French translation:membrane
Explanation:
DROPLINER
The separate membrane is placed between the outer fabric and the lining. It offers designers complete freedom of choice in both the fabric and colour and therefore can be used in almost any existing garment design.
The system is used primarily where a soft handle and natural drape are required such as leisure suits, high fashion and country clothing. Can also be used in more rugged applications such as in the motorcycle industry as a waterproof layer between the hardwearing outer fabric and the padded liner.
