What are its characteristics? Velvet has always been a popular fabric for traditional autumn clothes. Its luxurious temperament and rich texture create a magical fashion atmosphere. The velvet fabric is of heavier quality and is matched with delicate fabrics with contrasting effects, such as silk and lace, to create an extraordinary charm. Velvet, also known as zhang velvet, originated in Zhangzhou, Fujian Province, China. It uses velvet warps to form pile loops or piles on the surface of the fabric. It has been mass-produced in the Ming Dynasty and is one of the traditional Chinese fabrics. There are two types of flower velvet and plain velvet. Flower velvet cuts part of the pile loops into piles according to the pattern. The pile and pile loops alternate to form a pattern. The surface of plain velvet is all pile loops.
Velvet's fluff or loops stand tightly, have the characteristics of luster, wear resistance, and resistance to fading, and can be used for fabrics such as clothing and bedding. The velvet fabric is made of cocoon A-grade raw silk, silk is also used as warp, cotton yarn is weft interwoven, and silk or rayon is used for raising loops. Both warp and weft are first degummed or semi-degummed, dyed, twisted and then woven. According to different applications, different raw materials can be used for weaving. In addition to the silk and rayon mentioned above, it can also be woven with different raw materials such as cotton, rayon, viscose, polyester and nylon. So the velvet fabric is not really woven with velvet, but its hand and texture are as smooth and shiny as velvet.
Velvet is the name of the silk fabric whose pile warp forms pile loops or piles on the surface of the fabric. It is also called zhang velvet. It was mass-produced during the Ming Dynasty. It has two categories: flower and vegetable. Flower velvet divides part of the pile loops into piles according to patterns to form patterns, while the surface of plain velvet is all pile loops. The fluff or pile loops in velvet fabrics stand tightly, with elegant colors, firmness and wear resistance, and are good materials for clothing, hats and decorations. Velvet has two types of flowers and vegetables, and their source forms are different. Velvet seldom has texture, single or double color, or inlaid gold and silver threads.
