The Belgian Linen Canvas Of Masterpieces

In Belgium, the cool climate shades delicate blue blooms. The rolling fields give way to calm, breathless waters. There, the soil is the heritage. The passion is apparent in the farmers who tend the secret to growing the finest textile in the world.

For hundreds of years, the flax produced in this small corner of Northern Europe has been prized for its exceptional strength. Belgian linen canvas rolls were shipped the world over. Its rich texture is unparalleled, lending vibrancy to masterworks’ fine detail. The captivating luster of its fibers has long made it the Belgian linen artist canvas of choice.

Trusted by the likes of Monet, Vermeer, and Rembrandt, Belgian Linen canvas for painting truly is the canvas of masterpieces.
