A Few Facts about Velvets....

  • Newly made Velvets usually need time to condition in the atmosphere after unpacking to allow the pile to relax and lift,  improving the fabric's richness and lustre.
  • Velvet rolls must not be stored vertically on their ends, but need to be flat to avoid creases, which are diffficult to remove.
  • All Velvets should be 'Dry Clean Only' to maintain the pile's appearance.
  • It is impossible to prevent pressure marks in the Velvet, but these quickly disappear, once they are made up or hung.

And finally....Try brushing your hand downwards and the pile feels smooth, whilst brushing upwards, it feels rougher and the pile is disturbed. The 'pile up' gives a richer, deeper colour, whilst the 'pile down' gives a lighter, flatter colour appearance, as more light is reflected from the velvet.
