First MATERIAL MONDAY blog post about one of my favorite materials: VELOURS. Velour or velours is a plush, knitted fabric or textile similar to velvet. It is usually made from cotton, but can also be made from silk and synthetic materials such as polyester. Velour is used in a wide variety of applications, including fashion and interior.
The velour/velvet trend is (again) a major Fall 2016 trend, which will be seen in warm colors. Fashion maisons like Céline, Valentino and CHLOE were spotted with velour/velvet on the runway during the Fashion Weeks. Into interior, velours/velvet seating are always an option, especially this year. Enjoy!
