The canvas cotton is nearly twice as thick as standard cotton. Its dust repellant finish makes it particularly suitable for cushions and other objects that are often handled. Like standard cotton, it can be used for curtains, whose fall will be heavier then.
The fabric is sold by the decimeter (10 cm). Width is 150 cm. Therefore, one unit measures 10 x 150 cm.
With Rivi pattern – a finnish word meaning line –, french Bouroullec brothers evoques Alvar Aalto's art of mixing the irregular shapes drawn by hand with the geometrical rigor of repetition (see Siena pattern, for instance).
