Stage Molton

Stage Molton, also referred to as Duvetyne, was widely recognised as a material used for structuring theatre curtains and cycloramas in the 1930s. Before this, it was commonly used to produce dresses, suits and coats due to its similarity to twill and wool. It’s a light absorbing material that has a brushed finished on both sides which is not only perfect for a black out solution but for scenic purposes too. A great illustration of this, is the producers of the original Star Trek used glitter on a Black Stage Molton curtain to create the “exterior” shots of space.

Not only is it widely used for aesthetic values, for it is also well known for its sound eliminating properties. It’s crease resistant and its 10 year average life span makes it a viable solution for curtains, backdrops and masking applications such as borders and legs. Our Stage Molton is stocked in three different colours of white, black and royal blue and shade cards are available on request.
