Westcott offers many styles and colors of quality backgrounds that offer quick set-up and takedown for versatility and easy portability. Westcott has both Collapsible Illuminator Backgrounds and sheet backgrounds. Both of these styles come in hand-painted muslin and Chroma-Key fabrics.
Westcott offers the following suggestions when you purchase the hand-painted muslin backgrounds. They are hand painted with an acrylic-based paint. They are not flame retardant and should not be machine-washed or dry-cleaned. Westcott does suggest a light coating of a fabric protectant spray be applied before the first use to aid in keeping the backgrounds clean and also helps to aid in the paint from rubbing off onto your hands when you hang it (this is normal and will eventually diminish).
Westcott offers washable muslin sheet backgrounds in 2 sizes. The backgrounds are ideal for photographers to withstand applications that involve pets, sports or kids. The backgrounds are machine washable in a large washing machine. Tumble dry on medium setting and remove at once from dryer when dry.
