Being linen slubbing or lumps in the yarn will occur, as the fabric is used the slubbing or lumps in the yarn will move around and reveal un-printed areas.

Technical Information:

Velvet is woven on a special loom having two faces of the fabric together, which are then split in half to create the soft pile we feel on the textile. Our Velvet has been woven specifically for digital printing and as such has a beautiful dense pile and finish when printed. This distinctive fabric is ever-changing, the look, colour and texture of velvet will change depending on the direction the fabric is brushed, the lighting in a room, and the wear-and-tear it has undertaken.

Care Instructions:

You want to ensure Velvet is cared for and the pile is protected. You can do this by using your hand to brush the pile if creases are developing and gently vacuum if dust is forming in the pile. You should spot clean by dabbing to remove marks and avoid rubbing. Use light steam to pop out creases, never iron Velvet because you will flatten the pile. Our Velvet is made from high quality polyester to provide the most durable and luxurious textile.

  • Delicate machine or hand washed,
  • Dry flay
  • and you can dry clean.
