A heavy, coarse, open plain weave fabric, buckram is usually made of cotton, linen or hemp, and is heavily sized. As an interfacing between the fabric and the lining of clothing, buckram is used to give structure to the garment, and it makes hat shapes and other accessories that require structured forms. Buckram is sometimes made by gluing two cotton fabrics together, then sizing as with the open-weave buckram.
Uses: Millinery, interfacing, bookbinding
