Scrim material is a lightweight woven cotton fabric used for stage effects. Often used to hide actors or stage props for a big reveal, scrim fabric can present virtually any kind of light diffusion dependent on stage effect to a live audience.

Scrim fabric is effectively see-through when lit from an oblique angle, but appears solid when lit from the front. Scrim fabrics are favored among art directors, set designers, and professional photographers for their soft diffusive qualities. Chicago Canvas & Supply stocks three varieties of scrim fabric to match your theatrical production needs: Theatrical Gauze, Sharkstooth Scrim and Leno Filled Scrim.
