Hi,
I am looking for a black background fabric known as duvateen in the UK. I believe it is the same material they use for my Arri flag..kinda fire-resistant, matt, a little bit fluffy and soft. I need highly light absorbent black background to shoot in a very small still photography studio. In a tight space, I am driven to become a spill control freak using eggcrates, softbox barndoors, flags to reduce spill onto backgrounds. At the moment, I use Colorama black paper which is not ideal. I heard black velvet is even more light absorbent than duvateen but expensive, very hard to get hold of in a large roll (besides more fabric supplies here only stock crushed black velvet which has shiny texture).
Any direction to where I can buy duvateen in the Uk will be appreciated. I have checked out several still and video grip and lighting suppliers in London, none of them stock it unfortunately.
