Discover the perfect canvas for your next artwork.

  • Medium Antique: golden (translucent)
  • Dark Antique: light brown (translucent)

2 Sizes Available:

  • 35" Width: 35" (88cm), sold by the yard(36" or 91.4cm) cut to a continuous piece per order
  • 13" Width: 13"(33cm) sold by the yard(36" or 91.4cm) cut to a continuous piece per order


Unique Qualities:

Our silk defies the norm. Unlike traditional Chinese silk, it will not wrinkle with wet painting techniques, eliminating the need for stretching on a frame or mounting on a board with tape. It’s a sized, non-bleeding fabric that ensures your artwork remains crisp and clear, though excessive moisture will penetrate through. We recommend placing a wool felt underneath while painting.


Adaptable to all water-based media, this silk is a favorite for artists using watercolor, acrylic ink, or liquid acrylic. The translucent nature of the silk allows artists to trace designs with or without a lightbox. Even the back side is paintable with gouache and opaque watercolors.

Special Thanks:

We extend our gratitude to Shay Wahl and Maribel Teklado for providing the beautiful painting samples showcased below.
