- BERLIN CANVASA matting fabric made from cotton for embroidery purposes. It is woven from coarse round yarns, weaving two ends as one and 2-picks in a shed, giving tiny squares as open spaces for the wool yarn with which it is embroidered. The original fabric (about 1820) was made of silk union yarns in white, black, claret and primrose colours. The threads had a strong cotton core with silk wound round it.
