Velvet is a luxurious fabric made from silk, cotton, or synthetic fibers. It has a dense pile of evenly cut fibers, a distinctive sheen, and a smooth, plush texture. It is commonly used in fashion for clothing items such as dresses, blazers, and pants, as well as in home decor for upholstery, curtains, and decorative pillows. Cotton and micro velvets are ideal for a luxurious and elegant look, while panne or crushed velvet are perfect for a textured appearance. Elevate your style by adding velvet to your home or wardrobe. You can buy velvet fabric by the yard to accommodate any project goal you may have.
Velvet is a luxurious fabric used in both apparel and decor. Velvet that is used for apparel is lightweight, soft, and plush with a lustrous sheen and nice drape. Apparel velvets include: micro velvet, stretch velvet, crushed stretch velvet, and panne velvet. Upholstery velvets are thicker and have a stiff backing, so they won't drape as well. They aren't as shiny as many apparel velvets, but they have a nice luster and feel. Watch the video to find out more.
