Loomstate Linen
Raw unprimed linen is known as ÒloomstateÓ linen. Linen is recognised as the best natural fibre for artistsÕ canvas. Sourced from the flax plant, linen fibres are stronger than any other natural fibre. The fibres range in length from 25cm to 90cm and are round, unlike cotton fibres that are flat. This shape provides extra strength as well as an interesting painting surface.

Libeco
Since the 1850s, Libeco from Belgium have weaved the finest loomstate, or unprimed, linen canvas for artists. As masters of linen, Libeco weave the fabric using the longest natural threads, under strict supervision and in the finest time-honoured tradition.

The properties of linen, derived from the humble flax plant, have been known for hundreds of years. Artists can take pride in the fact that the production of linen is an ecologically sustainable process. With a short growth cycle and low water usage, the entire flax plant, from seeds to fibre pulp, is put to use in one form or another.
