The fabric with metallic yarns is called Lamé. Metallic clothes were well famed in old Hollywood glamour but still today it is used for shimmer look.
Earlier metal yarns are used in combination with other fabrics in different proportions to make metallic fabric, but in recent times metal coated polyester or nylon is used instead of original gold, silver or copper thread.
When first produced, it was only available in gold, silver or copper colour, but now different shades are available.
Nowadays, metallic clothes are available at a much cheaper price as it has become more and more popular and is now more widely produced.
