How do we keep our theatrical fabric and stage curtain fabric prices so low?

There is one thing about us that you should know; we operate a “work-room” not a show room.

Instead of offering fancy sample cards and expensive four-color brochures, we ask that you request only those colors in the color palette that you are interested in and we will gladly send them to you!

We’ll work within your budget.

We’ll help you work within your budget. For example, did you know that Inherently Fire Retardant Encore Velour is a newly introduced theater curtain material that combines the rich look of velour with inherent fire resistance? So the higher cost of this fabric is offset by fact that it does not need to be re-treated in order to be considered a fire retardant curtain.

Additionally, you may not realize that Commando Cloth is a “lower cost” fabric which may be used for stage curtains in applications with restricted budgets – making it an excellent alternative to velour.

Questions? We welcome any questions about your theatrical drapery needs.

Read our FAQ’s and whitepapers about basic stage drapery specifications for more information, including standard curtain fullness, questions on webbing reinforcement, selvages, bottom hems and other related drapery questions.

Of course Sew What? is also happy to lend our expertise as part of your drapery purchase or in regards to providing a quote. To get started just call us at (310) 639-6000 or contact us for a free quote.
