The Rag Place is an industry leader in the manufacture and supply of set lighting technical fabrics for the motion picture, television and theatrical industries. We staff two production floors, and have one of the largest rental inventories in Hollywood.
We've assisted many design and production teams on a wide range of projects facing critical creative, technical and budget considerations. Recent collaborations include working with crew leaders and visual effects experts on Avatar, Hugo, Surrogates, and Thor. We've constructed a 70' x 350' exterior blue screen wall for Gangs of New York and full-stage three-wall coved ceiling bounces for The Terminal. Other complex solutions can be seen vividly brought to life on the sets of 300, Minority Report and the ongoing franchises for Spiderman, The Matrix and Iron Man.
We pride ourselves on innovative, groundbreaking ideas like KNOCKOUT® Blue and Green Screens, ULTRABOUNCE® Fabric, GELFAB® Color Correction Fabrics, SNAPGRID® Light Directional Tools and our exclusive line of fire retardant blue and green screens. Innovation takes a consistent commitment of time and effort, yet, it’s an essential piece of the puzzle if you want to move forward. Our continuing product development ensures an extraordinary range of motion picture technical fabrics, blue and greens screens and color corrections fabrics. This dedication to providing visionmakers with the best tools possible is an integral part of our mission statement.
All of our products are subject to testing and go through our Photometric Testing process, including our own developed testing, “The Wrap Factor™” technology so that our clients' crucial decisions on or off set can be made with confidence.
Pasquale ("Pat") Caputo, President, established The Rag Place more than twenty years ago. With family in the textile business in New York, and an early career in film production, commercials, features, and tv, he combined these two disciplines to identify exciting new solutions for on-set lighting and light-modifying fabrics.
Our staff includes a team of knowledgeable fabricators, an awesome sales staff, and an administrative support staff with many years of experience in meeting the needs of the fast-paced businesses for whom we provide solutions. We look forward to working with you on your next project!
