Glitter

Glitter fabrics are glittery or sparkly fabrics, usually made by laminating the glitter flakes onto a fabric such as a polycotton drill fabric. The glitter makes up 100% of the coverage and these fabrics can be used for backdrops, window displays and interiors. Another way that glitter fabrics can be made is by applying a PU coating onto a woven polyester and cotton backing. This way means that a waterproof ‘leather effect’ fabric is created. Many different patterns and designs can be applied and these can be used for a range of purposes, such as belts, bags and shoes.
