13oz Crushed Velvet is a medium weight synthetic fabric that is full of texture and bright with lustre. Ideal where you want the draperies to "show" and reflect light, it not only looks but feels luxurious. While the overall effect is of a "heavy" fabric it is actually quite light in weight and therefore can be used for pipe and drape panels as well as residential style applications. It is best lined with a poly chintz for theatre applications. Note: this is not a good fabric for any theatre or stage masking application where you are looking for a light absorbant finish.
Consider using Crushed Velvet for Austrian Drapes, swags and home theatre curtains.
