Never said anything about near an open flame. No issues here with that. Doesn't even factor into the equation.Terrible idea... Have you ever seen sailcloth near an open flame? The resins in the finish on woven cloths are flammable. POOF! Lotsa flames and then it’s gone...
Insurers and fire departments would not be impressed.
Worked in a sail loft many moons ago, unfuckingbelievable how many Suzy Homemakers dropped by with the most fabulous idea to use sailcloth for interior or exterior decor. Told ‘em they were freakin’ crazy and why, then sent them packing.
