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.

Loxley Ashgate canvases are made with more openly weaved Cotton duck which is sized than double primed. This provides a slightly ‘toothier’ surface texture ideal for many styles of painting. 

The Ashgate range is available in both traditional 17mm (standard) depth and 36mm (Chunky) depth versions across many sizes including sizes A1 to A5. With staple & tack free sides, these canvases can be either framed or displayed as painted.


The Loxley Ashgate Chunky stretched canvas is made from 10oz medium grain 100% cotton canvas. They are 36mm deep and are stapled on the back keeping the sides free to be painted. The canvas is sized and then double primed making them suitable for both oil or acrylic painting.
