Fabric-mounted RagLite is ‘first-ever flexible LED light bank’

The RagLite is an LED with a few tricks up its sleeve, and could even be a sleeve, as it's made of fabric.


Wish your lighting was a bit more flexible — literally? Have a look at the the RagLite, a fabric-mounted LED light bank that is portable, waterproof, “virtually indestructible”, can hang anywhere and rolls up into your bag when you’re done.


A Chicago-based start-up called RagLite Technology is promoting the concept on Kickstarter, hoping to raise $25,000 (and a good deal of the way there, at the time of writing). There are umpteen variants of RagLite for any application, even those outside photography and cinema.

  • Original RagLite — 8″ x 8″
  • Mini — 4″ x 4″
  • Cine — 5600K or 3200K, 14″ x 12″
  • Cine Mini — like Cine but 6″ x 6″
  • Rugged — for industrial use, in case you might accidentally drive a car over it
  • Grow — for plant growers (but I don’t think they mean the clandestine ones above pizza shops)
  • RGB — with user-selectable colour temperature


Pledge perks start from $75 (for the RagLite Mini) ramping up to $250 for an original RagLite and much much more for the specialised models. Visit the Kickstarter campaign page to find out more.
