Do you find yourself scrolling thru your Pinterest feed and thinking to yourself “I’ve seen that photo before”? It can be hard to find new places to look for ideas and often just a photo alone with no explanation of what you are looking at can be more a frustration than an inspiration.

So, when we developed our online soft goods portfolio pages, part of the focus was not just to share the imagery – but to also offer a summary of what is in the image.  A short roadmap to describe what textiles we selected and how we used them.  It is a wonderful way to see the multiple uses that each material can have. Our focus is always on flame retardant materials that offer certification to US standards. You’ll find Sew What? custom drapes and soft goods featured in schools and trade show booths, at special events and at concerts worldwide. If you can dream it, we can sew it! Here is a sneak peak of what you can see online in our various portfolios.

Looking for Rock’n Roll Stage Drapery inspiration? – look no further than our Rock’n Roll Portfolio.

America – the home of legendary rock bands and so many of today’s pop stars. Rod Stewart, Foo Fighters, Don Henley, Sting; we have draped and masked stages for the best of them. While we tend to remember a concert in terms of the “set” and the “lighting and effects,” the draperies play an often invisible but integral role in how the show comes together. Giant painted stage backdrops set the scene, masking hides tech areas from the crowd, borders dress the floating trusses to hide the lighting instruments, and skirting surrounds the stage and band risers. Soft goods, as they are known to the “roadies,” are a major part of any touring set. From massive kabuki sniffer drapes for legendary band The Foo Fighters to mixed media crafted backdrop creations for Katy Perry, there is a little something for everyone in our Rock’n Roll Portfolio.
