Draping is something almost every show requires, whether you are hiding the backstage area or building trade show booths. Use drape as a mask to cover up parts of a venue, hide the backstage area or create a smaller area to have a more intimate event space. Black velour has been part of the event industry for years but don’t let it limit your event. Hughie’s has access to a wide variety of sizes and colors of velour for you to choose from. From Presidential Blue to Royal Purple, we can provide the color of velour that you are looking for.

From velours to voile, we can bring whatever fabric drape style you desire to the table. We have standard size panels for masking, tradeshows, stage and cart skirt, truss border and also scrims and cycloramas for backstage applications. We also carry a selection of sheer in different lengths and colors. Hughie’s also keeps a variety of scrims, cycs and tie on drape and border in stock. In addition to our traditional inventory, we do also carry fiber-optic curtain and can recommend other unique backdrop ideas for your next event.


Not all drape is created equal and we don’t purchase our panels from a local fabric and craft store. All of the drape that we use has been certified to be safe for use in public buildings with a fire-retardant rating. Most of the fabric we use is “IFR” or Inherently Flame Retardant or has been treated to ensure that it is compliant with current fire codes. Certificates are kept on file for all “FR” fabrics we use and are available by request.

We use drape for more than just simple walls or backdrops. Let our designers work with you to completely utilize our decor and lighting services for a truly custom look. Along with decor, Hughie’s offers staging, video and a wide variety of other event services. Please contact us with any questions about custom solutions.
