IBENA's best-selling product is the black CO STAGE MOLTON, article 9715. Every year IBENA supplies fabrics all over the world, because here it depends on a deep black, a good opacity and a beautiful surface. This makes the IBENA CO STAGE MOLTON an irreplaceable accessory on every stage in the world to quickly and inexpensively unify the background of the stage.
But IBENA CO STAGE MOLTON is not only a hit in black – in grey it is very often used for back tensioning of digital prints and in the form of a blue or green box as a background in film studios. Meanwhile, our CO STAGE MOLTON is available in many variants, not only made of 100% cotton, but in combination with viscose and polyester (see also in the section GRS-Molton).
All Molton out of cotton have in common that they are flame-retardant in compliance with B1, but this finish is not permanent. When the textile gets wet the flame protection might wash out, or the cloth will get stained. We recommend to use IBENA CS MOLTON, article 9000 to prevent this. IBENA CS MOLTON is made of flame-retardant fibres, and the B1 test was certified even after ten laundering processes.
Not all molton fabrics are alike: IBENA CO SATIN MOLTON, article 9760 is woven from a very fine yarn, and only one-side is raised. The fine yarn makes a very opaque fabric with an evenly raised surface. But also the backside of CO SATIN MOLTON is a sight to see: it has a slightly glossy structure and deserves to be called “SATIN MOLTON”.
The cheapest and simplest way to cover the front of a stage is to tape on the Stage Skirt fabric, which is already at exactly the right height of a stage. The Stage Skirt rolls are cut from black or white CO DECO MOLTON, article 9784, which weighs 160 gsm and is flame retardant. It is cut to the typical stage height of 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 cm and can be easily torn off by hand. With double-sided adhesive tape, any stage is quickly covered! Each stage skirt roll is 60 m long and the tolerance in height is less than +/- 1 cm.
