Stage velvets & mohair theatre curtains

Buyer's Guide Fabrics
Red velour curtains for theatres or events

Cotton, polyester and mohair velvet curtains are the most traditional flame-retardant fabrics for theatrical drapery. Manufactured as luxurious front theatre curtains and valences, borders, legs, and stage backdrops, they serve a decorative purpose on stage while benefiting lighting and sound conditions.



Cotton stage velvetsBlue Velours Theatre Curtains by ShowTex - Puccini

Velours is produced from cotton or synthetic materials, it can be custom-dyed to order and comes in a variety of weights.

The elegant flat-pile cotton velvets Puccini, Verdi and Bellini by ShowTex are available in a variety of colours. ShowTex now also offers a new budget range of 100% cotton velvets, including the medium-weight Velours Hamlet and the noticeably heavier Velours Atlas.

Italian red velours curtain made from Velours Paris CS and Helena CSPolyester or synthetic velours

Cotton velours are chemically treated to make them flame-retardant (FR) while IFR polyester velvets are produced using materials that are inherently and permanently flame-resistant.

The synthetic Velours Helena CS, Garnier CS, Paris CS and the new extra heavyweight Zeus CS by ShowTex have an upright pile, are 100% Trevira CS and were developed to be ultra-low maintenance.

These fabrics are more resistant to moisture, weather conditions, wrinkling and storage than cotton velvets. Choose from an extensive new range of pure colours.

ShowTex recently added the durable and cost-effective Velours Delta and Velours Bravo to its range of synthetic stage velvets. These velvets are extra wide and inherently flame retardant. They are wrinkle-resistant, medium-weight masking fabrics with minimal shrinkage, making them ideal for touring, outdoor venues and humid environments. Their unique structure and short pile guarantee a consistent, deep, matt black colour and high opacity.

Mohair velvets offer the most luxurious main house theatre curtains with maximum endurance and sustainability. Our heavy-weight Velours Gaudi and the even heavier Velours Palladio Mohair velvet are made of hair from the Angora goat combined with cotton, resulting in an extremely durable fabric with a long upright satin pile, good acoustic qualities and excellent colour clarity.

Take it one step further and give your Mohair theatre drapes their very own character by adorning them with your personal designs or patterns. Logos or custom designs can be woven right into our Velours Mackintosh, while our Velours Le Corbusier can be embossed with historic pressed velvet patterns.
