The arrival of your “Made in the USA ” canvas is a very pleasant surprise! I purchased a yard of the 18oz canvas not even two months ago. I did so after having spoken with someone in your great customer service department. I was actually confirming where the canvas was from as I was looking for a 100% Made in the USA product for my bag line. I went with Big Duck because of the great customer svc. as well as the competitive prices. I will surely be back to your website to check on arrival of the 18oz canvas. Can’t wait!! Way to go!
