What is Velvet Fabric?
Velvet fabric is a soft and sleek fabric that is commonly used in intimate garments, upholstery, and many other textile branches. In history, velvet was considered to be a symbol of aristocracy because it was quite expensive and challenging to produce velvet. The first time velvet was mentioned and recorded was the 14th century. Its initial production was most probably in East Asia with original pure Asian silk. Later, it was carried to Europe with the Silk Road and gained popularity, especially during Renaissance times. Back in the times, a unique process of production was used for velvet because it was difficult for velvet fabric manufacturers to weave with such a soft fabric. With today’s technology, since the machine looms were invented, velvet has become more affordable. In addition to the affordable price, nowadays velvet is woven with other types of fabric such as cotton, linen, mohair, and wool along with silk.
