Woven or knit, with thin ribbons of metallic yarns, Lame is easily distinguished from guipe where the ribbons are wrapped around a fibre yarn. Considered a hybrid fabric, Lame is produced from a combination of metallic fibers and polyester or nylon fibers. This fabric is not completely metal but rather metal coated plastic or yarn fibers are most common. Such a blend is ideal as the metal fibers will not tarnish.

Garments Designed with Lame Fabric

Lame fabric is typically used for glamorous garments that sparkle and shine in the light. You’ll see it used commonly for evening gowns and dresses, skirts and blouses, fancy trousers and pants, dance and theatrical costumes, lingerie and pajamas, and jackets and blazers. Anything that requires a bit of razzle dazzle will greatly benefit from lame fabric. 

Lame Fabric’s Shimmering Attributes

Lame fabric has many stunning advantages. Its shiny and reflective surface is one of its main draws, along with its unique patterns. It’s also versatile, lightweight, and comfortable to wear, making it a popular fabric choice for clothing that’s going to be worn often or that needs to be moved around in. 

Metallic Alternatives to Lame Fabric

If you want a shiny alternative to lame fabric, consider metallic knit fabric, metallic jacquard fabric, or sequined fabric. Think about the intended use, cost, and texture of the material you’re looking for when making a purchasing decision.
