This is a 100% cotton backdrop made from a loose weave pattern with relatively thick thread. This initial size of the fabric is 6x10’, but after heat treatment the actual size is approximately 5.7x9’. Prism Backdrops by Ravelli are offered in three standard sizes:10X20' (actually 9X18', 5.7lbs)
10X12' (actually 9X10.8', 3.8lbs)
6X10' (actually 5.7X9', 1.9lbs)
The material is 100% cotton which can wrinkle significantly. 100% cotton offers very good photographic results, but some combination of hanging, spraying, ironing, steaming and/or photo editing may be necessary to deal with wrinkles and shadows.
100% cotton is also heavy and is a woven material. The weight can be excessive for some background stands. And the weave pattern can allow a certain amount of bleed through from background lighting. Prism Backdrops attempt to achieve the best possible balance of weight and light handling characteristics for the photographer.
All sides are stitched to avoid unraveling and a 3.4" rod pocket is sewn into the top. Each backdrop is folded and comes in a plastic bag to avoid moisture and stains and then each bag is packed in a cardboard box for shipping.

This company has some of the best customer service I have ever encountered...Ever!! I purchased black and white backdrops and left the review below; a couple years later I got a message from them thanking me for input and to let me know that they took all of the feedback k in to account and used that information to redesign their backdrops!! They sent me a black and white backdrop of the new design. To see what I thought. Upon opening the package, you can tell instantly that it is far better! The material is thicker and softer. It no longer has the crisp feeling it did before. It doesn't wrinkle and it is much thicker. All in all I would say they did a good job revamping their product!! Now I wish they had more color options because I would buy more!!!
great price and bag - thinner material than expected
really great price and love the bag it comes with which includes a vinyl see through window so you know which color is in which bag. The only thing I would say is that it is much thinner fabric than I thought it would be and is see through. I also bought the black one - so I hang the black first and then the white on top which makes it look slightly grey but also makes it thicker.
UPDATE AS OF 02/15/16
On my original review, I mentioned that the backdrop had a stain on it. Within a week, the company called me and offered to give me a new stain free backdrop). Not a return, not an exchange; just a free backdrop. They simply let me keep the stained backdrop and gave me another one. I was very pleased with that and thought it was very nice of them to do so and quickly as well. The replacement was free of stains and I had no issue other than the wrinkles, but honestly, it's not that big of a deal.
All in all, a good deal for the price and I did buy it in black and love that one as well!
When it came in packaged I decided to wash it - probably shouldn't have done that, because once it finished and I dried it in the dryer, boy was that thing more wrinkled than ever!
I had to use a steamer to get wrinkles out, but even then the wrinkles still stayed in a little bit until I held the cloth with some muslin clips. Then the wrinkles practically disappeared.
This backdrop however, does indeed turn a pure white when properly exposed. You'll most likely need to have at least a 2 light setup, with the backlight 2 stops higher in order to flush out the background, but it is possible.
Even when I was using an AlienBees B800 with a 64" Plm Extreme Silver with Diffusion Fabric, I was able to flush out the background and still manage to keep my subject well lit.
Yes, the initial wrinkles of the fabric does take time to remove, but for 34 dollars it's not exactly gaberdine.
As far as see through goes, I've uploaded a couple pictures to show that the fabric is not really see through. My definition of see through is that if I can clearly see someone moving in the back and it shows in the picture, it's not usable. Yes, if you have a light in the back, say, a lamp light or ceiling light, it will show through, however when you take a picture with a strobe, it does not affect the picture at all.
Tips for removing the wrinkles:
Wash it then hang it out to dry
When placing it on the backdrop, use clamps to keep it taut on the pole. You would probably need 3 at most (1 on each of the ends and one in the middle) to keep it up, and 2 if you only have 2.
Finding a wrinkle free fabric this size is a bit hard, but for this price I had already expected this, so I give it a 4 stars.
