Schmere is used by professional costume designers to age and distress the fabrics of clothes and accessories the actors and extras wear.
Some movie sets even use Schmere to put “schmutz” on fabrics which may appear on stage or film, such as rags, curtains or bedding.
The great thing about Schmere products is that you can get your wardrobe filthy without damaging the material. Schmere movie dirt washes out, unlike actual grass stains and embedded dirt. That’s why Schmere is one of the best distressing fabric techniques trusted in filmmaking.
