Made from the same fabric that is used for the pirate ship sails...  :P
...plus a coating to make it a little stiffer.

best,

This kind of material, at least in Argentina, is called "filter". There are many kinds and believe me.... it is not printable!  :lol: :lol:
And the paint I think is what gives it the extra stiffnes.  :)

I might have ruined one printer!  :shhhh:

The filters I found around here are good though for curtains. they look almost exactly as the mansion curtains except for the color. Colors are horrible.... so I tried dying them and printing them. Nothing worked. But I have tons of light blue curtains now pretty similar to the original ones :lol: :lol:

If it's the same as the curtains, would that be felt, I guess? I don't have a mansion, so I haven't actually seen the curtains in person, but they look like felt?
