Velvet in Red (Cotton)
Traditionally associated with nobility, the earliest velvet was produced in Baghdad 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 into the velvet fabric. The earliest velvets were 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.

We sell our fabric in 10cm increments so that you can get exactly what you need. So, for example, if you wanted 1.8m of fabric you will need to select 18 units. Orders of more than 1 unit will be cut as one continuous length unless otherwise requested.
We work hard to photograph our fabrics in natural light or use our suppliers images but the colours you may see may still differ slightly to the original fabric.
