Focus on Fabric – Cotton Duck (Canvas)

From the Dutch word “doek” (cloth or canvas), duck is a heavy, plain weave cotton fabric with a very wide range of uses from sneakers to painting canvases to tents and sails, and of course work clothes.  Duck fabric is woven with two warp yarns and a single weft yarn.

Most of our cotton duck work wear is 17oz fabric, which is about as heavy as we can use for garments with complex construction, such as Type III jackets.  Our IH/Thrux Lawrence collaboration bags use a hefty 24oz canvas.
