KM premium velvet and velour drapery fabrics

KM Fabrics is a leading manufacturer of fabrics for theatre and stage curtains, wrapped panels and drapery. Our velvets and velours are made in the USA and we back these fabrics with attentive customer service. We offer more than 50 standard colors and custom color development with short lead times.


Our fabrics meet or exceed industry performance and flammability standards, as well as color and lightfastness standards. These fabrics have excellent opacity and sound absorption, with a rating of “best” for Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC).


We have no per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) in our drapery products. Studies show that exposure to some PFAS may be harmful to humans and animals, so KM is proud to be PFAS-free.

This certification ensures consumer and client confidence in the user-health and safety of our product.

Fabric care and cleaning

Dry clean our 100% IFR polyester drapery fabrics as often as necessary. Flame retardant treated material (100% cotton) should be dry cleaned for worst-case situations, such as high humidity, extremely low humidity or unusual amounts of dust.


These conditions can affect the flammability of stage curtains over a period of time. Cotton stage curtains will need to be retreated after dry cleaning.


You can make sure your stage curtains require less frequent dry cleaning. Vacuum lightly with a soft brush and keep the stage and surrounding area as clean and dust-free as possible.


Remember that atmospheric conditions can reduce the effectiveness of flame resistance. Our fabrics should last for many years, but fabric performance may vary based on environmental conditions. We recommend annual field testing.
