ALL ABOUT VELVET
Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed with a short dense pile. Therefore it gives it a distinctive soft feel. By extension, the word velvety means "smooth like velvet." Velvet can be made from either synthetic or natural fibers.
Velvet the most luxurious fabric can be made from several different kinds of fibers. Of course traditionally, the most expensive of which is silk. Much of the velvet sold today as "silk velvet" is actually a mix of rayon and silk . Hence the fabric made entirely from silk is rare. Therefore it usually has market prices of several hundred US dollars per yard.Cotton is also used to make velvet, though this often results in a less luxurious fabric. Velvet can also be made from fibers such as linen, mohair, and wool.
Sensually soft and closely associated with royalty, velvet boasts an exclusive history. It's safe to say velvet has been around for a while. There is evidence that Egyptians made this fabric in 2000 BC. Therefore we can see velvet throughout history until today.
