Take in a bit of velvet lore, then explore our Velvet Collection

A Brief History of Velvet 

The origins of velvet can be traced back 4,500 years ago to shuttle looms in China. Weavers in the Middle East increased the production and popularity of velvet around 2,000 BCE, including exporting it to Italy. From here, demand for the fine fabric spread across Europe.

Its luxurious look and feel, as well as its complicated and costly production process, has long made velvet a symbol of status. Historically, velvet was worn only by royalty, the aristocracy and clergy, and adorned only the places in which they would preside. It symbolized power, wealth, and success.

The invention of the mechanized loom in 1785 enabled the production of velvet more seamless and affordable, and therefore more widely accessible. Velvet remains a fabric of high regard and a token of class and opulence.
