Lame Fabrics

Lame is a striking material that’s woven with thin ribbons of metallic yarns. Its glossy finish catches the light, and gives a sense of movement to its application. Once upon a time Lame was a favourite fabric for futuristic TV costumes but nowadays its more commonly used for evening attire, theatrical costumes and backdrops.

Made from polyester it reflects light brilliantly and comes in either silver or gold. Elvis Presley is a famous example of showing off Lame’s qualities, with his 1950s gold-leaf tuxedo being produced out of gold Lame. It’s ideal if you’re wanting to add a touch of glitz and glamour to a stage or theatre venue. At Whaley’s we stock Lame in three different styles, Micro Dot, Classic or Mirror in either silver or gold.

These are all available on a shade card on request if you’re unsure which type would be best suited for your requirements. As an alternative you can find out more information on these ranges or any of our other stage fabrics by filling out our contact form or giving us a call.
