English term or phrase:buckram
Definition from textileconnexion.com: A stiff , open weave, coarse fabric often used as an interlining to give a garment shape. Also used in hats, bookbinding.
As buckram is usually only used for the stable under-structure of cloth-covered hats, it can easily be covered with straw, leather, or felt in imitation of hats made out of those materials. Therefore, an ability to make buckram hats also allows you to "fake" leather, felt and straw hats for the stage. costumes.org
A buckram bandeau is the simplest object you can make out of hat wire and buckram, yet it has many uses as a basis for costume hats. It is therefore a good beginning project to learn about making buckram and wire hat forms, yet it also can give you a form over which you can make several rather fancy looking hats. The Costumer's Manifesto
Highly durable, acid-free, library-quality canvas, buckram is available in 20 different colors. Buckram is coated with a layer of vinyl, meaning this material can be cleaned with a damp cloth. When selecting your choice of buckram, please note that gold and silver can "wash out" on the lighter colors. Roullet Bookbinders,Inc.
