Deck Chair Canvas - Our 45 cms wide striped deck chair canvas is of a more substantial weave than our interior striped fabrics - specifically designed for re-covering deckchairs and directors chairs, our fabrics look equally good in the garden or on the beach.
We recommend tacking canvas on to your existing deckchair using upholstery nails - just use your existing canvas as a pattern for your new replacement - 1.5 metres is more than adequate for a traditional folding wooden deckchair -
See our Step by Step Video on How to Recover a Deckchair
Fabric widths may vary slightly and any occasional tiny discrepancies in the weave are due to the nature of the fabric - we do not sell seconds.
Please bear in mind that our Deckchair canvas fabric is 100% cotton with no synthetics, which means that they are not strictly outdoor fabrics. Modern dyes are used today which lack the toxic colour fasteners used in the past so they will fade quicker if left out in strong sunlight and adverse weather conditions.
In the heyday of the deckchair (1900 - 1950's) with no synthetic fabrics available, covers were replaced annually.
We opted for cotton deckchair covers because they are more comfortable and easier to replace.
In staying true to the original concept, we think that to protect your deckchairs in inclement weather is a small price to pay for a beautiful product
Pinks and reds are more vulnerable so avoid these if you wish your colours to remain brighter - please see our Deckchair Canvas FAQ's
The very nature of a deckchair was as an instant chair to sit in the sun - and folded away again when it rains!
Although substantial, our Deckchair canvas may not be suitable for heavy commercial use. Instead please see Polyethylene Deckchair Canvas
See our Buy Deckchairs page which is also our Deckchairs Gallery where you can see deckchairs covered in each deckchair fabric to help you choose!
Because our fabric is 100% natural cotton with no synthetics, the weave is constructed to slightly 'give' when first sat on. If tacked on tightly - the canvas will 'mould' to the shape of the body to give a more relaxed and comfortable seat. This is totally normal and the strength of the fabric is not compromised in any way.
