Cardinal Red inspired by the plumage of the Cardinal Bird and its spectacular red plumage, is a wonderfully soft and malleable fabric with a delicious drape. Lovers of rich opulent, stately reds and historic scemes will appreciate this stunning velvet.
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 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.

All images are taken using high-quality photography equipment. We are very keen to ensure that colour accuracy is the best we can get however, we do suggest ordering a "sample (12cm x 20cm)" first to make sure that this product is right for you.
If a sample (12cm x 20cm) is not sufficient, we suggest ordering 1 unit of 0.5m CUT LENGTH (half metre) for style ideas when planning new projects, wash testing & seeing a full pattern repeat.

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.
