Tram scroll canvas texture, 100% Cotton, Museum Grade

 

This close up of one of our tram destination rolls, it shows the quality of the canvas, we use 100% cotton canvas, intentionally maintaining a rougher feel to the canvas texture to maintain the vintage feel of the scroll. This cotton canvas helps the Bus roll to look and feel like an original vintage bus blind.

 

Every effort is made to make sure our tram and bus rolls are striking in every way. We use a font type that looks like the originals and our canvas is kept as raw as possible.

 

*Please note that our rolled / unstretched bus blinds are delivered with a unprinted white border so that they can be wrapped over a frame, if not required this can be hemmed or cut away.
