September 2017: Variety In Velvet

Velvet is making a new fresh appearance in 2017. We love the luxurious look of velvet, paired with its soft and comfortable texture. Whether in a casual living room, or a formal gathering space – velvet is the perfect trendy, but timeless touch.

Velvet is not only a beautiful fabric it is also practical. Most velvets exceed the minimum 15,000 double rubs test by three or four times, making it durable and long lasting. The durability of velvet comes from its short, dense pile as well as its mixture of both synthetic and natural fibers. Along with the durability, velvet has an incredible color pay off thanks to its pile which allows you to choose from an array of deeply saturated colors.
