Each Floorcloth starts as a roll of heavy weight natural canvas. It is then cut and hand shrunk. The blank can then be made by creating a 2 1/2” back hem with stitched mitered corners to ensure structural integrity and a flat-laying rug. Next come the five layers of primer and base paint, which is a marine-grade acrylic (used for durability and flexibility). Once cured, the design process occurs. With final design touch-ups complete, we can begin applying the five layers of clear marine-grade finish, curing thoroughly between each coat. With the final coat completely dry, we then give the edge of the back hem a clean cut and insert the removable non-skid pad which helps keep the floorcloth in place as well as feels nice under foot. Throughout the entire construction process there is no adhesive used. Any adhesive will breakdown long before the life of the floorcloth. Recommended for indoor use.
