Canvas seems like such a 'summer' fabric since its used in sails, backpacks, tents, and beach bags. All things that come to mind when I'm thinking of my dream backpacking or boardwalk holidays.. ok so I wouldn't be roughing it so much with a tent and backpack, but I might use a cute bag while shopping before spending the night in a relaxing hotel.
"Modern canvas is usually made of cotton or linen, although historically it was made from hemp. It differs from other heavy cotton fabrics, such as denim, in being plain weave rather than twill weave. Canvas comes in two basic types: plain and duck. The threads in duck canvas are more tightly woven. The term duck comes from the Dutch word for cloth, doek. In the United States, canvas is classified in two ways: by weight (ounces per square yard) and by a graded number system. The numbers run in reverse of the weight so a number 10 canvas is lighter than number 4."
