All of our burlaps are made from natural materials. This fabric is tough and durable enough for use in the construction and crafts. It can also be used as a weed barrier. Burlap can be used for backing for rugs, wall hangings, upholstery and decorative dollies. This material can be embroidered with fabric scraps, yarn, and other remnants to create wall hangings. It can also be employed with the ends sewn up for a rustic window treatment. Stretched over a frame it can be used as an alternative to canvas for painting.
