Velvet Fabric

Velvet is a sumptuous fabric with a short thick pile which is extremely soft to the touch. Once this extraordinary cloth was reserved for royalty, but today it is often seen on the catwalks and in our wardrobes. It is usually woven as a double cloth, and the nap is then cut with a blade along the warp. Velvet can be made of different fibers and blends: silk, cotton, rayon/viscose, etc.

Velvet fabric is a perfect choice for evening wear. It adds an aristocratic touch and a shot of glamour to any look. There are many kinds of velvet that differ both in feel and character: silk and viscose velvet, cotton velvet, stretch velvet, crushed velvet as well as velvet devore.

Velvet loves to be mixed and matched with lighter textures. Pairing it with plain or printed silk satin, chiffon or crepe de chine is always a winning combination.

Velvet Devore Fabrics

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.
