Fredrix was founded in NYC in 1868 by our founder E. H. Friedrichs. 152 years later, Fredrix canvas is still known for making quality canvas. We know exactly what goes into our products. All of our universally acrylic primed canvases are animal bi-product-free, and we NEVER have nor ever will test on animals. We use premium titanium and other ingredients to ensure you have the best possible painting experience.
