I am so impressed with this fabric. It is soft and easy to work with. I use this fabric to make custom outdoor pillows. The water just rolls right off- very happy with my purchase.
Awesome service too :-)
I just received my first order from Big Duck Canvas and have been very impressed with the customer experience. Thank you! I have only begun to sew with this fabric so I can not speak to the durability, but it has a wonderful hand, look, and initial water testing looks phenomenal. I'd highly recommend this product.
Quality is great and working with Big Duck was a pleasure.
I have made 20 foot tee pees from white canvas tarps not treated for fire and or mold. I get maybe 2 ...3 years before they rot and fell apart. I am hoping for maybe 8 yrs with sun forager, treated for fire and mold. Ask me to rate again in 2012. it does appear to be a quality product. It tailored well. No water leeks first rain,so far... so good. priced affordable and good delivery. Positive outlook so far.
This product is all that the sales person said that it would be for my project. I made 4 RV window awnings to replace the original ones. I was skeptic about the color - we wanted something beige. Upon arrival we held it up beside the RV and it matched perfectly. Thanks again!
I have just received the canvas, and it is beautiful - tough and smooth and easy to sew with a normal sewing machine. I'm making a tipi and a wall tent, but I don't know yet how it will hold up to the wind and weather up here in the Montana mountains. Quick delivery was appreciated. I only wish it hadn't been UPS. I have had lots of trouble with them recently. But they managed to get this order to me, so it was ok.
This is the best duck canvas I gotten to use and the service from Big Duck was great!
We used this canvas to make a bedroll for my dad's birthday. It was perfect and he is very happy with it!
