Product Details

Deep black polyester and slate gray velour come together for a modern take on a mid-century pattern.
Capture the essence of previous eras with Westcott's Modern Vintage backdrop line.

Exclusive patterns.
Modern Vintage designs are customized by Westcott and exclusively-manufactured to purposely be large in size. This construction allows patterns to appear proportional to the subject of your photography.

Quality materials.
Westcott has been working with the best fabric mills worldwide for over 112 years. These quality fabrics are embossed in a thick velour to further ensure years of use.

Change the look and feel of Modern Vintage backdrops with simple lighting techniques. Low-key lighting mutes the background, while high-key lighting allows the pattern to appear vibrant in your images. Easily vignette your background with a background light (perfect for dramatic results).

Seamless design.
No need to worry about removing seams in post-production as all of Westcott's backdrops are seamless to ensure professional results.

Includes lint cloth.
Due to the thickness and quality used on our embossed velour, certain clothing that has a tendency to "shed" may leave lint on the backdrop. For this reason, all of our modern vintage backdrops include a free lint cleaning cloth specifically designed to quickly and easily remove unwanted lint.

Wrinkle resistant material.
We have carefully chosen our material to reflect a wrinkle resistant fabric. Simply hang your backdrop using the included pole pocket and the weight of the fabric will pull most unwanted wrinkles out right away. If heavy wrinkles still exist, simply steam the backside of the background paying special attention to not over moisten or "overheat" the embossed velour.

Reflection resistant.
Many embossed fabrics naturally have a reflection due to the manufacturing process. At Westcott, we have developed a system to remove unwanted reflections from this process leaving the background with a matte finish. This matte finish ensures perfect results when lighting the backdrop. Reflections can cause difficulty in lighting the backdrop, loss of background detail and unwanted highlights.
