Wine Cotton Velvet -1 Metre
Traditionally associated with nobility ,the earliest velvet was produced in Bagdad in the 13th Century before the technique was adopted by Italian weavers in the 14th Century.
It was these weavers of Genoa, Florence and Venice who introduced both colour and design in to the velvet fabric .
The earliest velvets are made of silk but today cotton is used to produce this soft, shiny and sleek fabric.
Velvet is mainly used in upholstery, for curtains and the weight of this velvet makes it ideal for garments such as dresses and jackets. It is also ideal for our NEW SANTA OUTFIT PATTERN , which is available on our website, in download form and pattern.
