Lake Garda (Deluxe Plain Velvet) is a wonderfully soft and malleable fabric with a delicious drape. A more affordable version of velvet and in some ways an imitation velour looks and feels very similar to velvet however velour is made with a pile knit structure. The yarns, usually made from cotton or synthetic blends, are knit into tiny loops that form the fluffy pile.
Knitted, velour is traditionally stretchier than traditional velvet but thanks to developments in textile technology this is no longer the case and velour-velvet can be used for many applications, from upholstery to curtains and clothing.
Lake Garda is inspired by its namesake (the beautiful Italian lake and its dreamy blue-green waters). These calm water hues are extremely popular, especially if chosen for sitting alongside other jewel hues and our printed velvets.
These are Italian made luxury drapey velour-velvets, they are closely knitted in a super fine gauge. They are super soft, stable lengthwise but with a small amount of retentive stretch-in the width. A medium pile with a soft touch, it feels like silky moleskin and has a subtle sheen.
A reassuring medium-heavy drape provides luxurious style opportunities. The harmonious range of solid colours is the perfect accompaniment to our Deluxe Printed Velvets to create points of interest and to provide a break in otherwise busy schemes.
