Cement Fabric
Concrete Cloth by Concrete Canvas is Named Material of the Year

{SummaryTitle}

Concrete Cloth is exactly what its name entails. It is a flexible fabric that has been ‘impregnated’ by cement (I’m just glad that the designers intend for it to be used for architectural purposes rather than for clothing!). 

Concrete Cloth was created by the UK-based company Concrete Canvas and was awarded Material of the Year 2009 by materials consultancy Material ConneXion. To form a structure, the pliable material is molded into the desired shape, then made to absorb water and allowed to set after two hours. Its fireproof and waterproof qualities make it beneficial for disaster relief as well as military and commercial environments.
