New Fabrics For July

We are happy to announce that we have added four new fabrics to our increasingly growing repertoire. The style of fabric is called Chenille Velvetine and is a 100% polyester Velvet material. It comes in Black, Brown, Claret, and Navy. It is heavy, soft, durable, and blocks out most of the light.

An interesting fact about the history of Velvet is that to date its origins are unclear, unlike many other popular fabrics where the origins are known.  “Scholars from all over the world have discussed and debated for many years. It is now a general belief this fabric, originally made of silk, arrived in Italy for the first time from the Far East, transported by Arab merchants, and was then spread throughout Europe, in turn, by the merchants from Lucca, Venice, Florence, and Genoa (TextileAsArt.com).”

Here are some High Definition pictures of the four new fabrics.
