ITE Cotton Molton is the most versatile fabric for situations where the fabric must be 100% opaque or as a cheaper and lighter alternative to wool. Roll widths are 3m allowing seamless curtains to be 3m drop without joins. This fabric is also ideal for seat coverings. The most popular weight is 300gsm however lighter weights used primarily for stage curtain lining is available. The fabric is also available in a variety of colours including chromakey green and blue. This fabric is chemically treated for fire retardancy. Note: Roll width is 3m.

This fabric is 100% cotton and is flame retardant to Australian Standards. This fabric is chemically treated for fire retardancy.
UV Resistant Blackout Lining
ITE Blackout lining is used in situations where the drapes may be facing a window and therefore requires UV protection from the sun. It also doubles to act as a complete light block. This is especially important for studios that require complete darkness. The fabric has a silky-satin side and a hard polyester side. This fabric is also ideal for cyclorama ‘socks’ as this fabric does not shed at all avoiding unwanted speckles being passed onto the main drape. This fabric is 100% polyester, weighs 280gsm and is inherently flame retardant to Australian Standards. No chemicals are used for fire retardancy. Roll width is 1.58m.
