What is Buckram?

Buckram is a stiff and crisp fabric typically made from cotton, linen, or a blend of fibers. It is commonly used as a stiffening material in various applications, such as hat-making, bookbinding, or garment construction. Buckram provides structure and support to the desired areas, allowing them to retain their shape. It is often used for creating hat brims, collars, cuffs, or bodices in garments, adding rigidity and definition to the design. Buckram can be shaped using heat or moisture and is available in different weights and finishes to suit specific project requirements.
