Canvas Corp Fabric Shapes

Sewing operations in the USA are not very common these days, but at the turn of the century they were found throughout America.  Slowly things began to change. The consumer preferred readymade clothing over handmade clothing, raw material sources began to disappear,  production moved to other countries, and lower costs became the most critical factor for consumers to decide.

Today, sewing in the USA is trendy and on the rise.  Canvas Corp Brands is a working sewing operation where handmade things are really handmade.  Every piece of canvas is rolled out, the patterns are hand-drawn, the fabric is cut and they are sewn one piece at a time.

One of our favorite things that the Canvas Corp Sewing Team makes are Canvas and Burlap Fabric Shapes.  What is a fabric shape?  They are 2 pieces of fabric, cut out of cotton canvas or jute burlap, and then sewn together leaving the edges exposed giving them a chic, rustic look. They are cut into a variety of different shapes.
