If a tight production budget is an issue and opacity isn’t a requirement, you might want to take a closer look at our 12oz Duvetyne Fabric. Stocked in various widths and sold by the yard, Duvetyne is one of most economical masking fabrics employed by stage scenarists. Ideal for blocking out unwanted light and typically used for stage skirting or as a black background; Duvetyne fabric is 100% cotton, flame retardant and offers a brushed matte finish with a light absorbing quality. Chicago Canvas and Supply carries Duvetyne material in white, silver, grey, black, wine and royal blue. If you need something a little heavier than 12 oz. Duvetyne, check out Chicago Canvas’ selection of Commando Cloth.
