When sourcing canvas fabric for use with or around the general public, it is best to go for a durable and trustworthy, treated, fire retardant fabric. Our KBT extra wide calico fire retardant fabric measures 300 cm wide. This larger width is most popular for large scale projects. We use Proban to coat our fabric to BS5867 Type 2 part B safety standard. Proban is a registered trademark, any fabrics treated with Proban must meet part of the licensee agreement which means fabrics are made to last and are put through a vigorous test for their wash durability.
Most public events like food and drink fairs or music and arts events usually need to be checked by health and safety officials. Using fire retardant fabric is often expected in these situations. The larger width, strength and durability of this fabric makes it perfect for use with event designs. You can drape the fabric or cover a large space without having to sew seams and joins in the fabric. Theatre props could also benefit from extra wide calico as the fabric can be painted on easily-to create backdrop scenery that will still adhere to health and safety regulations.
The versatility of this calico means it is ideal for both creative and practical uses. Easily make fitted or lose table covers, curtains, partitioning and banners for private functions such as weddings and parties or public events like the increasingly popular craft fairs and food markets appearing in towns up and down the country.
You have the option of keeping the traditional look of the cream fabric or customising it by dying or painting your own colourful designs.

Please Note: The visual appearance of fabric and colour may vary on screen between monitors due to the different screen colour settings;
The actual fabric appearances, textures, colours and quality of your fabric may not be as what you see on screen, the dyeing process between fabrics vary due to way the fabric has been woven, constructed or treated. Another factor is the type of yarn used (coarse or fine), these are key factors to consider when choosing the right fabric for your project.
We recommend you order actual fabric samples of the fabrics you are interested in. With samples you will be sure of the fabric shade, texture, quality and the fabric feel, also you will know if it is the right fabric for your application.
Important Point to remember about your colour; i.e. RED may not be the same as our RED, this is the same rule for any colour, you must request fabric samples, we do offer free samples, simply call us to order them.
