Ripstop canvas or fabric is an acrylic treated polyester, woven using a reinforcing technique.This technique makes the material resistant to tearing and ripping. Ripstop is a very strong material.

RIPSTOP has been designed to deal with the harsh climatic conditions experienced throughout Africa, and will exceed your expectations in both quality and performance.

Ripstop Canvas UV stabilized feature makes it a perfect fabric of choice for use on products like tents and covers for exterior aesthetics.  Although it is labelled heavy-duty the fabric is lightweight but strong.


RIPSTOP CANVAS is made by weaving reinforcement threads in a crosshatch pattern with a thicker and stronger yarn acting as the ripstop yarn every 5 to 8mm.

Ripstop can be made from nylon-cotton blends (NyCo) or polyester-cotton (PolyCo) fabric. Because of its resistance to tearing and ability to withstand the elements, ripstop is a preferred material for outside use as well as military clothing.
