CANVAS AND LINENS

The Caravaggio range of Italian cottons and linens is very popular. With good reason: they're versatile, high quality and represent great value.  Caravaggio cottons and linens have been milled in Varese, Italy for over 30 years. Available in a range of styles, colours and widths, the Caravaggio collection is prepared with a layer of clear-primer, and three layers of universal primer. The universal-primed surface is suitable for both oils and acrylics. Caravaggio's clear-primed surface as a great alternative to rabbit skin glue.
