This aubergine silk shawl features a devore pattern of flying birds and wild animals, infused with metallic fibers for a subtle shimmer. The velvety ornament is obtained by burning away viscose fibers. This shawl combines contrasting textures, draping elegantly around the shoulders. .

Velvet devore fabric is a eye-catching protein- and cellulose-based cloth, which visual effect is reached by applying a special gel on a back side that dissolves away the cellulose, leaving behind only protein-based fibres. The gel is applied in patterns in two ways: by either printing or hand painting. Developed in the end of the 19th century as a cheaper substitute to lace, devore fabric has gained a great popularity over the years, and is associated with the most opulent evening attires these days.
The most exquisite velvet devore comes from Carnet, Bouton-Renaud, Redaelli and Ostinelli - the destinguished French and Italian brands, regularly supplying prominent fashion houses.
