Poly Silk – Many clients love to use our 120” poly silk for light weight and translucent kabuki drops. When seamed up with minimal hems the wide goods give a fluttering effect when dropped. This textile is also used in the film and video industries as full artificial silk. When dye-sublimated the colors are bold and vibrant.

Pros: Light weight and translucent this is perfect for backlighting, dropping from solenoids as a kabuki drape or using as a back lit window dressing. We love the way this textile takes color, offering bold and bright saturation.

Cons: It is a delicate fabric and has a tendency to wrinkle if not folded or stored neatly. If you need a generic backdrop choose something more durable such as Artist Light.
