Canvas

Canvas is an extremely durable plain-woven fabric used for making sails, tents, marquees, backpacks, and other items for which sturdiness is required. It is also popularly used by artists as a painting surface, typically stretched across a wooden frame. It is also used in such fashion objects as handbags, electronic device cases, and shoes.

Actually streching canvas to use for art isn't hard at all! It's fairly simple, and it is less expensive to purchase your own untreated canvas in large quantities and by your frames (or as the lady in the video refers to them as: strechers) and strech it yourself!
