Scrim - Fabriclore

What is Scrim Fabric? 

  • A scrim is a woven material that may be either finely woven and lightweight or coarsely woven and heavy. Both of these types are often used in the theater, along with a heavy, coarsely woven cloth that is used to reinforce both buildings and canvas.
  • Although flax may be used to make textiles, it is far more likely that you will come across anything made of cotton.
