Discover the VELVET = hair fabric

The hair is what marks the velvet from the other fabrics.

Velvet is the fabric which, more than the others, with is soft touch, brushes our senses with intensity.

The unified velvet (also called smooth or cut) contemporary production is achieved with the double piece technique and the obtained velvets are then submitted to different finishing treatments.

For example, a lot of velvets produced on double piece looms are first dyed in piece and then finished with special ravelling, trimming and polishing machines in order to achieve a perfectly uniform hair, the typical softness to the touch and brightness.

Not all the velvets are the same, the differences depend, first of all, on the chosen yarns for the hair weaving, which are determining for the brightness and softness.

On the 20 years special issue the Vocalese Rosae fabric collection for upholstery interpreted by Le Tapissier

L’Opificio shares with Image magazine 20 years of creativity dedicated to the alpine interiors.

More than the others, the alpine interiors allow the interior designer to express the sense of welcoming and charme. Sensitivity that can be perceived in the fabrics created by l’Opificio, using only precious natural and healthy yarns.

Vocalese Rosae and Treccia pattern collection, in linen and cotton yarns, is a contemporary interpretation of this welcoming spirit. A worth feeling texture with an unexpected colours proposals.
