Traditionally, the canvas is made of hemp as it makes it more reliable and more durable. Nowadays, materials like cotton and synthetic materials like polyester have replaced hemp. The content of the canvas print determines how the final image will come out. As cotton absorbs the colour, the pictures on a cotton-based canvas last long. Whereas, in the case of polyester, the ink remains on the surface and does not get absorbed—this way, synthetic canvas imprint provides more vivid and bright prints. The latter is also more affordable. Therefore, you can choose what type of canvas composition is more suitable for you. One can be flexible with the choices. Adding canvas prints to your household will provide a unique look to it. These prints get adjusted easily with other decorations at your house. They are easy to handle, lightweight, and pocket friendly.
