Velvet Revolution

Velvet Revolution - Warwick Velvets

We had a wonderful afternoon hosting Velvet Revolution last Friday.


Velvet was first introduced to Baghdad during the rule of Harun al-Rashid by Kashmiri merchants. Traditionally made from silk and associated with nobility, in 1399, King Richard II of England directed in his will that his body should be clothed in velveto.
Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which cut threads create a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive feel. The word ‘velvety’ is used as an adjective to mean “smooth like velvet.”
