Sometimes I use cheaper canvas, but this is the best I cam afford. There is even better, but the price becomes astronomical. I buy it in rolls and stretch it myself. It's 10 times tougher than cotton! If you want to pait like a master, get oil primed canvas like Rembrandt himself used- not the commercial plastic gesso primed stuff! This stuff is glue sized and double primed on the finest closely woven linen- not the more common cotton duck! If you want your paintings to last centuries- get this quality canvas.
