“Cotton duck (from Dutch: doek, “linen canvas”), also simply duck, sometimes duck cloth or duck canvas, is a heavy, plain woven cotton fabric. Duck canvas differs from plain canvas in that the threads in the former are more tightly woven. There is also linen duck, which is less often used.
Duck is used in a wide range of applications, from sneakers to use for artists’ paintings to tents to sandbags.
Duck fabric is woven with two yarns together in the warp and a single yarn in the weft.”
