We have fabricated resonant terahertz metamaterials on free-standing polyimide substrates. The low-loss polyimide substrates can be as thin as 5.5 mu m yielding robust large-area metamaterials which are easily wrapped into cylinders with a radius of a few millimeters. Our results provide a path forward for creating multi-layer non-planar metamaterials at terahertz frequencies.
