Polyester Velvet

Velvet dates back to the 9th Century, however the first English association recorded was in 1278 when Edward I paid 100 shillings for a bed in Paris to be upholstered in Velvet. Since then it became a very popular fabric choice amongst nobility, due to its expensive appearance. However, with the modern day production of Polyester Velvet, it mirrors the style of Silk Velvet but with a lower price tag.

As a fabric, Polyester Velvet is also extremely durable and stain resistant making it an ideal drapery choice for schools and theatre applications. Not only does it uphold a rich aesthetic, but it’s acoustic and thermal insulation properties make it a perfect solution for stage curtains.

We stock Polyester Velvet in four different colours, all of which are tear and crease resistant.
