where can I buy raw canvas in Zurich?

I build my own frames for my paintings but can't find canvas which is un-gessoed. Does anyone know if I can find some in Zurich? Raw canvas, no gesso. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't know if they have it on the German side, but on the French side I go to Jalluet. Major chain and they have all different grades of raw canvas at ok prices. Looked specially for this as painted a pic for my husband's bday.

Had a look at your website - love your use of colour! Very vibrant, and interesting art.

Sorry, I read your thread title as "Where can I buy raw canabis in Zurich" .....

There is a fairly large art store on Rennweg (just off of Bahnhofstr). The name is zum Stein, IIRC. Half of the third floor is just canvasses.

Ninjela-

Hit the one up in Lausanne - that's where I got my stuff and they are very friendly as I think they get many art students from the university.

Good stuff, Boesner, we have bought tonnes of stuff there in Germany and the OH will be cheered up no-end to know that she can get her canvas and acrylics in Suisse too I don't suppose that the German account will be recognized in Switzerland? Probably not, not a big deal, we'll just open a Swiss one...
