Weatherproof and canvas fabric FAQs

Where can I use weatherproof and canvas materials?

Our weatherproof and canvas materials are often used for upholstery due to their strength, durability and ease of cleaning. They are also popular for use as outdoor curtain fabrics, as they can withstand rain and shine without becoming damaged. Our weatherproof and canvas curtains fabrics can be used to dress up your deck or verandah, outdoor bar or even help section of a gazebo or pool area.

How are materials made weatherproof?

Heavy canvas is usually made weatherproof with a coating of synthetic wax or rubber. You can also sandwich layers of material together, with the outer layer being a tightly woven fabric combined with a membrane that doesn't allow water to penetrate.

Is canvas hard to sew with?

Because it is thick and heavy, canvas can be quite difficult to sew with if you don't have the right tools. If you're hand-sewing canvas, make sure you are using strong upholstery thread or heavy-duty cotton or polyester thread, and have a large needle that can accommodate the thread and also pierce the canvas easily. A heavy-duty sewing machine will have an easier time sewing canvas - sew with similar settings that you would use for denim, a similarly thick and tough fabric.
