velvet-fabrics

The word “velvet” comes from the Italian word velluto, meaning “shaggy.” The nap of the fabric is relatively flat and smooth, which is a good material for the clothing, curtains sofa covers, etc. Velvet used to only refer to the material made of pure silk, but nowadays many other synthetic fibers join the production which greatly reduces the cost. There are 7 different velvet fabric types, based on the diverse materials and woven styles:

Crushed Velvet

Panne Velvet

Embossed Velvet

Ciselé

Plain Velvet

Stretch Velvet

How to cut Velvet?

Easy shedding and pilling are one of the shortcomings of velvet fabric because velvet will form short fur in the process of production and processing, traditional cutting velvet fabric by the yard such as knife cutting or punching will further destroy the fabric. And velvet is relatively smooth and loose, thus it is difficult to fix the material while cutting.

More importantly, stretch velvet can be distorted and damaged on account of stressful processing, which makes a bad impact on quality and yield.
