These fabrics are used for displays and fancy dress costumes including Elvis and Abba themed parties, space themes, or to add some glamour to an occasion such as a Christmas party. You can see a picture of a cloak and hat in the silver.
We also usually have a green/blue shade which customers have used for water effect displays, mermaids' tails and similar which will hopefully be coming back into stock soon...
The fabric is polyester and whilst it will last for years on display and make beautiful backdrops to brighten up a room or special occasion, it isn't suitable for long term clothing wear as it isn't machine washable, it's more of a fun fabric for occasional use.
Ideally it should be carefully washed by hand to prevent the gold or silver foil surface from being damaged.
The width is 115cms/45 inches.
