A scrim is a very light textile made from cotton, or sometimes flax. Their lightweight and translucence means it is often used for curtains. The fabric can also be used for bookbinding and upholstery.

Scrims have also seen extensive use in theatre where they are often used for special effects. In theater a scrim can refer to any such thin screen and are made out of a wide variety of substances. The advantage of scrims is that with certain they can appear opaque to the audience until a quick change in stage lighting makes them almost fully transparent.
