Velvet, also known as velour, has traditionally been used as the preferred fabric for main stage curtains / drapes. Velvet is produced from either natural or synthetic yarns and is available in a wide range of colours and weights.

In addition to providing a plush decorative cover for the proscenium opening, velvet has good acoustic and light block characteristics, thus velvet helps to block stage work lighting and deaden sounds of scene changing.

Black velvet is also used for stage masking where an "ultra-black&qout; effect is desired.

Flame retardant standard and heavy weight Velvets are available in NDFR cotton and IFR Trevira CS.
