This is a 100% cotton backdrop made from a loose weave pattern with relatively thick thread. This initial size of the fabric is 10×12′, but after heat treatment the actual size is approximately 9×10.8′. Prism Backdrops by Ravelli are offered in three standard sizes:
10X20′ (actually 9X18′, 5.7lbs)
10X12′ (actually 9X10.8′, 3.8lbs)
6X10′ (actually 5.7X9′, 1.9lbs)
The material is 100% cotton which can wrinkle significantly. 100% cotton offers very good photographic results, but some combination of hanging, spraying, ironing, steaming and/or photo editing may be necessary to deal with wrinkles and shadows.
100% cotton is also heavy and is a woven material. The weight can be excessive for some background stands. And the weave pattern can allow a certain amount of bleed through from background lighting. Prism Backdrops attempt to achieve the best possible balance of weight and light handling characteristics for the photographer.
All sides are stitched to avoid unraveling and a 3.4″ rod pocket is sewn into the top. Each backdrop is folded and comes in a plastic bag to avoid moisture and stains and then each bag is packed in a cardboard box for shipping.
