tent cloth 02. This cloth was woven using cotton and the canvas of a WWII tent. The tent made in in Ottawa in 1944 by the CH Petch and Sons Co. The tent was taken apart seam-by-seam and then unwoven thread-by-thread.

This cloth was woven using alternating threads of light, medium and dark green cotton twisted with the tent thread. The various shades of green reference camouflage fabrics.
