Artists Canvases world wide shortages
As a result of the Covid 19 Pandemic and a consequent substantial increase in the demand for creative arts products and activities, there is a chronic shortage of stretched canvases.
The great majority of canvases are manufactured overseas and those manufacturers are trying to cope with a huge surge in global demand.
We apologise for our stock restrictions in many of our canvas ranges but assure you of our efforts to bring the stock levels back to normal as soon as possible.

The Original Triple Primed canvas, Loxley GOLD uses a heavier 360gsm pure Cotton canvas. With an application of a ‘sizing’ layer and then three coats of titanium white pigmented primer, the end result is a surface which takes the paint it’s best. With minimal colour sink, each brush stroke is captured as the artist intended and inspiration can flow unhindered.
Available in the traditional depth of 17mm (standard) and the 36mm double-depth (chunky) across a wide range of formats and sizes. The GOLD Chunky range uses a special fixing method for the canvas which holds it at a consistent ‘drum tight’ tension. Expander keys are provided for future re-tensioning if necessary.
