They can be made to individual specifications and are excellently crafted stretchers. The weave and tautness of the canvas are great to work on. They are also reliable and deliver to your studio. ” Colin Martin "I only use Milliken Bros' handmade linen canvases for all my pieces."    Vera Gaffney "I have been ordering stretchers from Milliken Brothers for years. They will make them bespoke to exact dimensions supplied, nothing is too much trouble. They are extremely accommodating, polite, competitively priced, will invoice in either euro or sterling, do not over charge on carriage, deliver on time and supply a great product. Why would I want to go anywhere else? I have recommended them to many people over the years and will continue to do so”.

They are the best bespoke stretched canvas suppliers on the island, in my opinion. Old school gentlemen, courteous and professional, nothing is ever a problem. They are consistent, reliable and accommodating when handling orders, and are very well priced for the product and service they provide. The wood in the stretchers is well-seasoned, sturdy and never warps. Stretchers are precision constructions and the linen stretched cleanly and evenly. The pegs with a gentle tap will restore any tension lost through atmospheric change or handling of paint. The oil priming is excellent and the paint takes beautifully. Milliken organise a delivery service and the cost is very reasonable. The canvases arrive well packed and always in perfect condition. Painting may mean many things to many painters, but the common thread that unifies us is the craft that is central and time-honoured to the practice. It is so reassuring that both for practical ease and for posterity I am using from Milliken the best possible materials available. Once the canvas is on the easel, I can relax momentarily, confident I am making the best start. Milliken have provided me with a fine canvas - now the hard work begins”. James Hanley RHA
