Everyone has seen those white reflective stripes in shots with flash. I wonder about comparing this fabric to that one used for softbox inside.

No, please tell more about those white reflective stripes so that I get an idea were you are talking about.

The stuff you're talking about isn't just a reflective surface, it has little balls and/or prisms that are super tiny to achieve retroreflection. It doesn't diffuse, it's directional. So if you made a softbox with this stuff inside, the light would quite literally bounce back to the source light and not diffuse out and around the light very well.

Very best,
