Crush + Gala
Once the chosen fabric of royalty and noblemen, it’s no wonder velvet can instantly elevate any space. Velvet is woven on a special loom that weaves two thicknesses of the material at the same time. The two pieces are then cut apart to create the pile effect, and the two lengths of fabric are wound on separate take-up rolls. This complicated process meant that velvet was expensive to make before industrial power looms became available, and well-made velvet remains a fairly costly fabric. Velvet is difficult to clean because of its pile, but modern dry cleaning methods make cleaning more feasible. Velvet pile is created by warp or vertical yarns and velveteen pile is created by weft or fill yarns.
Our velvets are made from polyester, which lends itself to withstand demanding commericial environments. With 100,000 double rubs, exceptional seam strength and superior pilling resistance our velvets Gala and Crush are engineered to stand up to the most demanding environments.
The signature mottled surface of crushed velvet beautifully reflects light for a unique luster in the pattern Crush. Crush is available in twenty sophisticated colors with an emphasis on soft and muted shades.
Gala’s intensely saturated colors take on a molten metallic feel that exudes luxury. Reminiscent of the finest shantung silk Gala’s subtle slub provides an incredibly soft hand and beautiful drape. Shimmering neutrals and lacquered jewel tones shine from all angles for a celebratory vibe.
