Concept

Lame cloth is an ultra-sheer new synthetic developed in 1990 by a major Japanese chemical fibre manufacturer. This cloth combines aluminium-plated polyester warps with polyester filament wefts (9-191). The woven fabric is then boiled in lye to dissolve the metalic components, leaving a transparent film (9-190). This process might seem rather extravagent, however this metal coating actually serves to suppress static electricity caused by warp-shedding friction during the weaving process a problem which had previously made fabrics this sheer, light and transparent virtually impossible.
