Rear curtains are the part of the masking curtains located in the background of the stage.
Often made of black velvet or black stage fleece, rear curtains are used to hide elements behind the stage that could interfere with the show (window, wall, backstage, passage of off-stage actors or technicians, etc.). It can also be used, for example, to frame a backdrop or a cylorama.

The sides of our stage curtains are often finished with hems and the bottom is embellished with a leaded hem (or weighted hem) for an aesthetic finish.
But since we make all our curtains to order, we can offer you all kinds of finishes: knots, grips, pockets for hanging poles or weighted poles...
What about the fullness of your curtain?
Most of the time, a rear curtain is made flat, i.e. without fullness. But if you want your rear curtain with pleats, no problem - we can make it.
