information.
