Coated canvas in Naples

Cotton, linen and polyester canvas rolls

TELARTE s.n.c. is deeply specialized in coated canvas in Naples. The company manufactures canvas for painters for every type of need, with carefully elaborated recipes and top quality working procedures. The coating process consists in the application of a chemical substance on the fabric, in order to make it suitable for the fine arts, using specific fabrics and compositions for each use. TELARTE s.n.c. exclusively uses its own chemical substances and keeps the recipes secret. The company manufactures many types of canvas made of coated:

  • Cotton
  • Linen
  • Mixed linen
  • 100% polyester for digital prints, with opaque or lucid finishing
  • Mixed cotton and polyester

TELARTE s.n.c. shares its knowhow with its wholesalers and artists who need customized supports, offering a wide range of canvases rolls or stretched canvas, also in customized formats. The company offers the right frame for every application, fitting the needs of the artists who use oil paints or acrylic colours, providing them with the best tools for special techniques, ranging from finely-woven to coarse-woven canvas with universal black or white background, with primer or other special preparations. Depending on the needs and type of final use, the canvases may be manufactured with different types of fabrics. The final product has a different thickness, grain and absorbing power depending on the painting technique and has also a different weave and warp. The catalogue of the company offers many price ranges with cheaper and more expensive solutions. Among the latter we include the linen canvases, which, unlike the cotton ones, are more resistant to the use, the weather conditions and the tractions. In addition to having a very thick weave, which is the reason why they are so humidity resistant, the linen canvases have a very fine weave, which is especially suitable for the portraits. The high traction resistance, furthermore, offers a huge advantage if you are painting a large artwork. A typical feature of mixed cotton and polyester canvases is instead their excellent elasticity, combined with a good traction resistance which facilitates the procedure to stretch the canvas on the frame and assemble it.
