The ShowTex story began in 1983 with two adventurous young men pursuing excellence in stagecraft and light design. Their drive to develop and improve flame retardant soft goods and motion systems for the entertainment industry has turned into a worldwide organization providing a wide variety of services and high quality custom solutions.
We dream of the world as a stage where anything is possible with fabrics and we want to be the ones to make that happen. When our customers ask a question we want ShowTex to be the answer. We know that research and development alone won't accomplish this.
We also know that success is a state of mind. That's why we'll continue to take on each new project with passion and enthusiasm. This is the only path to creating products that provide real improvement to our customers. That way, they can focus on making their dreams come true.
ShowTex is a worldwide leader in inventing, manufacturing, selling, and installing the most innovative flame retardant curtain fabrics, tracks, and motion control systems for achieving the creative vision of event and entertainment professionals.

ALWAYS GOING ONE STEP FURTHER
At the ShowTex sewing workshops, custom curtains and fabric decorations are manufactured with high quality finishing and short lead times. In recent years, ShowTex confection specialists have perfected the art of producing giant glassless mirrors and projection screens with nearly invisible joints. An experienced installation team ensures that the curtains, tracks, and motion systems are ready when it’s time for the show to begin.
ShowTex has a complete selection of stage track systems and commercial drapery hardware. Curtain tracks and motion systems can be operated manually, motorized, or controlled by DMX. All track systems can be curved in-house to a custom or standard radius, to accommodate the most challenging designs, whether temporary or fixed installations. Along with stage design basics, ShowTex supplies an ever-growing range of made-to-rent products to offer even more flexibility.
The latest chapter in ShowTex’s path to innovation is a passion backed by a practical plan to better protect the environment. From incorporating accepted best practices into daily operations to environmentally friendly products and investigating recycling methods that will benefit theatres and planet earth, the company is once again breaking new ground.
Along with the budget priced DekoTaft and Satinac event fabrics, the Shakespeare, Molière, and Goethe velvets have already been awarded Oeko Tex 100 standard certification. More fabrics in the ShowTex range are in the process of being certified with this widely respected label, confirming fabrics are free from dangerous substances. Additionally, the newly developed ShowTex flame retardant Acoustic Baffle, made from 100% recycled material, provides an ecological solution for improving sound quality.
