Cotton duck – or simply duck, sometimes duck cloth or duck canvas,
commonly called in.canvas in. outside the textile industry, is a heavy, plain woven cotton fabric.
Duck fabric is woven with 2 yarns together in the warp and a single yarn in the weft.
Cotton duck is a weighty, plain-but-strong woven canvas. Despite its name, this hardy
workwear fabric has nothing to do with waterfowl or their feathers.
The term in.duck in. comes from the Dutch word doek, which refers to a linen canvas once used for
sailors’ white trousers and outerwear. The word in.cotton in. has been added to modern duck items simply
to distinguish them from traditional linen duck. Interestingly enough, though, cotton duck is related to
another type of work-ready duck. Duct tape, often called “duck tape”, was originally manufactured by
adding an adhesive backing to regular cotton duck.
