Coolabah Canvas is an Australian Made, fine weave, light weight, polyester/cotton blended tenting canvas finished with the Dynaproof process. This chemical increases the strength of the canvas while also increasing the weight from its loomstate (natural fibre) weight of 218 gsm to 275 gsm. The Dynaproofed™ chemical combines resistance against degradation caused from harmful UV, as well as resistance against bacteria, algae and fungi growth. This system allows the fabric to “breathe” as the woven base fabric is not sealed by a coating.
Coolabah Canvas has been specifically developed for the roofs and walls of family-style frame tents. Coolabah Canvas is recommended as a high quality solution for walling solutions in campervans – where a large amount of fabric is needs to be folded into a compact area. This canvas is tailored for very specific applications namely lightweight tent roofs & walls, awnings, flyovers and camper trailer walls and roofs.
We have been using the Coolabah Canvas Range within our personal industrial design company for the past 10 years. Commercial tents, shower curtains, upholstered furniture, satchel bags and car & bike protection covers are all examples of the various applications using the material.

About the Canvas:
Canvas is one of the earliest forms of industrial textiles – proving its use throughout the decades. Over the years the, traditional 100% woven cotton fibre has been blended with polyester mainly to increase the strength and longevity of the canvas. The fundamental concept of polyester/cotton canvas is to provide a breathable yet waterproof woven textile. Australia is renowned for having the best manufacturers for polyester/cotton canvas in the world. Rosebery Fabrics are fortunate to be representing these world class manufactures and offer the most comprehensive range of canvas products available to buy online.
By their very nature, woven fabrics are porous. This can be an advantage because it allows movement of air between the internal and external surfaces, minimising the likelihood of condensation and temperature difference. However the obvious difficulty is preventing water penetration. Coolabah Canvas is made water repellent by finishing the manufacturing process with a propriety proofing. This provides a hydrophobic film on the fibres, which has the affect of altering their absorption characteristics, thus preventing capillary action of seepage.
