SourceTek Canvas Rolls Claessens Factory in Belgium

You probably already know that Claessens® produces  only the highest quality hand-primed linen and cotton. and that each roll goes through several processes to create a flawless finish.  But did you know that Claessens® manufactures more than 40 different canvases? 

SourceTek orders specialty canvases in limited quantities.  We are pleased to extend this offer to you.  This is your opportunity to order canvases you would like to try, or perhaps use on a regular basis.  Please note that since we do not stock all canvases listed here, we will not be able to offer these rolls by the yard. 

Ordering from Claessens® is pretty routine for us.  We have been doing it for more than twenty years.  Planning is key.  Not only do we have the manufacturing to take into consideration, but we also have to plan for the 6000 miles the order must travel to get here.

That being said, it can take up to 12 weeks for orders to be received from Belgium once we place our next order.  Please take the extra time into consideration when placing your order.  (As always, we will not process your credit card until we have received notification that the linen has shipped from Belgium.  At this point it is not eligible for return.)
