Concrete canvas is a textile that could be simply described as concrete on a roll. You only need to add water and air and wait for hydration for it to form a thin ,hard layer that becomes water and fire proof. Florian Schmid has used this technology in his design “Stitching concrete” where he has stitched with fabric during the wetting down process to create a design from something raw within a short window of time due to the material hardening during the process.Previously this material has been used within construction of of both military and civil applications ranging from Canvas shelters , slope protection , pipe protection to weed inhibiting.
