Art is intensely personal and that is why we offer so many different painting surfaces, easel designs, tools and sundries, giving the widest viable range of sizes and finishes. The iconic Loxley® Gold canvas was the first triple primed surface of its type. The company also pioneered the deep Chunky™ canvas and the clean edge, wrap around canvas. In consultation with artists using palette knives to apply the paint, Loxley developed curved-edge cross bars to prevent the old problem of unwanted ‘paint rub-lines’ appearing in the finished picture.



Quality canvases are an essential component of any painting, and it is crucial to invest in the best. Loxley has been dedicated to crafting top-notch canvases for artists for numerous decades. Whether you choose the renowned Gold range or the recently introduced Mayfair range, our collections cater to various mediums such as acrylic, oil, and mixed media. We take pride in providing artists with the finest canvases to bring their artistic visions to life.
